The Emerging Role of Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors in Ovarian Cancer Treatment: A Systematic Review



abstract:  Cancer Investigation

The present systematic review summarizes current evidence regarding the mechanisms of action, the efficacy, and the adverse effects of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in ovarian cancer patients. Phase II and III clinical trials were sought in the PubMed database and in the Clinical Trials.gov registry through September 30, 2015. Seventy-five clinical trials regarding TKIs targeting mainly vascular endothelial growth factor receptor, epidermal growth factor receptor, platelet-derived growth factor receptor, and sarcoma tyrosine kinase (Src) were yielded. The most promising results were noted with cediranib, nintedanib, and pazopanib. However, drawing universal conclusions about the potential integration of TKIs in ovarian cancer therapy remains elusive. Furthermore, emerging challenges and directions for the future research are critically discussed.
