Iressa® (Gefitinib) Tablets

What is Iressa?

«Iressa» — is an oral chemotherapeutic agent with targeted action based on an active substance gefitinib. Iressa is approved for the treatment of late-stage metastatic or locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). With Iressa treatment, tumour regression or long-term disease stabilization are observed in virtually 100% of patients. Iressa increases median overall survival from 4 – 6 to 8 - 10 months and 1-year survival — from 10 to 20%.

How Iressa Works?

Gefitinib (Iressa) is a selective small molecule inhibitor of epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase with mechanism of action based on blocking (inhibiting) intracellular kinases (VEGFR-2, PDGFR) and KIT receptors located on the surface of cell membranes. Gefitinib selectively blocks cell division processes in tumours without affecting healthy cell metabolism. Gefitinib precludes further tumour growth and metastases by inhibition of angiogenesis and activation of tumour cell apoptosis.

When Iressa is Used?

Iressa is approved as first line therapy in patients with unresectable NSCLC with EGFR mutations. EGFR mutations are more common in women; patients with a non-smoking history; patients with adenocarcinoma (specific type of NSCLC); people of Asian origin.

Tests may be performed in order to determine EGFR levels. They help treating physicians to establish if Iressa treatment can be favorable. These tests may be performed simultaneously with cancer diagnosis or using tumour cell samples taken from prior biopsies or surgically removed tissues.

Iressa is currently being studied for the treatment of other malignancies.
