How Does It Work?

Regorafenib works by blocking the action of several kinases. Kinases are naturally occurring proteins in the body that help regulate many functions of cells in the body, including cell growth. Kinases also tell cancer cells to grow and divide. By blocking the action of kinases, regorafenib can slow down or stop the growth of cancer cells.
