What is cabozantinib and how does it work?
Cometriq (cabozantinib) is a cancer medicine indicated for the treatment of patients with progressive, metastatic medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) . The active substance in Cometriq, cabozantinib, is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. It blocks the activity of enzymes known as tyrosine kinases. These enzymes can be found in certain receptors in cancer cells where they activate several processes including cell division and the growth of new blood vessels to supply the cancer. By blocking the activity of these receptors in cancer cells, the medicine reduces the growth and spread of the cancer .
for progressive, metastatic medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) . The approvals were based on a study involving 330 adults with medullary thyroid cancer that could not be treated with surgery, where the cancer was extensive or had spread to other parts of the body. The main measure of effectiveness was progression-free survival (how long the patients lived before their disease got worse): in patients given Cometriq (cabozantinib) this was 11.2 months, compared with 4.0 months in those given placebo . Results also showed that 27 % of patients treated with Cometriq (cabozantinib) had reductions in tumour size lasting an average of nearly 15 months, while patients who received a placebo saw no reductions. Treatment with Cometriq (cabozantinib) did not extend patients’ lives . There are some warnings and precautions associated with Cometriq (cabozantinib). Two of these are the occurrence of gastrointestinal perforations and fistulas, and haemorrhage. See the prescribing information for a complete list .
