General Information

Nilotinib, also known as AMN107 and sold under the brand name Tasigna, is a medication used to treat Philadelphia chromosome (Ph+)-positive chronic myelogenous leukaemia

A Phase I clinical trial in 2006 showed that this drug was relatively safe and offered significant therapeutic benefits in cases of CML which were found to be resistant to treatment with imatinib (Gleevec), another tyrosine kinase inhibitor used as a first-line treatment for CML.
