Tepmetko is a cancer medicine that is used to treat adults with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) when the cancer is advanced and its cells have particular genetic mutations (changes) leading to ‘mesenchymal-epithelial transition factor gene exon 14’ (METex14) skipping. This means that the cancer cells make an abnormal form of a protein called MET because a part of the MET gene known as exon 14 is not used.

Tepmetko is used when the patient needs further treatment after receiving immunotherapy or platinum-based chemotherapy, or both.

Tepmetko contains the active substance tepotinib.
