Gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST)
Sutent is indicated for the treatment of unresectable and/or metastatic malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) in adults after failure of imatinib treatment due to resistance or intolerance.
Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (MRCC)
Sutent is indicated for the treatment of advanced/metastatic renal cell carcinoma (MRCC) in adults.
Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (pNET)
Sutent is indicated for the treatment of unresectable or metastatic, well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (pNET) with disease progression in adults.
For GIST and MRCC, the recommended dose of Sutent is 50 mg taken orally once daily, for 4 consecutive weeks, followed by a 2-week rest period (Schedule 4/2) to comprise a complete cycle of 6 weeks.
For pNET, the recommended dose of Sutent is 37.5 mg taken orally once daily without a scheduled rest period.
For GIST and MRCC, dose modifications in 12.5 mg steps may be applied based on individual safety and tolerability. Daily dose should not exceed 75 mg nor be decreased below 25 mg.
For pNET, dose modification in 12.5 mg steps may be applied based on individual safety and tolerability. The maximum dose administered in the Phase 3 pNET study was 50 mg daily.
Dose interruptions may be required based on individual safety and tolerability.
