Resumo: Cediranib is a potent inhibitor of the VEGF family receptor tyrosine kinases, and a new agent in cancer treatment. The drug has shown promising activity in a variety of solid malignancies, in preclinical models and in clinical trials. Its pharmacokinetics allow for a convenient once-daily administration, with a toxicity profile that is very similar to other VEGF inhibitors. Its main side effects include hypertension, nausea, dysphonia, fatigue and diarrhea. Adverse events seem to be manageable, especially when used in doses lower than 45 mg/day. Studies have shown some activity as a single agent or in combination in advanced tumors, but not enough to secure its approval for routine use up to now. Clinical trials are still evaluating the role of cediranib in combination chemotherapy with cytotoxic agents.
