Xospata is a cancer medicine used to treat adults with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), a cancer of white blood cells.

Xospata is used when AML has either come back or has not improved following previous treatment and is only given to patients whose cancer cells have a particular change (mutation) in the gene for a protein called FLT3.

The active substance in Xospata is gilteritinib.

AML is rare, and Xospata was designated an ‘orphan medicine’ (a medicine used in rare diseases) on 17 January 2018.
