Osicent (Osimertinib) 80
Osimertinib is kinase inhibitor of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), which binds irreversibly to certain mutant forms of EGFR (T790M, L858R, and exon 19 deletion) at approximately 9-fold lower concentrations than wild-type. In cultured cells and animal tumor implantation models, osimertinib exhibited anti-tumor activity against non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) lines harboring EGFR-mutations (T790M/L858R, L858R, T790M/exon 19 deletion, and exon 19 deletion) and, to a lesser extent, wild-type EGFR amplifications.
Osimertinib is a kinase inhibitor indicated for the treatment of patients with metastatic epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) T790M mutation-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), as detected by an FDA-approved test, who have progressed on or after EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy.
Strong CYP3A Inhibitors
Concomitant administration of Osimertinib should be avoided with strong CYP3A inhibitors, including macrolide antibiotics (e.g., telithromycin), antifungals (e.g., itraconazole), antivirals (e.g., ritonavir), nefazodone, as concomitant use of strong CYP3A inhibitors may increase Osimertinib plasma concentrations. If no other alternative exists, patients should be monitored more closely for adverse reactions.
Strong CYP3A Inducers
Concomitant administration of Osimertinib should be avoided with strong CYP3A inducers (e.g., phenytoin, rifampicin, carbamazepine, St. John’s Wort) as strong CYP3A inducers may decrease Osimertinib plasma concentrations.
