Sunitinib or Everolimus First-Line for Kidney Cancer?

A phase 2 randomized comparator trial has found that first-line everolimus is not as effective as first-line sunitinib, and has a different toxicity profile. Medscape Medical News

Sunitinib malate (Sutent) for renal cell carcinoma – adjuvant therapy

Sunitinib malate (Sutent) is an oral small-molecule inhibitor with selectivity for platelet-derived growth factor receptors (PDGFRα and PDGFRβ), vascular endothelial growth factor receptors (VEGFR1,...

First-line sunitinib superior to everolimus for metastatic RCC

Results for the RECORD-3 trial support the current strategy of first-line sunitinib followed by second-line everolimus for the treatment of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

Sunitinib-related fatigue occurs early then tails off during RCC treatment

Patients beginning sunitinib treatment for advanced renal cell carcinoma should be warned that fatigue is likely to occur early, but that it is unlikely to worsen over the course of treatment, suggest...

Alternative sunitinib treatment schedules for mRCC may be worth the switch

Some patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma who are switched from a traditional sunitinib treatment schedule to an alternative schedule fare better on survival measures and suffer fewer adverse...

Genetic variants alter chance of sunitinib dose reduction

Scientists have identified genetic variants that reduce the likelihood of sunitinib dose reduction in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

Immature blood vessels linked to poor sunitinib response

Patients with clear-cell renal cell carcinoma with relatively mature blood vessels respond better to sunitinib and have fewer metastatic sites than those with immature vessels, a study has found.
