FDA approved axitinib use of treating advanced kidney cancer
January 27, 2012, the FDA approved axitinib for the treatment of advanced kidney cancer (renal cell carcinoma) which other drugs unanswer . Inlyta is manufactured and sold by Pfizer,and is a oral pill taken twice a day.
Renal cell carcinoma is a type of tumor originating from the tubular endothelial cells. Axitinib can prevent certain protein called kinases playing a role in tumor growth and metastasis .
