Cabometyx / Cometriq

Exelixis, Inc.

Drug Names(s): BMS-907351, XL184, cabozantinib, cabozantinib-s-malate, Cometriq (Thyroid), Cabometyx (Renal)

Description: Cabozantinib inhibits the hepatocyte growth factor receptor MET, RET, and the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 VEGFR2, which are key drivers of tumor growth, metastasis, survival, and angiogenesis. Cabozantinib has also exhibited inhibition of other RTKs that have been implicated in various forms of cancer including mast/stem cell growth factor (KIT), FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (Flt3) and the endothelial cell RTK receptor (Tie-2). In preclinical efficacy studies, cabozantinib has inhibited tumor growth and induced the regression of large tumors in a broad range of human tumor xenograft models including breastcancer, lung cancer and glioma.

Cabozantinib is now approved as two different formulations (capsules and tablets) with separate brand names (Cometriq and Cabometyx). Because of the new formulation, the FDA considered the New Drug Application (NDA) in renal cell carcinoma as a separate NDA filing from the initial NDA filing in thyroid cancer. As such, we have added both brand names to this drug profile. All cabozantinib development will be followed under this one drug profile in BioMedTracker.
