What is Rydapt (midostaurin) for?

Rydapt (midostaurin) is indicated for the treatment of patients with1,3:

  • Newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) that is FLT3 mutation positive as detected by an FDA-approved test, in combination with chemotherapy (standard cytarabine and daunorubicin induction and cytarabine consolidation). Rydapt (midostaurin)is not indicated as a single-agent induction therapy for the treatment of patients with AML.

How does Rydapt (midostaurin) work?

The active substance in Rydapt is midostaurin, a kinase inhibitor that works by blocking several enzymes that promote cell growth2,4.

Midostaurin demonstrated the ability to inhibit FLT3 receptor signalling and cell proliferation, and it induced apoptosis in leukemic cells expressing ITD and TKD mutant FLT3 receptors or overexpressing wild type FLT3 and PDGF receptors. Midostaurin also demonstrated the ability to inhibit KIT signalling, cell proliferation, and histamine release and induce apoptosis in mast cells1,4.

The safety and efficacy of Rydapt (midostaurin) for patients with AML was based on a study involving 717 previously untreated patients. Although a specific median survival rate could not be reliably estimated it emerged that patients who received Rydapt (midostaurin) in combination with chemotherapy lived longer than patients who received chemotherapy alone. In addition, patients who received Rydapt (midostaurin) in combination with chemotherapy lived for a median of 8.2 months without certain complications (failure to achieve complete remission within 60 days of starting treatment, progression of leukemia or death), compared with a median of 3 months in patients who received chemotherapy alone2,3.

The safety and efficacy of Rydapt (midostaurin) for patients with advanced systemic mastocytosis (SM) was based on a main study that enrolled 116 adult patients with relapse or progression to 0, 1, or 2 prior regimens for SM, of which 89 were considered as evaluable for response1,3. Of these, 21% achieved complete (CR) or incomplete remission (ICR) within 6 cycles, and the effect lasted for an estimated median of 35.4 months (range: 6.6+, 65.8+). The median time to response was 0.5 months and ranged from 0.1 to 3.0 months1. The efficacy of midostaurin was confirmed in other patient groups as well1.

During the transaction process I was very well informed by the TheSocialMedwork team. They have put as much of their effort to offer best service to me. Moreover the medicine I have ordered was imported two weeks earlier then it was expected. I highly recommend The Social Med Work.
