Sutent is a brand name cancer-fighting medication containing the generic ingredient sunitinib, prescribed for the treatment of cancer of the stomach and bowels, kidneys or pancreas.
Doctors prescribe Sutent to treat three types of cancer. Gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) is a cancer of the stomach and bowels. Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour (pancreatic NET) is a rare cancer of the pancreas. Sutent is also prescribed for kidney cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.
In cancerous cells, enzymes called tyrosine kinases make the cells grow and replicate abnormally. Tyrosine kinases also stimulate the growth of new blood vessels which feed the cancer cells with oxygen and nutrients. Sutent works by specifically targeting the activity of these enzymes and helps to stop the cancer cells from growing.
Sutent can be taken with or without food, but never with grapefruit juice because this may increase the amount of medicine in the blood. Your doctor will prescribe the daily dosage depending on your type of cancer. Sutent capsules are taken orally once per day for a period of time that your doctor specifies.
These may not be all the side effects of Sutent 25mg.
Do not take this medication if you are pregnant. You should not take this medication if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients in Sutent.
Before taking Sutent, tell your doctor if you have any problems with your heart, thyroid, liver, kidney, adrenal glands or muscles. Let your doctor know if you have high blood pressure, pain in your mouth or bleeding problems.
It is best to store Sutent capsules in the original package at room temperature. Discard after the expiry date. Keep out of reach of children.
Cancer refers to an abnormal growth of cells anywhere in the body including breast, skin, colon or prostate. Tumours are groups of abnormal cells that form lumps. Precancerous cells are abnormal and can develop into cancer if they are not treated. Malignant tumours are cancerous and can invade nearby tissues, blood vessels or lymphatic vessels. Cancer cells can “metastasize” or break off and spread to distant parts of the body. Symptoms vary depending on the type of cancer but may include unexplained weight loss, fever, fatigue, pain and skin changes. The most common treatments for cancer are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
