About Gemcitabine hydrochloride oral formulation (GemOral®)


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 first pass metabolism to dFdU. 


GemOral® was developed based on InnoPharmax's proprietary formulations. Lower dose is designed with novel oral formulation due to metronomic chemotherapy consideration (frequently administration with low dose). By metronomic chemotherapy, GemOral® can reduces the level of toxicity significantly. GemOral® can be submitted through 505(b)(2) pathway, which offers a unique opportunity for rapid approval.


Up to date, the clinical data of GemOral® has been shown its better pharmacokinetic characteristics. Due to its new administration route and unique formulation, GemOral® has been shown its clinical benefits in several new indications with promising in-vivo data.
