Patients with this type of cancer develop large numbers of abnormal white blood cells. This drug is used if AML is linked to an alteration of a gene called FLT3. Xospata is given after other cancer treatments did not work or have stopped working. The active ingredient in Xospata is Gilteritinib. Gilteritinib belongs to a class of drugs called kinase inhibitors. It works by blocking the action of certain enzymes needed for the abnormal cells to multiply and grow, preventing cancer growth.
