Discovered and developed in house by Eisai, LENVIMA is an orally administered kinase inhibitor with a novel binding mode that selectively inhibits the kinase activities of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors (VEGFR1, VEGFR2 and VEGFR3
) and fibroblast growth factor (FGF) receptors (FGFR1, FGFR2, FGFR3 and FGFR4) in addition to other pathway-related RTKs (including the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) receptor PDGFRalpha; KIT; and RET) involved in tumor angiogenesis, tumor progression and modification of tumor immunity.
Lenvima, discovered and developed by Eisai, is a kinase inhibitor that inhibits the kinase activities of vascular endothelial growth factor receptors VEGFR1, VEGFR2, and VEGFR3
LENVIMA is a kinase inhibitor that inhibits the kinase activities of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors VEGFR1 (FLT1), VEGFR2 (KDR) and VEGFR3
NK cell depletion in a transgenic model reduced macrophage numbers in the cornea as well as mRNA expression of VEGF-A, VEGF-C, and VEGFR3
while in a laser-induced corneal neovascularisation model, NK cell depletion leads to a reduction of neovascularisation while significantly downregulating IFN-[gamma] and VEGFs in the choroid .
Anti-VEGF-A treatment reduced both blood and lymphatic vascular densities, decreased VEGFR3
expression in LECs , and reduced metastasis in a breast cancer model .

(8) Coamplification of the FMS-like tyrosine kinase 4 (FLT4) gene encoding the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 3 (VEGFR3
), in association with MYC amplification, was found by Guo et al (10) in 25% of secondary angiosarcomas but not in other radiation-associated, atypical vascular lesions.
Stimulation of lymphangiogenesis via VEGFR3
inhibits chronic skin inflammation.
Correlations between absorbances associated with the serum levels of autoantibodies to VEGFR3
from the indirect ELISA and AST (Figure 2(a)), ALT (Figure 2(b)), TB (Figure 2(c)), and the relative fibrotic area (Figure 2(d)) were performed.
Congenital Hereditary Lymphedema Caused by a Mutation That Inactivates VEGFR3
Fruquintinib is designed to selectively inhibit VEGF receptors, namely VEGFR1, VEGFR2 and VEGFR3
. Angiogenesis is an important mechanism in tumour pathogenesis, and inhibition of VEGF- mediated angiogenesis has been important in the treatment of a variety of cancers.
