Vatalanib is an inhibitor of VEGFR that is currently in clinical trials for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome, lymphomas, non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs), and other cancers. Vatalanib exhibits anti-angiogenic, anti-metastatic, anticancer chemotherapeutic, and analgesic activities. In animal models with mammary carcinoma allografts, vatalanib decreases tumor vascularization. In animal models of pancreatic carcinoma, vatalanib inhibits tumor growth and metastasis and decreases microvessel density. Additionally, vatalanib decreases chronic neuropathic pain in animal models of chronic constriction injury, as inhibition of VEGFR2 inhibits signaling through neuropathic pain-mediating P2X (2/3) receptors.
