Indications and Usage

Despite the widespread prevalence among women, breast cancer is losing ground every year due to the constant development and emergence of new anti-cancer drugs that are used in treatment abroad. In recent years, oncology has made an increasing emphasis on biological agents, which in practice are quite effective and are not as toxic to the body as chemotherapy drugs.

In addition, as part of a combination cancer treatment program abroad, they can reduce the dose of hormonal and chemotherapy drugs.

palbocyclib imbranceAfter several years of laboratory and clinical trials in February 2015, the United States officially approved a new biological product for the treatment of breast cancer abroad Palbotsiklib (Ibrans), developed and manufactured by the famous pharmaceutical company Pfizer. According to the mechanism of action, Palbocyclib is an inhibitor (antagonist) of certain cyclin-dependent enzymes of tumor cells. Their blocking with the drug leads to a significant slowdown in tumor development.

For clinical trials, 165 patients with breast cancer were selected – the experimental and control groups. Patients in the control group underwent chemotherapy with Letrozole; in the experimental group, Letrozole was combined with the test drug.
