An Explorative Study on the Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Sunitinib in Healthy Volunteers
An Open-label One-way Explorative Study on the Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Sunitinib in Healthy Volunteers

The study is conducted:

  • to investigate the influence of sunitinib (study drug) on the plasma biomarkers VEGF-A, VEGF-C, soluble VEGFR-2, and soluble VEGFR-3 (vessel endothelial growth factors) and on the blood pressure;
  • to generate a pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic model for sunitinib using biomarkers.
