Mechanism of action
The activity of dasatinib is manifested in cellular models of leukemia. This occurs both with respect to sensitive cells and against imatinib-resistant cells. Dasatinib helps to overcome the resistance of cells to imatinib associated with overexpression of BCR-ABL, BCR-ABL kinase domain mutations, activation of alternative mechanisms inducing kinases of the SRC family (LYN, NSC), as well as overexpression of the multiple drug resistance gene.
