Title The potential of sunitinib as a therapy in ovarian cancer.
Journal Expert opinion on investigational drugs
Vol 22

Abstract Text Sunitinib malate (SU11248; Sutent®; Pfizer, Inc., New York) is a multi-kinase inhibitor currently approved for use in advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), imatinib-resistant/-intolerant gastrointestinal stromal tumours and progressive, well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours in patients with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic disease.This article describes the mechanism of action and of the pharmacokinetics of sunitinib; further, it summarizes Phase I and II trials on the clinical efficacy, tolerability and safety of this agent in the setting of ovarian cancer (OC) treatment.On the basis of the current literature, sunitinib has shown modest antitumour activity and acceptable toxicity. Studies investigating the impact of horizontal and vertical combinations should represent a priority of future research. Although clinical Phase II trials on the use of sunitinib in the treatment of OC demonstrated an acceptable profile of AEs, a greater comprehension of the toxicity of this compound is recommended.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Unknown unknown ovarian cancer not applicable Sunitinib Phase Ib/II Actionable In a Phase II trial, Sutent (sunitinib) treatment in ovarian cancer patients resulted in an increased PFS and a response rate of 16.7% (6/36) in those that received Sutent (sunitinib) continuously and a a response rate of 5.4% (2/37) in those that received the drug non-continuously (PMID: 22377563, PMID: 24070205). 22377563 24070205
