Summary of "Fruquintinib and its use in the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer."

Fruquintinib is a potent, highly selective and orally active inhibitor of VEGFR1, 2, 3 tyrosine kinases. It inhibits VEGF-induced VEGFR2 phosphorylation, endothelial cell proliferation and tubule formation. Currently, it has been approved for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer in patients who have failed at least two prior systemic antineoplastic therapies in China. However, it is not approved outside China, and there is another similar small molecular VEGFR multitarget drug approved in China, USA, Europe, etc. Here, we summarize the mechanism characteristics and clinical development of fruquintinib supporting its use in the treatment of metastastic colorectal cancer as well as explorations in other tumor types.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.

A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.

An androstene derivative that inhibits STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE and is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant PROSTATE CANCER.
