Pemazyre (pemigatinib) is a kinase inhibitor used for the treatment of adults with previously treated, unresectable locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) with a fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) fusion or other rearrangement as detected by an FDA-approved test.

Dosage: The recommended dosage of Pemigatinib is 13.5 mg orally once daily for 14 consecutive days followed by 7 days off therapy, in 21-day cycles.
