General information

Class/mechanism: Cyclin-dependent kinase 4 and 6 inhibitor. Cyclin D1, CDK4, and CDK6 are downstream of signaling pathways which result in cellular proliferation. The use of palbociclib with antiestrogens was observed to increase growth arrest in estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer cell lines by decreasing retinoblastoma protein (Rb) phosphorylation, which resulted in reduced E2F expression and signaling. Palbociclib has been observed to cause cell cycle arrest between G1 to S phase of the cell cycle in ER-positive breast cancer cell lines.[1][2][3]
Route: PO
Extravasation: n/a

For conciseness and simplicity, HemOnc.org currently will focus on treatment regimens and not list information such as: renal/hepatic dose adjustments, metabolism (including CYP450), excretion, monitoring parameters (although this will be considered for checklists), or manufacturer. Instead, for the most current information, please refer to your preferred pharmacopeias such as Micromedex, Lexicomp, UpToDate (courtesy of Lexicomp), or the package insert.[1]
