Veenat is a drug used to treat certain types of cancer. It is currently marketed by Novartis as Gleevec (USA) or Glivec (Europe/Australia) as its mesylate salt, Veenat mesilate (INN) (formerly called STI-571). It is used in treating chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) and other cancers. It is the first member of a new class of agents that act by specifically inhibiting a certain enzyme that is characteristic of a particular cancer cell, rather than non-specifically inhibiting and killing all rapidly dividing cells. In CML, the enzyme tyrosine kinase is stuck in the "on" position. Veenat binds to the site of tyrosine kinase activity, and prevents its activity.
Note: Veenat is a prescription Drug and should be used under Proper Medical Guidance and Advice. Do not share the medicine with others, since they may be suffering from a problem that is not effectively treated by this drug.
