Descriptions


Palbociclib is used in combination with letrozole (postmenopausal women) or with fulvestrant (disease progression following hormonal therapy) in patients with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, HER-2 negative advanced metastatic breast cancer. It belongs to the group of medicines called antineoplastics.

Palbociclib interferes with the growth of cancer cells, which are eventually destroyed. Since the growth of normal cells may also be affected by the medicine, other unwanted effects will also occur. Some of these may be serious and must be reported to your doctor.

This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.

This product is available in the following dosage forms:

  • Capsule
