SUTENT Uses

Can Children Use It?

SUTENT is not approved for use in children, as it has not been adequately studied in this age group. Talk to your child's healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of using SUTENT in children.
 

Can Older Adults Use It?

SUTENT can be used in older adults. In clinical trials, the drug was as safe and effective in older adults as it was in younger age groups. However, because of general changes that occur in the body with age, and the greater likelihood that older adults will be taking other medications or have other medical conditions, some older adults may have a higher risk for SUTENT side effects. Therefore, older adults may need more careful monitoring during SUTENT treatment.
 

Off-Label Uses of SUTENT

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for treating something other than advanced renal cell carcinoma. This is called an "off-label" use. SUTENT may be used off-label to treat other types of cancer, such as breast cancer.
