Imbruvica 140 mg – Ibrutinib 140 mg belongs to the group of anti-tumor drugs (protein kinase inhibitors). The main active substance of the drug is Ibrutinib. The drug is used mainly for the treatment of patients, suffering from mantle cell lymphoma. Moreover, Ibrutinib has recently been used for the therapy of chronic bovine leukosis in the patients who can’t use immune modulators.
In the course of drug therapy, an overwhelming majority of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia had an increase in the number of lymphocytes, which was reversible.

In addition, the indication is chronic lymphocytic leukemia, in connection with which one line of therapy has been performed. The drug is used if the patient has contraindications for chemoimmunotherapy with a chromosomal mutation TP53 or a deletion of 17p.
