Imatinib mesylate is the mesylate salt of imatinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor with antineoplastic activity. Imatinib binds to an intracellular pocket located within tyrosine kinases (TK), thereby inhibiting ATP binding and preventing phosphorylation and the subsequent activation of growth receptors and their downstream signal transduction pathways. This agent inhibits TK encoded by the bcr-abl oncogene as well as receptor TKs encoded by the c-kit and platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR) oncogenes. Imatinib is used for chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) that are Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+) and certain types of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), systemic mastocytosis, and myelodysplastic syndrome.

How to use
In vitro assays for inhibition of a panel of tyrosine and serine/threonine protein kinases show that Imatinib inhibits the v-Abl tyrosine kinase and PDGFR potently with an IC50 of 0.6 and 0.1 μM, respectively. Imatinib inhibits the SLF-dependent activation of wild-type c-kit kinase activity with a IC50 for these effects of approximately 0.1 μM, which is similar to the concentration required for inhibition of PDGFR. Imatinib exhibits growth-inhibitory activity on the human bronchial carcinoid cell line NCI-H727 and the human pancreatic carcinoid cell line BON-1 with an IC50 of 32.4 and 32.8 μM, respectively. A recent study shows that Imatinib has the potential to exert its antileukemia effects in chronic myelogenous leukemia by down-regulating hERG1 K(+) channels, which are highly expressed in leukemia cells and appear of exceptional importance in favoring leukemogenesis.
Imatinib produces a different antitumor effect on three xenografted tumors derived from surgical samples of fresh human small cell lung cancers, with 80%, 40% and 78% growth inhibition of SCLC6, SCLC61 and SCLC108 tumors, respectively, and no significant inhibition of SCLC74 growth. In high fat fed ApoE(-/-) mice, Imatinib significantly reduces the high fat-induced lipid staining area by 30%, 27% and 35% compared to high-fat diet untreated controls when dosed by gavage at 10, 20 and 40 mg/kg, respectively, and suppresses carotid artery lipid accumulation.
