  • Publication number: 20140187577
    Abstract: Biomarkers are provided that are predictive of a subject's responsiveness to a therapy comprising lenvatinib or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof (e.g., lenvatinib mesylate). The biomarkers, compositions, and methods described herein are useful in selecting appropriate treatment modalities for a subject having cancer (e.g., thyroid cancer, kidney cancer), suspected of having cancer, or at risk of developing cancer.

  • Publication number: 20140148483
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a method for predicting the effectiveness of an angiogenesis inhibitor in a subject suffering from a tumor. Provided is a method comprising a step of testing for the presence or absence of an a mutation or loss of expression of B-Raf and PTEN in a sample of tumor tissue from the subject. By using the presence or absence of or a mutation or loss of expression of B-Raf and PTEN as an indicator, this method enables the antitumor effectiveness of the angiogenesis inhibitor to be predicted without administering the angiogenesis inhibitor to the subject.
