What is Midostaurin?Midostaurin

Midostaurin (sold under the name Rydapt) is a multi-targeted protein kinase inhibitor that has been investigated for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and advanced systemic mastocytosis. It is a semi-synthetic derivative of staurosporine, an alkaloid from the bacterium Streptomyces staurosporeus. On April 28, 2017, midostaurin was approved by the FDA for the treatment of adult patients with newly diagnosed AML who are positive for oncogenic FLT3, in combination with chemotherapy. The drug is approved for use with a companion diagnostic, the LeukoStrat CDx FLT3 Mutation Assay, which is used to detect the FLT3 mutation in patients with AML.

Mechanism of Action:

It potently inhibits multiple receptor tyrosine kinases. Midostaurin and its major active metabolites CGP62221 and CGP52421 inhibit the activity of protein kinase C alpha (PKCalpha), VEGFR2, KIT, PDGFR and WT and/or mutant FLT3 tyrosine kinases. Inhibition of FLT3 receptor signalling cascades induces apoptosis of target leukemia cells expressing target receptors and mast cells, in addition to its antiproliferative activity toward multiple cancer cell lines 4. Midostaurin also interacts with organic anion transporter (OATP) 1A1 and multidrug resistance protein (MRP)-2 according to preliminary in vitro studies.


It targets multiple WT and mutated kinases that, when activated, constitutively stimulate aberrant signalling cascades that lead to malignancies such as AML and ASM. Alternative pharmacodynamic effect of midostaurin in prolonging QTc intervals was not clinically significant in patients with advanced SM or AML when compared to placebo. Midostaurin is therapeutically beneficial as a combination therapy for patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Midostaurin Side effects:

Common side effects include immune system related problems (fever, febrile neutropenia), blood clotting problems (bruising, nosebleed), and unspecific symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea and headache. Upper respiratory tract infections can be dangerous.
