The FDA has granted Fast Track designation to gilteritinib for adult patients with FLT3 mutation-positive relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML), according to Tokyo-based Astellas Pharma.

Exposure-related inhibition of FLT3 phosphorylation increased along with increasing gilteritinib concentrations in plasma. Most patients receiving a daily dose of 80 mg or higher had at least 90% of FLT3 phosphorylation inhibition by day 8. In-vivo inhibition of FLT3 occurred at all dose levels.
