About PEMAZYRE® (pemigatinib)

DNA Helix

PEMAZYRE is indicated as monotherapy for the treatment of adults with locally advanced, unresectable or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) with fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) fusion or rearrangement, that have progressed after at least one line of systemic therapy (see the “Clinical efficacy” section of the Swiss Professional Information). Contraindications for use include hypersensitivity to the active substance or excipients and concomitant use with St John’s wort.

Pemigatinib is a kinase inhibitor of FGFR1, 2 and 3. It inhibits FGFR phosphorylation and signalling, and decreases cell viability in cells expressing FGFR genetic alterations, including point mutations, amplifications, and fusions or rearrangements.

FGFR2 fusion positivity status must be confirmed prior to initiation of PEMAZYRE therapy. Assessment for FGFR2 fusion positivity in tumour specimens should be performed with a validated diagnostic test.
