CIMAher® (Nimotozumab) is a humanized monoclonal antibody used to treat head and neck squamous cell carcinomas, recurrent or refractory high-grade malignant gliomas, anaplastic astrocytomas and glioblastomas.

Nimotuzumab binds to a protein called epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), which is found on some types of normal cells and some types of cancer cells. Blocking this protein can help prevent cancer cells from forming.
