Metastatic Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor; Locally advanced Gastrointestinal stromal tumor; Refractory, metastatic Colorectal cancer; Unresectable Gastrointestinal stromal tumor
Cmax = 2.5 μg/mL; Tmax = 4 hours; AUC = 70.4 μgh/mL; Cmax, steady-state = 3.9 μg/mL; AUC, steady-state = 58.3 μgh/mL; The mean relative bioavailability of tablets compared to an oral solution is 69% to 83%.
Regorafenib is metabolized by CYP3A4 and UGT1A9. The main circulating metabolites of regorafenib measured at steady-state in human plasma are M-2 (N-oxide) and M-5 (N-oxide and N-desmethyl), both of them having similar in vitro pharmacological activity and steady-state concentrations as regorafenib. M-2 and M-5 are highly protein bound (99.8% and 99.95%, respectively).
The most common adverse reactions (≥20%) are asthenia/fatigue, HFSR, diarrhea, decreased appetite/food intake, hypertension, mucositis, dysphonia, and infection, pain (not otherwise specified), decreased weight, gastrointestinal and abdominal pain, rash, fever, and nausea
