A Trial of LEE011 in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors or Lymphoma.

LEE011 is a new oral drug designed to inhibit the activity of an enzyme known as CDK4/6. CDK4/6 is involved in the process that allows both normal and cancer cells to divide and multiply. Cancer cells are often driven to divide and multiply by abnormalities that increase the activity of CDK4. Hence there is hope that blocking the activity of CDK4 may slow the growth of some cancers. LEE011 has shown anti-cancer activity in several different tumor models in animals. Becau...
