GIST Support Wiki


Sutent (sunitinib malate, previously known as SU-11248) is a drug used to treat adults with GIST when Gleevec does not stop the cancer from growing or when Gleevec cannot be taken. Sutent was approved in January 2006 by the FDA for use against gastrointestinal stromal tumor resistant to Gleevec (imatinib) or patients who are intolerant of Gleevec.
