How Palbocent 125 works

Palbocent 125 is an anti-cancer medication. Cyclin dependent kinase 4 and 6 (chemical messengers) are downstream of signaling pathways which lead to the proliferation of cells. This medicine works by inhibiting cyclin dependent kinase 4 and 6, thus arrests the cancer cell cycle (cell growing process). It also targets the estrogen (hormone) receptor-positive breast cancer cells by disrupting the cell cycle.

Palbociclib is a reversible, selective inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 4 and 6. Cyclin D1, CDK 4 and 6 are downstream of multiple signalling pathways which lead to cellular proliferation. Inhibition of CDK4/6 reduces proliferation of breast cancer cell lines by blocking progression from G1 into S phase of the cell cycle.

Neutropenia observed in clinical trials; febrile neutropenia also reported; monitor CBC count prior to starting drug and at the beginning of each cycle, as well as on Day 14 of the first 2 cycles, and as clinically indicated; dose interruption, dose reduction, or delay in starting treatment cycles is recommended for patients who develop grade 3 or 4 neutropenia
