Poziotinib is designed to be small and flexible. EGFR and HER2 are part of a larger family of receptors. The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) family of proteins comprise the structurally related receptors EGFR, HER2, HER3, and HER4. Members with kinase domains, like EGFR, are activated upon ligand binding and dimerization - either with another EGFR, or with other members such as HER2.

Poziotinib is an investigational drug not approved by the FDA.


In pre-clinical models of cancer, poziotinib was shown to inhibit kinase activity of EGFR and HER2 with exon 20 insertion mutations, inhibiting proliferation, leading to cancer cell death.
