What is Cometriq (cabozantinib) for?

Cometriq (cabozantinib) is a cancer medicine indicated for the treatment of patients with progressive, metastatic medullary thyroid cancer (MTC).

How does Cometriq (cabozantinib) work?

The active substance in Cometriq, cabozantinib, is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. It blocks the activity of enzymes known as tyrosine kinases. These enzymes can be found in certain receptors in cancer cells where they activate several processes including cell division and the growth of new blood vessels to supply the cancer. By blocking the activity of these receptors in cancer cells, the medicine reduces the growth and spread of the cancer.
