Abstract Sunitinib is an orally-administered, multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor. The main targets are vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR)-1, VEGFR-2, VEGFR-3, platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR)-α, and PDGFR-β. Among therapeutic targeting agents, it is the best available in the USA for patients with metastatic renal cell cancer (RCC). Well-constructed clinical trials have led to the worldwide approval of various agents for RCC. However, in clinical practice, it remains difficult to determine the best treatment strategy with these agents. Therefore, the identification of biomarkers to predict response and side-effects and to select optimal dosages is urgently needed. Potential mechanisms of action and resistance need to be understood in order to make accurate predictions. This article briefly reviews candidate biomarkers of sunitinib therapy in terms of clinical variables, genetic factors, and circulating proteins and endothelial cells. Although further validation and implementation is necessary, if validated, biomarkers will help measure the therapeutic response in individual patients and establish treatment strategies for metastatic RCC. © 2011 Japanese Cancer Association.
