Overview

Varlitinib is an oral, selective, reversible, small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor of both ErbB-2 (Her-2/neu) and EGFR. Over-expression of ErbB-2 and EGFR receptors in tumors is predictive of poor prognosis in cancer patients. Varlitinib has shown significant anti-tumor activity in preclinical models of human breast, lung, and epidermal carcinoma tumors.
