New therapeutic schedules of Sunitinib: Current evidence regarding the 2:1 scheme.

CONCLUSIONS: Despite the still limited amount of data, current evidence supports the use of a 2:1 schedule, as it provides patients substantial advantages because of its better tolerability profile, without a loss in oncological efficacy. Currently, the 2:1 scheme is an appropriate alternative therapeutic strategy, especially in patients with poor tolerance to the standard 4:2 regimen. PMID: 28422035 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Godo S, Yoshida Y, Kawamorita N, Mitsuzuka K, Kawazoe Y, Fujita M, Kudo D, Nomura R, Shimokawa H, Kushimoto S Abstract Axitinib has emerged as a promising antineoplastic agent for the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma. Although the administration of axitinib was well-tolerated in clinical trials, the real-world safety and tolerability remain unverified. We herein report a patient with metastatic renal cell carcinoma who suddenly developed life-threatening hyperkalemia following the initiation of axitinib treatment. Although hyperkalemia has been reported with an incidence of

In conclusion, these results overall suggest that primary tumors showing sensitivity to continuous pazopanib treatment may predict response to this drug when given at high doses intermittently in the context of advanced metastatic disease, that are otherwise resistant to the conventional protocol.
