Afinitor (Everolimus)    is  used to treat a certain type of advanced breast cancer that has already been treated with at least one other medication. Afinitor (Everolimus)    is also used to treat a certain type of cancer of the pancreas that has spread or progressed and that cannot be treated with surgery

Mechanism of action:

Afinitor (Everolimus) is a mTOR inhibitor that binds with high affinity to the FK506 binding protein-12 (FKBP-12), thereby forming a drug complex that inhibits the activation of mTOR. This inhibition reduces the activity of effectors downstream, which leads to a blockage in the progression of cells from G1 into S phase, and subsequently inducing cell growth arrest and apoptosis. Afinitor (Everolimus)   also inhibits the expression of hypoxia-inducible factor, leading to a decrease in the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor. The result of Afinitor (Everolimus)   inhibition of mTOR is a reduction in cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and glucose uptake.
