Infigratinib Phosphate

Placeholder slot
 (IN-fig-RA-tih-nib FOS-fayt)

Infigratinib phosphate works by blocking the activity of abnormal FGFR2 proteins that signal cancer cells to divide. This keeps cancer cells from growing and may kill them. It may also prevent the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. Infigratinib phosphate is a type of targeted therapy drug called a kinase inhibitor. It is a small-molecule drug (a drug that can enter cells easily).
