Description: Everolimus, also known as RAD001, is a derivative of the natural macrocyclic lactone sirolimus with immunosuppressant and anti-angiogenic properties. In cells, everolimus binds to the immunophilin FK Binding Protein-12 (FKBP-12) to generate an immunosuppressive complex that binds to and inhibits the activation of the mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR), a key regulatory kinase. Inhibition of mTOR activation results in the inhibition of T lymphocyte activation and proliferation associated with antigen and cytokine (IL-2, IL-4, and IL-15) stimulation and the inhibition of antibody production.

Additional Information

Approved indication ( source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everolimus ). Everolimus is approved for various conditions: (1). Advanced kidney cancer (approved in March 2009). (2). Prevention of organ rejection after renal transplant(April 2010. (3). Subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA) associated with tuberous sclerosis (TS) in patients who are not suitable for surgical intervention (October 2010). (4). Progressive or metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors not surgically removable (May 2011).
AFINITOR is supplied as tablets for oral administration containing 5 mg and 10 mg of everolimus together with butylated hydroxytoluene, magnesium stearate, lactose monohydrate, hypromellose, crospovidone and lactose anhydrous as inactive ingredients.
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everolimus, As of October 2010, Phase III trials are under way in breast cancer, gastric cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma and lymphoma. Interim phase III trial results in 2011 show that adding Afinitor (everolimus) to exemestane therapy against advanced breast cancer can significantly improve progression-free survival compared with exemestane therapy alone.
Mechanism of action of Everolimus
Mechanism of action of Everolimus
In a similar fashion to other mTOR inhibitors its effect is solely on the mTORC1 protein and not on the mTORC2 protein. This can lead to a hyper-activation of the kinase AKT via inhibition on the mTORC1 negative feedback loop while not inhibiting the mTORC2 positive feedback to AKT. This AKT elevation can lead to longer survival in some cell types.
