How does Erlocip work?

Erlocip 150mg Tablet work contain erlotinib, a potent inhibitor of tyrosine kinase, an enzyme that phosphorylates a protein inside a cell, which is the way many cell processes are regulated.  Tyrosine kinases (TK) are cell surface receptors for many cellular messengers including growth factors and erlotinib in Erlocip tablets 150mg acts as a potent inhibitor of the Epidermal Growth Factor receptor (EGFR).  EGF stimulates cell growth, proliferation and differentiation in normal cells.  It acts by binding with high affinity to its cell surface receptor EGFR, which belongs to the TK family of receptors.  When EGF binds to EGFR, the receptor undergoes a shape change, which activates TK activity by phosphorylation of its substrates within the cell and this is the first step in a complex cell signalling pathway involved in cell proliferation and survival.  Normally EGFR activation is regulated and therefore, cell proliferation is controlled and programmed cell death (apoptosis) takes place.  However, the mutation associated with NSCLC leaves the receptor in a state that is constantly activated or turned on (constitutively activated) even when EGF is not bound to the receptor.  This results in cells that are stimulated to constantly proliferate and survive leading to NSCLC. Erlocip 150mg Tablet reviews Over-expression of the EGFR is thought to be associated with malignant transformation and metastasis of pancreatic cancer, due to the pancreatic cells being over stimulated to proliferate and grow.  Erlotinib in Erlocip tablets 150mg works by blocking the intracellular phosphorylation of EGFR, which blocks the signalling pathway for cell proliferation and survival in NSCLC cells and pancreatic cancer cells.  This action of Erlotinib in Erlocip tablets 150mg blocks the proliferation of the tumour cells and induces cell death, which results in tumour regression.
