Ameile is a Class 1 innovative drug developed by Hansoh Pharma, and also China's first original third-generation EGFR-TKI. In March 2020, the first indication of Ameile was approved for marketing, filling the gap of third-generation EGFR-TKI in China; in December 2021, Ameile was approved as first-line therapy for adult patients with EGFR exon 19 deletion or exon 21 (L858R) substitution mutation-positive locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC; on January 18, 2023, Ameile was included in the new National Reimbursement Drug List for the benefit of more lung cancer patients.
Since its approval for marketing, Ameile has rapidly entered medical institutions and pharmacies at all levels nationwide and has been widely used in clinical practice, benefiting more than 200,000 NSCLC patients and winning unanimous praise from doctors and patients for its excellent efficacy and safety. On the first implementation day of the new National Reimbursement Drug List, Ameile was prescribed as a reimbursable drug for first-line treatment in a number of hospitals across China.
