The medication called Imatikast (Imatinib) helps to treat various ailments such as blood cancer and gastrointestinal tumors. Imatikast (Imatinib) is consumed in the form of tablets (100 mg). It helps to treat disorders related to blood cells.
GIST starts to develop inside the walls of our digestive passages. It is known to be a tumor spreading to other parts of our body. Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans also fall under the types of tumors treated with Imatikast (imatinib).
This tumor forms under the uppermost layer of skin; it is close to impossible to remove this tumor surgically. At the same time, it also acts fast to spread to the other body parts.
Imatinib is a part of medications known as kinase inhibitors. Therefore, when showing the effect, it blocks the actions of abnormal proteins. These are responsible for signaling the cancer cells to proliferate – meaning that it will ultimately stop the spread.
