Gleevec Information
Drug name: Gleevec
Generic name: Imatinib
Use: Leukemia, stomach/digestive tumors .

Gleevec is a medication used in cancer patients. It is primarily used to various types of leukemia such as Philadelphia chromosome positivechronic myeloid leukemia (CML). It is also prescribed, however, to treat certain types of tumor in the stomach and digestive system. The active ingredient is imatinib, which is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. It works by blocking (inhibiting) signals within the leukaemia or cancer cell that make them grow and divide. Blocking the signals makes the cells die. Imatinib is usually taken for as long as patients are benefiting from it. We currently have brand Novartis Gleevec and generic Imatinib (100 mg, 400 mg) available in stock. Call us at 1-866-920-3784 (toll-free) or email us.
