Mechanism Of Action Fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) are tyrosine kinase receptors that play a role in cell proliferation, differentiation, migration, survival, and angiogenesis. Upon binding of extracellular signals, primarily fibroblast growth factors, FGFR dimerizes to promote phosphorylation of downstream molecules and activation of the Ras-mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway. In some cancers, the FGFR signalling pathway is aberrant and disrupted, leading to unregulated cell proliferation and growth, including malignant cells. Alterations in the FGFR receptors, including mutations, amplifications, and fusions, are associated with a wide array of neoplasms, including prostate, urothelial, ovarian, breast, and liver cancer.
Description of the Drug: Infigratinib is an FGFR inhibitor used to treat locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma in adults with a fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) rearrangement.
