Overview

Pemazyre is a cancer medicine used to treat adults with cholangiocarcinoma (biliary tract cancer or cancer of the bile ducts) when the cancer cells have an abnormal form of a receptor (target) called FGFR2 on their surface. Pemazyre is used when the cancer has spread to other parts of the body or cannot be removed by surgery and has worsened after previous treatment with at least one cancer medicine.

Cholangiocarcinoma is rare, and Pemazyre was designated an ‘orphan medicine’ (a medicine used in rare diseases) on 24 August 2018.

Pemazyre contains the active substance pemigatinib.
