Overview

What is Lenvima?

LENVIMA, a kinase inhibitor, is the mesylate salt of lenvatinib. Its chemical name is 4-[3-chloro-4-(’-cyclopropylureido)phenoxy]-7-methoxyquinoline-6-carboxamide methanesulfonate. The molecular formula is CHClNO • CHOS, and the molecular weight of the mesylate salt is 522.96. The chemical structure of lenvatinib mesylate is:

Lenvatinib mesylate is a white to pale reddish yellow powder. It is slightly soluble in water and practically insoluble in ethanol (dehydrated). The dissociation constant (pKa value) of lenvatinib mesylate is 5.05 at 25°C. The partition coefficient (log P value) is 3.30.

Each 4 mg or 10 mg capsule of lenvatinib is equivalent to 4.90 mg or 12.25 mg of lenvatinib mesylate. Following are inactive ingredients: Calcium Carbonate, USP; Mannitol, USP; Microcrystalline Cellulose, NF; Hydroxypropyl Cellulose, NF; Low-substituted Hydroxypropyl Cellulose, NF; and Talc, USP. The hypromellose capsule shell contains titanium dioxide, ferric oxide yellow, and ferric oxide red. The printing ink contains shellac, black iron oxide, potassium hydroxide, and propylene glycol.

How should I use Lenvima?

LENVIMA is indicated for the treatment of patients with locally recurrent or metastatic, progressive, radioactive iodine-refractory DTC. 

The recommended daily dose of LENVIMA is 24 mg (two 10 mg capsules and one 4 mg capsule) orally taken once daily with or without food . Continue LENVIMA until disease progression or until unacceptable toxicity.

Take LENVIMA at the same time each day.  If a dose is missed and cannot be taken within 12 hours, skip that dose and take the next dose at the usual time of administration.

None.


What might happen if I take too much Lenvima?

There is no specific antidote for overdose with LENVIMA. Due to the high plasma protein binding, lenvatinib is not expected to be dialyzable . Adverse reactions in patients receiving single doses of LENVIMA as high as 40 mg were similar to the adverse events reported in the clinical studies at the recommended dose for DTC and RCC.

Clinical Pharmacology

Lenvatinib is a receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) inhibitor that inhibits the kinase activities of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors VEGFR1 (FLT1), VEGFR2 (KDR), and VEGFR3 (FLT4). Lenvatinib also inhibits other RTKs that have been implicated in pathogenic angiogenesis, tumor growth, and cancer progression in addition to their normal cellular functions, including fibroblast growth factor (FGF) receptors FGFR1, 2, 3, and 4; the platelet derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRα), KIT, and RET.  The combination of lenvatinib and everolimus showed increased antiangiogenic and antitumor activity as demonstrated by decreased human endothelial cell proliferation, tube formation, and VEGF signaling in vitro and tumor volume in mouse xenograft models of human renal cell cancer greater than each drug alone.  

Non-Clinical Toxicology
None.

Prior administration of succinylcholine may enhance the neuromuscular blocking effect of vecuronium and its duration of action. If succinylcholine is used before vecuronium, the administration of vecuronium should be delayed until the succinylcholine effect shows signs of wearing off. With succinylcholine as the intubating agent, initial doses of 0.04 to 0.06 mg/kg of vecuronium may be administered to produce complete neuromuscular block with clinical duration of action of 25 to 30 minutes (see ).

The use of vecuronium before succinylcholine, in order to attenuate some of the side effects of succinylcholine, has not been sufficiently studied.

Other nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents (pancuronium, d-tubocurarine, metocurine, and gallamine) act in the same fashion as does vecuronium; therefore, these drugs and vecuronium, may manifest an additive effect when used together. There are insufficient data to support concomitant use of vecuronium and other competitive muscle relaxants in the same patient.

In Study 1 in DTC, hypertension was reported in 73% of LENVIMA-treated patients and 16% of patients in the placebo group . The median time to onset of new or worsening hypertension was 16 days for LENVIMA-treated patients. The incidence of Grade 3 hypertension was 44% as compared to 4% for placebo, and the incidence of Grade 4 hypertension was less than 1% in LENVIMA-treated patients and none in the placebo group. 

In Study 2 in RCC, hypertension was reported in 42% of patients in the LENVIMA + everolimus-treated group and 10% of patients in the everolimus-treated group. The median time to onset of new or worsening hypertension was 35 days for LENVIMA + everolimus-treated patients.  The incidence of Grade 3 hypertension was 13% in the LENVIMA + everolimus-treated group as compared to 2% in the everolimus-treated group. Systolic blood pressure ≥ 160mmHg occurred in 29% and 21% of patients had a diastolic blood pressure ≥100 in the LENVIMA + everolimus-treated group  .

Serious complications of poorly controlled hypertension, including aortic dissection, have been reported.

Control blood pressure prior to treatment with LENVIMA. Monitor blood pressure after 1 week, then every 2 weeks for the first 2 months, and then at least monthly thereafter during treatment with LENVIMA. Withhold LENVIMA for Grade 3 hypertension despite optimal antihypertensive therapy; resume at a reduced dose when hypertension is controlled at less than or equal to Grade 2. Discontinue LENVIMA for life-threatening hypertension  .
