Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖

|Summary of Clinical Use|
|Tivozanib was approved by the EMA in 2017, and it is also approved for use in Norway and Iceland. It is not FDA approved. Tivozanib is indicated as a first line treatment of adult patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and for adult patients who are VEGFR and mTOR pathway inhibitor-naïve following disease progression after one prior treatment with cytokine therapy for advanced RCC.

A press release from the drug's developer Aveo Oncology, announced that the FDA would not recommend submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) for tivozanib for RCC with the preliminary overall survival results from the Phase 3 TIVO-3 trial (tivozanib vs sorafenib). Aveo is awaiting more mature overall survival results before making any further NDA filing decisions (as of July 2019).
|Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects|
|Tivozanib selectively inhibits VEGFR activation which suppresses the downstream pro-angiogenic sequelae of VEGF activity at these receptor tyrosine linases.|
