Active Ingredient History
Vandetanib, 4-anilinoquinazoline, is an anti-cancer drug that with the potential for use in a broad range of tumour types. In 2011 vandetanib (trade name Caprelsa) was approved by the FDA to treat nonresectable, locally advanced, or metastatic medullary thyroid cancer in adult patients. In vitro studies have shown that vandetanib inhibits the tyrosine kinase activity of the EGFR and VEGFR families, RET, BRK, TIE2, and members of the EPH receptor and Src kinase families. These receptor tyrosine kinases are involved in both normal cellular function and pathologic processes such as oncogenesis, metastasis, tumor angiogenesis, and maintenance of the tumor microenvironment. Vandetanib was shown to inhibit epidermal growth factor (EGF)-stimulated receptor tyrosine kinase phosphorylation in tumor cells and endothelial cells and VEGF-stimulated tyrosine kinase phosphorylation in endothelial cells. Vandetanib administration reduced tumor cell-induced angiogenesis, tumor vessel permeability, and inhibited tumor growth and metastasis in mouse models of cancer. NCATS
