How does Odomzo work?

Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 10 Mar 2016

Odomzo (generic name: sonidegib) is a cancer medicine that is used to treat basal cell carcinoma (a type of skin cancer).

Odomzo is used when surgery or radiation treatment for the skin cancer cannot be used or have not been successful.

Odomzo is classified as a Hedgehog pathway inhibitor, and helps to block this molecular pathway which is active in basal cell cancers. By suppressing the Hedgehog pathway, Odomzo may stop or slow the growth of cancer lesions.

Odomzo is a pill taken once a day.
