Description

Ceritinib Capsule, marketed under the brand name Spexib, is a medication used in the treatment of a specific type of lung cancer known as non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Developed by Novartis Pharmaceuticals, ceritinib falls under the class of medicines called tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), which work by blocking certain proteins (receptors) on cancer cells, thereby inhibiting the growth and spread of the cancer.

The therapeutic drug is primarily indicated for patients with advanced NSCLC that has a mutation in the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene and whose disease has progressed despite treatment with other medicines.

Ceritinib is available in capsule form for oral administration and is typically prescribed by oncologists or healthcare providers specializing in the treatment of lung cancer. The dosage and duration of treatment with ceritinib may vary depending on factors such as the patient’s overall health, the stage of cancer, and any other medications they may be taking.
