The effect of food on the oral bioavailability of sunitinib malate (SU11248, an oral, multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor with anti-angiogenic and anti-tumor activities) was assessed in a randomized open-label, two-way crossover study. A 50-mg dose of SU11248 was administered to 16 healthy subjects after a 10-h fast in one period and after a high-fat, high-calorie meal in the other period. The 90% confidence intervals (CIs) for maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) and area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) were within the 80-125% bioequivalence range, indicating the absence of a food effect. SU11248 exposure increased slightly in the fed compared with the fasted state (ratios of fed/fasted geometric least square means: Cmax 104%, AUC0-last and AUC0-infinity both 112%). There was a delay in the formation/absorption of the active metabolite SU12662 in the fed state (mean Cmax decreased 23%), but exposure remained unaffected (90% CIs for AUC0-last and AUC0-infinity were within 80-125%). These results indicate that SU11248 can be administered with or without food.
