Gefitinib hydrochloride 
4-Quinazolinamine,N-(3-chloro-4-fluorophenyl)-7-methoxy-6-[3-(4-morpholinyl)propoxy]-,hydrochloride (1:1)
(CAS 184475-55-6)

Gefitinib Hcl(ZD-1839 Hcl) is an EGFR inhibitor, which interrupts signaling through the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in target cells. Therefore, it is only effective in cancers with mutated and overactive EGFR.
IC50 Value: 37 nM (Tyr1173-NR6wtEGFR cells); 26 nM (Tyr1173 -NR6W cells) [1]
Target: EGFR inhibitor
in vitro: Gefitinib effectively inhibits all tyrosine phosphorylation sites on EGFR in both the high and low-EGFR-expressing cell lines including NR6, NR6M and NR6W cell lines. The phosphorylation sites Tyr1173 and Tyr992 are less sensitive requiring higher concentrations of Gefitinib for inhibition. Gefitinib effectively blocks the phosphorylation of PLC-γ, with IC50 of 27nM, in NR6W cells. The NR6wtEGFR and NR6M cell lines has low levels of PLC-γ phosphorylation but the level in the NR6M cell line is more resistant to inhibition by Gefitinib with IC50 of 43 nM and 369 nM, respectively. Gefitinib inhibits Akt phosphorylations, with IC50 of 220 and 263nM, in the low-EGFR- and -EGFRvIII-expressing cell lines, respectively. Gefitinib in the dose range from 0.1 to 0.5μM significantly facilitates, rather than abrogates, colony formation of NR6M cells. However, at a concentration of 2 μM Gefitinib completely blocks NR6M colony formation. Gefitinib rapidly and in a dose-dependent manner inhibits EGFR and ERK phosphorylation up to 72 hours after EGF stimulation in both the high- and low-EGFR-expressing cell lines [1]. Gefitinib is the monolayer growth of these EGF-driven untransformed MCF10A cells with an IC50 of 20 nM [2]. The combination of metformin with gefitinib induced a strong antiproliferative and proapoptotic effect in NSCLC cell lines that harbored wild-type LKB1 gene [3].
in vivo: Gefitinib treatment increased the infiltration of inflammatory cells, which produced more pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-1β), in the lungs of the irradiated rats on days 15 and 57, while gefitinib treatment reduced collagen content of the lungs in irradiated rats and decreased proliferation and EGFR expression in the lung fibroblasts from irradiated rats on day 57 [4]. SN-38 and its glucuronide after irinotecan (50 or 100 mg/kg) was orally administered with or without gefitinib 100 mg/kg to rats [5].
Toxicity: Three volunteers experienced adverse events (AEs) that were considered possibly related to gefitinib (pruritus and dry skin), and 6 volunteers experienced procedure-related AEs (cannula-site reaction and rhinorrhea) [6].
Clinical trial: Third-line Treatment of Gefitinib in NSCLC Patients. Phase 1
