Details

Iressa is an FDA approved medication that contains gefitinib as the main active pharmaceutical ingredient. Gefitinib belongs to the class of tyrosine kinase inhibitor enzyme and is mainly used to treat various kinds of cancer. Iressa shows its effect by averting cancerous cells from growing and multiplying. Gefitinib acts by binding to the epidermal growth factor receptors (EGRF’s) and hence inhibit the binding of epidermal growth factor, and hence inhibits the activation of tyrosine kinase. This inhibition of activation of tyrosine kinase results into the inhibition of growth and division of cancer causing cells. Gefitinib acts as an epidermal growth factor receptor- tyrosine kinase inhibitor that shows its effect to obstruct the signals for the growth and survival of cancer causing cells in case of non-small cell lung cancer.
