What are Sutent capsules 12.5 mg for cancer (sunitinib malate)?

Sutent capsules comprise sunitinib malate, a malate salt of sunitinib that can be taken orally. Sunitinib belongs to the indolinone-based class of tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Its mechanism involves the suppression of receptors linked to both tumor proliferation and the development of blood vessels within tumors. Furthermore, Sutent capsules hinder the phosphorylation of another receptor tyrosine kinase present in certain leukemic cells.

The primary purpose of Sutent capsules is the management of specific types of cancer. They demonstrate effectiveness in treating well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors that are either unresectable or metastatic and have shown disease progression in adults. Notably, Sutent stands as the sole alternative to imatinib for patients with imatinib-resistant gastrointestinal stromal tumors. By significantly diminishing the relative risk of disease progression or mortality linked to this condition, Sutent capsules play a crucial role.

Additionally, this medication exhibits efficacy in addressing radically unresectable or metastatic renal cell carcinoma. It brings about tumor reduction, leading to the extension of the lives of patients with metastases and enhancing their overall quality of life.
