The medication works by targeting the abnormal tyrosine kinase protein that is found at the surface of the cancer cell. The tyrosine kinase protein is responsible for sending signals and telling the cells to divide but when we block the protein the cell division is stopped and finally the cells die off. Chronic myelogenous leukaemia treatment with Imatinib got its approval from US FDA and gave approval to Imatinib for gastrointestinal stromal treatment in 2002.
