Lenvatinib (E7080) is an inhibitor of multiple RTK with IC50 values of 22nM, 4nM, 5.2nM, 39nM and 35nM on VEGFR-1, VEGFR-2, VEGFR-3, PDGFRβ and RET, respectively [1].

Lenvatinib is presently under investigation both as monotherapy and in combination with cytotoxic agents for multiple types of solid tumor, including thyroid carcinoma and hepatocellular carcinoma (in Phase III trials), and melanoma, renal carcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, glioblastoma multiforme, and ovarian and endometrial carcinoma (Phase I and II trials) [1].

When used as an inhibitor of RET kinase, Lenvatinib cause growth inhibition in TPC-1 cells and LC-2/ad cells. The GI50 values are 27nM and 48nM. It is also reported that Lenvatinib can inhibit RET (rearranged during transfection) gene fusion kinases, and inhibit oncogenic signaling of RET gene fusions. Lenvatinib has been demonstrated to exert antitumor activities in RET gene fusion-driven tumor models [2].

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is > 21.4 mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 °C for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below - 20 °C for several months.

Reacting condition

0 ~ 10 μM; 72 hrs


In HUVECs stimulated with VEGF and VEGF-C, Lenvatinib strongly inhibited VEGF-R2 and VEGF-R3 with the IC50 values of 0.83 nM and 0.36 nM, respectively. In addition, E7080 showed stronger inhibitory activity against VEGF-induced proliferation of HUVECs (IC50 = 2.7 nmol/L) than basic FGF-induced proliferation of HUVECs (IC50 = 410 nM) and PDGF-induced proliferation of L cells (IC50 = 340 nM).

Dosage form

100 mg/kg; p.o.; q.d., for 8 weeks


In nude mice bearing MDA-MB-231 cells, E7080 significantly inhibited tumor growth, with a RTV value of 0.81 ± 1.00. E7080 also markedly inhibited metastasis to regional lymph nodes and distant lung. In addition, E7080 reduced angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis within metastatic nodules in lymph nodes of MDA-MB-231 xenograft models.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.
