Sutent Tab is an anti-cancer medication. It works by binding and blocking certain cell surface protein (tyrosine kinase) responsible for the propagation of cancer growth. It also restricts the growth of new blood vessels within the tumour. This is how it prevents the proliferation of malignant cancers.
Sutent Tab Capsule is used in the treatment of kidney cancer and gastrointestinal stromal tumour.
Sutent Tab Capsule is used to treat kidney cancer and its associated symptoms such as blood in the urine, unexplained low back pain or weight loss, fatigue, loss of appetite, etc. It stops cancer growth and prevents multiplication of cancer cells.
A gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) is a type of tumour that occurs most commonly in the stomach or small intestine. The tumour develops into the specialized cells called interstitial cells of Cajal (ICCs). Sutent Capsule helps to kill the cancer cells and also stops their further growth and spread.
