Sunitinib Accord



This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.


Sunitinib Accord is a medicine used to treat adults with the following cancers:

  • gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST), a type of cancer of the stomach and bowel where there is uncontrolled growth of cells in the supporting tissues of these organs. Sunitinib Accord is used in patients with GISTs that cannot be removed with surgery or have spread to other parts of the body. It is used after treatment with imatinib (another cancer medicine) has failed;
  • metastatic renal cell carcinoma, a type of kidney cancer, that has spread to other parts of the body;
  • pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (tumours of the hormone-producing cells in the pancreas) that have spread or cannot be removed with surgery. Sunitinib Accord is used if the disease is getting worse and the tumour cells are well-differentiated (similar to normal cells in the pancreas). 

Sunitinib Accord contains the active substance sunitinib and is a ‘generic medicine’. This means that Sunitinib Accord contains the same active substance and works in the same way as a ‘reference medicine’ already authorised in the EU called Sutent.
