Ivosidenib (Tibsovo)

Contents

General information

Class/mechanism: IDH1 inhibitor. Ivosidenib inhibits the mutant isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) enzyme at lower drug concentrations than wild-type IDH1. Inhibiting mutant IDH1 enzyme prevents formation of the oncometabolite 2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG) in leukemia cells, causes a reduction in IDH1-expressing tumor cells, and increases percentages of mature myeloid cells.[1][2][3]
