Sutent is an oral medication prescribed to stop the growth of cancer cells and reduce the size of tumours in certain types of cancer.
Doctors prescribe Sutent for patients with certain types of cancers. Sutent is used to treat kidney cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, called metastatic renal cell carcinoma (MRCC) and certain cancers of the pancreas called pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (pNET) that are advanced or cannot be removed with surgery. Doctors also prescribe Sutent to treat a cancer of the bowels and stomach called gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) after treatment with imatinib does not work.
Sutent contains the generic ingredient sunitinib which belongs to a class of medications called tyrosine kinase inhibitors. As the name suggests, Sutent interferes with the action of enzymes called tyrosine kinases. In cancerous cells, these enzymes cause abnormal growth and stimulate nourishing blood vessels to grow into the tumour. Sutent works by stopping the growth of cancer cells and the growth of blood vessels, thereby reducing the size of tumours.
Take Sutent capsules orally once daily with or without food. It is important to avoid consuming grapefruit juice while taking Sutent. Your dosage regimen is based on your medical condition. For some conditions, you may be directed to take Sutent daily. For other conditions, you may be instructed to take Sutent for a specific period of time followed by a break.
These may not be all the side effects of Sutent 50mg.
If you have a hypersensitivity to sunitinib or any of the non-medicinal ingredients in the tablet, do not take Sutent. Do not use this medication if you are pregnant.
Discuss your medical history with your doctor especially if you have a heart condition, liver or kidney problems, muscle aches or weakness, thyroid problems or adrenal gland problems. Let your doctor know if you have had a stroke, a history of fainting spells or a recent surgery or injury.

Cancer is caused by the uncontrolled replication of abnormal cells and can occur in various parts of the body. There are many different types of cancer which can start in the lungs, breast, colon or even in the blood. Certain cancers grow fast while others grow slowly. Some cancers respond better to chemotherapy while other types are best treated with surgery. The type of treatment also depends on the stage of cancer, such as stage 1 or stage 2, which refers to how much the cancer has progressed. Depending on the type of cancer, symptoms vary but may include fatigue, pain and skin changes, fever or unexplained weight loss. In the United States, statistics show that progress has been made against the disease although much work remains. The overall cancer death rate has declined and the number of cancer survivors has increased.
