Bosutinib Monohydrate (伯舒替尼)
Approved sept4 2012 by FDA
PMDA SEPT26 2014
EMA MAR 27 2013
A kinase inhibitor indicated for the treatment of adult patients with Ph+ chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML).
SKI-606; SK-606
CAS No.380843-75-4 (Free form)
 CAS  918639-08-4(Bosutinib Monohydrate)
Bosutinib (rINN/USAN; codenamed SKI-606, marketed under the trade name Bosulif) is atyrosine kinase inhibitor undergoing research for use in the treatment of cancer. [1] [2]Originally synthesized by Wyeth, it is being developed by Pfizer.

Some commercial stocks of bosutinib (from sources other than the Pfizer material used for clinical trials) have recently been found to have the incorrect chemical structure, calling the biological results obtained with them into doubt.[3]
Bosutinib received US FDA approval on September 5, 2012 for the treatment of adult patients with chronic, accelerated, or blast phase Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+)chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) with resistance, or intolerance to prior therapy.[4][5][6]

Good News For Pfizer’s Orphan Drug Bosulif (Bosutinib) in Europe
January 18, 2013
The European Medicines Agency’s  (EMA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) on January 17, 2013, adopts a positive opinion, recommending a conditional marketing authhorization for Pfizer’s orphan drug Bosulif (Bosutinib) for Chronic Leukemia (CML).  Bosutinib receives orphan designation from the European Commission (EC) on August 4, 2010, for CML.
Pfizer receives FDA approval on September 4, 2012, for orphan drug Bosulif (Bosutinib) for CML. Pfizer receives on February 24, 2009, FDA Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) for Bosutinib for CML.
Per a September 2012 article in  FierceBioTech.com, a Pfizer spokesperson says that “the drug will cost less than $8,200/month”/patient in the US. In other words, treatment will cost approximately $98,400/patient/year. Also per FierceBiotech,“Bosulif is the 3rd new medicine from Pfizer Oncology’s pipeline to be approved by the FDA in just 13 months ….”.

Pfizer’s response to compound fraud spotlights quality issues
