ChEBI: A hydrate that is the monohydrate of dasatinib. It is used for the treatment of chronic, accelerated, or myeloid or lymphoid blast phase chronic myeloid leukemia. Note that the name 'dasatinib' is used to refer to the monohydrate (USAN) as well as to anhyd
ous dasatinib (INN).

chronic myeloid leukemia (cml) is a disease characterized by the presence of the philadelphia (ph+) chromosome and its oncogenic product, bcr-abl, that is present in >90% of the patients. dasatinib (bms-354825) is a novel, potent, and multitargeted kinase inhibitor that targets abl, src, kit, pdgfr, and other tyrosine kinases.
dasatinib is a potent atp-competitive inhibitor in biochemical assays with broad-spectrum antiproliferative activities against hematological and solid tumor cell lines. dasatinib was more potent than imatinib at inhibiting nonmutated bcr-abl kinase activity. in addition, the kinase activity of 14 out of 15 different clinically relevant, imatinib-resistant bcr-abl isoforms was successfully inhibited .
mice were dosed with dasatinib or vehicle alone by gavage for 2 weeks, beginning 3 days after injection of ba/f3 cells. all vehicle-treated mice developed progressive disease. in contrast, dasatinib–treated mice harboring nonmutant bcr-abl or the clinically common imatinib-resistant mutation m351t appeared healthy with no evidence of weight loss, lethargy, or ruffled fur and showed more than one log lower levels of bioluminescent activity after 2 weeks of therapy .
