Astellas Oncology is investigating Gilteritinib, a FLT3/AXL tyrosine kinase inhibitor in a clinical setting for the treatment of relapsed or refractory AML patients who have a FLT3 mutation that is seen in approximately 30 percent of AML patients.1
Gilteritinib compound exhibits inhibitory activity against the gene mutations FLT3-ITD, FLT3-TKD and AXL. A randomized Phase 3 trial of Gilteritinib at 120 mg per day in relapsed and refractory AML patients is underway.
Astellas Oncology is investigating a treatment for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer who are EGFR positive and are harboring T790M mutations, which cause acquired resistance to EGFR inhibitors in roughly 60 percent of NSCLC patients.2
ASP8273 is an orally available, irreversible, mutant-selective EGFR-TKI (epidermal growth factor receptor — tyrosine-kinase inhibitor) that inhibits the kinase activity of EGFR-activating mutations as well as the T790M resistance mutation.
