About Gemcitabine Hydrochloride Oral Formulation (D07001-F4)
Gemcitaine (2',2'-difluorodeoxycytidine) is a fluorine-substituted deoxycytidine analog with a broad spectrum of antitumor activity.  It is rapidly and extensively deaminated by cytidine deaminase to the inactive metabolite, 2',2'-difluorodeoxyuridine (dFdU).  It has been reported in a reported clinical study that the systemic exposure to oral gemcitabine was low due to extensive firstpass metabolism to dFdU. 
D07001-F4 was developed based on InnoPharmax's proprietary formulations to overcome the problem of low bioavailability of oral gemcitabine. In dog pharmacokinetic study, gemcitabine was well absorbed from the D07001-F4 formulation with oral bioavailability over 70%. Preclinical studies have shown that D07001-F4 shows efficacy in pancreatic as well as other selected tumor models.
