WHAT IS SORAFENIB ?
Sorafenib works by blocking (inhibiting) signals within the cancer cells that make them grow. Blocking the signals causes the cells to die. Sorafenib can also stop cancer cells developing new blood vessels. This reduces their supply of oxygen and nutrients, so the tumor shrinks or stops growing.
Sorafenib is licensed to treat people with kidney cancer that has spread outside the kidney (advanced or metastatic renal cell cancer) and who are no longer being helped by treatment with interferon alpha (IFN) or interleukin-2 (IL-2), or for whom these drugs are not suitable, liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma) that can’t be removed with surgery and also differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) that is no longer being controlled by radioactive iodine treatment.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF SORAFENIB:
Stop using sorafenib and call your doctor at once if you have:
sudden weight loss, increased appetite, trouble sleeping, increased bowel movements, feeling hot, feeling nervous or anxious, swelling in your neck (goiter);
dangerously high blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision, buzzing in your ears, confusion, uneven heartbeats, seizure); or
severe skin reaction -- fever, sore throat, swelling in your face or tongue, burning in your eyes, skin pain, followed by a red or purple skin rash that spreads (especially in the face or upper body) and causes blistering and peeling.
This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
