Generic imatinib and original

S Lejniece, I Udre, A Rivkina
BACKGROUND: Imatinib is tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) and as a targeted anti-cancer agent has significantly changed chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) prognosis and patient survival. Currently TKI is the main therapy in CML Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph-positive) cases. When generics of imatinib appeared in the pharmaceuticals market, reimbursement policies in many countries switched to using generics or encouraged use of generic imatinib to lower the expenses. Cost savings were substantial; however, for doctors and CML patients the efficacy, safety and quality of generic imatinib were an issue of concern...

Objective: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of generic imatinib (Genike, Chiatai Tianqing Pharmaceutical Group Co., Ltd.) and imatinib (Glevic, Novartis, Switzerland) in newly diagnosed patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase (CML-CP) . Methods: A retrospective study of 323 CML-CP patients (205 in Glivec treatment group and 118 in Genike group) who were ≥ 18 years old receiving imatinib monotherapy over the period of June 2013 to March 2016 was done to compare the differences of cytogenetics, molecular curative effect, survival, and adverse reactions between the two groups...

Narrow Therapeutic Index Drugs (NTIDs) are characterized by a small range between therapeutic and toxicological effect. Missing international harmonized definition for NTIDs the EMA does not even have a definition of NTIDs in contrast to the U.S. FDA, Health Canada, and the Japanese NIHS. Sunitinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), indicated for the treatment of certain cancer types, will be running off-patent soon. Falling into the category of NTID would have a major impact on regulatory requirements for generic applications...

Treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) has dramatically changed the life expectancy of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) patients. Although the impact of first-generation TKIs on quality of life (QoL) was shown in CML, the effects of new generic formulations of imatinib mesylate (IM) are unclear. We evaluated differences in QoL under treatment with first- or second-generation TKIs. Fifty-two patients diagnosed with CP-CML completed the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionaire-C30, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and General Health Questionnaire...

Long-term treatment with imatinib mesylate (IM) allows patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) to live a near-normal lifespan. However, the fact that tyrosine kinase inhibitors, including IM, are extremely expensive is a major cause of poor adherence, resulting in disease relapse or drug resistance. Therefore, physicians are encouraged to prescribe generic drugs to reduce the financial burden of medical expenses. In Japan, only generic drugs that have a basic chemical structure and pharmacokinetic data that are the same as those of the original drug are approved...

In an effort to collaborate the data of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patient from all over India,meeting was conceived by ICON (Indian Cooperative Oncology Network) in 2010. This article presents the summarized picture of the data presented in the meeting. In the meeting 8115 patients data was presented and 18 centres submitted their manuscripts comprising of 6677 patients. This data represents large series of patients from all over the country treated on day to day clinical practice and presents the actual outcomes of CML patients in India...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the budget impact of the government use licenses policy, a form of compulsory licensing used by the government, on seven patented drugs, namely, efavirenz, lopinavir/ritonavir combination, clopidogrel, letrozole, docetaxel, erlotinib, and imatinib, in Thailand between 2006 and 2008. METHODS: By using government's perspective, budget impact was estimated within a 5-year period after the introduction of the policy. The number of patients who need treatment with each drug and the costs of treatments by both original and generic versions were obtained from Thai government agencies...
