Nintedanib (BIBF 1120) is an indolinone-derived oral active, triple angiokinase inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR)1-3, fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR)1-3 and platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR)α/β1. It has shown potent antiangiogenic activity at nanomolar (IC50, 20-100 nmol/L) by blocking these receptor-mediated signaling pathways1,2. Nintedanib (BIBF 1120) is in clinical development for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis as these receptors have been shown to be potentially involved in the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis3,4. As a novel angiogenesis inhibitor, it is also being widely evaluated in different cancer models and has displayed significant anti-tumor activities by inhibiting tumor blood vessel formation5-7.

To further evaluate its antitumor effects on multiple tumors, Nintedanib is currently entering several clinical trials, including non-small cell lung cancer8, ovarian cancer6, colorectal cancer7, hepatocellular carcinoma9 and many other solid tumors. In addition, the possibilities of combining Nintedanib therapy with other treatments such as docetaxel10 and afatinib 11are being tested in different tumor models. The most common drug-related adverse events in patients were diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and lethargy7.
