Erlotinib Mechanism of Action
Erlotinib is to be introduced for the treatment of malignancy and it is of the selectively targeted category.
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor (also called ‘human epidermal growth factor receptor or HER1 or Erbß,) is a transmembrane receptor-tyrosine-kinase that regulates growth and differentiation of epithelial cells. The binding of a ligand (EGF) to the extracellular domain of the receptor induces dimerization leading to activation of the tyrosine kinase activity of the intracellular domain resulting in autophosphorylation of the kinase and phosphorylation of several cytoplasmic regulatory proteins which modify gene transcription to regulate growth. Certain epithelial cancers over-express EGF receptors or have an active EGFR mutation. Their growth is critically dependent upon the activation of this receptor.
Erlotinib is a synthetic compound that penetrates cells, binds to the tyrosine kinase domain of the EGF receptors, and prevents photophosphorylation of regulatory proteins.
Erlotinib vs Gefitinib vs Afatinib Vs Osimertinib
Found effective in selected patients of non-small cell lung cancer that have EGFR activating mutation.
Lung cancers in non-smokers and in women are generally of this mutant type. In such cases, it has been found to be more effective than cytotoxic drugs. Gefitinib monotherapy has been used for locally advanced or metastatic lung cancers after cisplatin and docetaxel have failed.
Drug interactions with inducers/inhibitors of CYP3A4 are likely. The dose is 250mg per day orally once.
It is used in a subtype of cell lung cancer which is non-small in nature.
A combination of Erlonat Erlotinib and Gemcitabine is used for treating advanced/metastatic pancreatic cancer as well.
Few cases of serious hepatic dysfunction have also been observed in patients suffering from pre-existing liver disease.
The dose is 100-150mg once daily to be taken 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal.
It is a type of tyrosine kinase inhibitor that is used as monotherapy for the first-line handling of EGF Receptor as a tyrosine kinase inhibitor in patients, usually, adults suffering from metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) or even locally advanced cases.
Generally, these tumours have non-resistant EGFR mutations. Apart from that, it is used in adult patients with metastatic NSCLC of squamous epithelial histology along with ongoing platinum-based chelate drugs or after the therapy, and even in locally advanced cases.
It is a third-generation epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor. For adults, the dose is 80mg once daily.
