On May 13,lenvatinib Lenvima was approved for use in combination with everolimus Afinitor in the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma following one prior antiangiogenic therapy. Median progression-free survival was The treatment effect was supported by a retrospective independent radiographic review, which yielded a hazard ratio of 0.
The hazard ratio for a post-hoc, updated comparison of overall survival between the lenvatinib plus everolimus vs everolimus group was 0. Comparison between the lenvatinib and everolimus monotherapy groups supported the activity of lenvatinib.
The combination showed numerically superior progression-free survival, objective response rate, and overall survival vs lenvatinib monotherapy. There was no prespecified plan for multiple comparisons.
The combination of lenvatinib and everolimus exhibited 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 carcinoma greater than that observed with each drug alone.
How It Is Used The recommended dose of lenvatinib is 18 mg in combination with 5 mg of everolimus orally once daily until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
The recommended starting dose of lenvatinib is 10 mg in patients with severe renal or hepatic impairment.

The recommended dose of lenvatinib is 18 mg in combination with 5 mg of everolimus orally once daily. For first, second, and third occurrences of persistent and intolerable grade 2 or grade 3 adverse reactions or grade 4 laboratory abnormalities, treatment should be interrupted until resolution to grade 0 or 1 or baseline.
Then treatment can be resumed, successively, at 14, 10, and 8 mg daily. Everolimus labeling must be reviewed for dose modifications. For toxicities thought to be related to everolimus alone, the drug should be discontinued, interrupted, or used on alternate days.
For toxicities considered to be related to both lenvatinib and everolimus, the lenvatinib dose should be reduced first. Food and Drug Administration: Lenvatinib in combination with everolimus.
