FDA-approved LENVIMA is an oral therapy that helps block tumor growth in certain types of cancer.
Understanding what LENVIMA is can help you in your journey. LENVIMA is a signal-blocking oral drug called a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI).
How LENVIMA is thought to work
Cancer cells send out signals that tell the body to make more blood vessels
The cancer uses these new blood vessels to grow and spread
LENVIMA helps block these signals by targeting certain proteins on cancer cells that cause the cells to grow and multiply. As a result, LENVIMA helps prevent tumors from growing and spreading
Healthy cells also contain these proteins and may be affected by LENVIMA. This can sometimes cause serious side effects
Financial assistance programs are
available to help appropriate
patients access LENVIMA.
