How SUTENT works

For more than 10 years, SUTENT has been a widely used therapy in the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and certain patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumor, or GIST.* In clinical trials, SUTENT was shown to help slow the spread of cancer. SUTENT works by blocking 2 processes that help these kinds of cancers grow and spread: proliferation and angiogenesis. SUTENT may also help shrink some tumors. SUTENT is not a cure, may not work the same in every person, and not all patients will experience the same results.

SUTENT blocks angiogenesis

Angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels. This occurs in healthy organs. When angiogenesis occurs in tumors, these blood vessels are abnormal and contribute to tumor growth.
