General information

Class/mechanism: Small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor, oral cMET inhibitor. Inhibits MET (mesenchymal-epithelial transition), including the mutant variant which results from exon 14 skipping. Cells with MET exon 14 skipping have a protein with a missing regulatory domain, which results in reduced negative regulation and therefore increased downstream MET signaling. Capmatinib was demonstrated to inhibit cancer cell growth driven by a mutant MET variant lacking exon 14.[1][2][3]
Route: PO
Extravasation: n/a
