Details

What is basically Geftinat: Geftinat, generic Gefitinib, a cancer medication that stops the growth  of cancer cells in the body. Gefitinib is used especially to cure lung cancer. It is also used to prevent cancer from spreading to other parts of the body. It is also used to treat breast malignancy. Gefitinib is the inhibitor of epidermal growth factor receptor's (EGFR) tyrosine kinase domain.

How Gefitinib works: Gefitinib binds to the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) site of the enzyme and inhibits EGFR tyrosine kinase.

Gefitinib interrupts signals via epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in mutated cells. Henceforth it is effective in mutated cells.
