Panitumumab (Vectibix®) is a medication that is available by prescription only. It is approved for treating a type of colorectal cancer that has a certain protein called epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) on the surface of the cancer cells. Panitumumab works by binding to this protein, which helps slow down the growth of the cancer cells. A healthcare provider will administer the drug using an intravenous (IV) infusion every 14 days.
