Substance Name: Ramucirumab [USAN:INN]
RN: 947687-13-0
UNII: D99YVK4L0X

Notes

  • A fully human monoclonal antibody developed to specifically inhibit VEGFR-2.
  • A fully human monoclonal antibody developed to specifically inhibit VEGFR-2.

    NCI: A recombinant, fully human monoclonal antibody directed against human vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2) with antiangiogenesis activity. Ramucirumab specifically binds to and inhibits VEGFR-2, which may result in an in inhibition of tumor angiogenesis and a decrease in tumor nutrient supply. VEGFR-2 is a pro-angiogenic growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase expressed by endothelial cells. (NCI Thesaurus)
