Erlocip 100mg How To Work
Erlocip 100mg tablet is an anti-cancer medication. It works by blocking the action of the abnormal protein that signals cancer cells to multiply. This helps to stop or slow the spread of cancer cells.
What Is Erlocip 100mg
Erlocip tablets 100mg are used to treat non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which is the most common form of lung cancer and grows more slowly than small cell lung cancer (SCLC). NSCLC is associated with a mutation in the gene for Epidermal Growth Factor receptor (EGFR)1 and treatment of NSCLC with Erlocip tablets 100mg is only effective where an EGFR mutation is present in the tumour cells2.
Erlocip tablets 100mg are used for treatment of locally advanced (stage III) or metastatic (stage IV) NSCLC either as first-line treatment, as monotherapy maintenance treatment for stable disease after 4 cycles of standard platinum-based first-line chemotherapy or after failure of at least one prior chemotherapy regimen.
Erlocip tablets 100mg are also used to treat locally advanced, unresectable (inoperable) or metastatic pancreatic cancer in combination with gemcitabine, an anti-cancer drug used for chemotherapy. Advanced pancreatic cancer has a very poor survival rate and Erlocip tablets 100mg in combination with gemcitabine can improve the survival rate.
