Description

This medication is a biological therapy medicine used to treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a rare type of cancer that attacks blood and bone marrow, where blood cells are produced. Most people respond effectively to this medication, which keeps CML at bay for a while.  

How does Gleevec work?  

Gleevec and generic Imatinib function as tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), which inhibit chemical messengers known as tyrosine kinases. As a result, these chemical messengers are unable to assist in the transmission of growth signals in cells. Cancer cells are unable to develop and replicate as a result.  

Gleevec Mechanism of Action

Tyrosine kinase enzymes are important regulators of cell development processes. They are being targeted by a number of new anticancer medications, including imatinib, the first protein kinase inhibitor to enter the market and the first drug to target a molecular structure unique to cancer cells.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What are Gleevec side effects long term?  

Some of the negative effects reported in clinical research may occur with long-term Gleevec use such as congestive heart failure and left-sided heart failure. 

Can I take Gleevec for Gist?  

Most persons with GISTs are treated with this medicine at some time. This medication can be used to shrink a tumor before surgery and delay or avert recurrence of high-risk GIST after surgery. 

Do patients undergoing CML Gleevec treatment need to undergo chemotherapy? 

Chemotherapy is rarely used now as the main treatment for CML because tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) like this medication work a lot better. The survival rate of patients with CML, even five years after being diagnosed, has significantly increased to more than 80%.  

Patients will continue to be monitored by their doctor to see the response of CML to  Gleevec treatment. Chemotherapy may be used only when TKI ceases to work and is no longer effective.
