Alimta®: History And Development Of This Anti-Cancer Drug

Alimta® (pemetrexed for injection) was the first chemotherapy drug in history that was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the purpose of treating malignant pleural mesothelioma patients who were not able to undergo surgery safely.

Developed in 2000 and approved by the FDA in 2004, Alimta® has consistently proven to be an effective treatment for mesothelioma patients. Numerous studies have indicated that Alimta® has the potential to extend patients’ survival times and improve their quality of life while dealing with the symptoms of mesothelioma.
