>>update>> 03/14/07: TykerB FDA Approved

Tykerb / GW2016 / lapatinib / is a step closer to market and Xcovery is on it.

They had a C&EN cover back in August, and you can check out the ’06 ASCO report from their renal cell carcinoma Ph iii. (scroll a bit for slides and even a video.) But the highlight from that trial was: 1.25g / day and it didn’t work 😦

    That’s the price of puttinng a aminomethyl-substituted furan into the molecule – I bet the human PK is going to be awful. Unfortunately furan is needed for potency/

    Hey, ranitidine sold well…
    But maybe not the 30h residence time you oncology buffs want, true.

    Greetings friend from Romania, I recommend you check the Tykerb homepage for help finding the actual drug substance.

    KinasePro is only here to talk about the research side of the drug world, buying and selling these things is somebody elses job I’m afraid.
