About BAY 73-4506 (DAST-Inhibitor)

BAY 73-4506 is a novel oral multi-kinase inhibitor with a kinase inhibition profile targeting angiogenic, stromal and oncogenic receptor tyrosine kinases (TK). BAY 73-4506 has been shown to inhibit tumor growth in preclinical models by hitting targets along a spectrum of angiogenic pathways, including VEGFR and TIE2. BAY 73-4506 has also been shown to prevent the proliferation of tumor cell lines while promoting apoptosis (cell death) by directly targeting several oncogenic TK receptors. The mechanism may offer promise to treat a broad spectrum of tumors.
