Summary of Clinical Use Click here for help
In August 2014 the drug's developer, Pfizer, announced the start of a multi-center, open-label expanded access program (EAP) in the United States. Through this program, palbociclib is being made available for use in combination with letrozole (an aromatase inhibitor) for post-menopausal women with hormone receptor positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative (HER2-) advanced breast cancer for whom letrozole is considered appropriate therapy. This EAP is registered as clinical trial NCT02142868.

In February 2015 the US FDA approved palbociclib for the treatment of postmenopausal women with advanced (metastatic) breast cancer (in combination with letrozole as described above [1,5,8,17]). In early 2016, the FDA expanded use further by approving palbociclib in combination with fulvestrant (an estrogen receptor antagonist) for the treatment of women with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative advanced or metastatic breast cancer with disease progression following endocrine therapy .

Palbociclib is being tested in many clinical trials to assess effectiveness against several other types of cancer. To view the current list of trials link to
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
The cyclin D-CDK4/6 (CDK-4/6:INK4:Rb) pathway is key to regulating cell growth in many types of human cancer [2,10-11], such as genetic subtypes of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC, [3,10,18], melanoma, Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), and ovarian and breast cancers [3-4]. Inhibiting this pathway prevents cell cycle transition from G1 to S phase, induces cell senescence and in some cases results in apoptosis [3].
