Buy Tasigna 150mg
Nilotinib is a medicine which is given to treat leukaemia. Leukaemia is cancer of cells in the bone marrow – these are the cells which develop into blood cells. Nilotinib is given for the type of leukaemia called chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML).
In cancer, certain cells in the body grow and multiply in a way that is ‘out of control’. Chemotherapy (anti-cancer) medicines work by inhibiting the way cells grow and increase in number. Nilotinib belongs to a group of anti-cancer medicines known as tyrosine kinase inhibitors. These medicines work by blocking the chemical messengers (called tyrosine kinases) which send signals to cells to grow. This stops the production of cancer cells.
