MGCD516 (Sitravatinib), is an oral, potent small molecule inhibitor of a closely related spectrum of RTKs including RET, the split RTKs (VEGFR, PDGFR and KIT), TRK family, DDR2, MET and AXL[1]. MGCD516 treatment resulted in significant blockade of phosphorylation of potential driver RTKs and induced potent anti-proliferative effects in vitro[2].

In vivo Sitravatinib has demonstrated antitumor activity in nonclinical cancer models harboring genetic alterations of sitravatinib targets, including rearrangement of RET, NTRK, or CHR4q12 amplification[1]. MGCD516 treatment of tumor xenografts in vivo resulted in significant suppression of tumor growth. Efficacy of MGCD516 was superior to imatinib and crizotinib, two other well-studied multi-kinase inhibitors with overlapping target specificities, both in vitro and in vivo[2].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:


  • Cell lines: DDLS, LS141 and MPNST
  • Concentrations: 62.5, 125, 250, 500, 1000, 2000 nM/L
  • Incubation Time: 72 h
  • Method:

    2,000-3,000 cells were plated in 96-well plates in RPMI/DME media with 10% FBS and then treated with the indicated drugs the next day. After 72 hours, media was replaced with 100 μL of media with 10% serum and 10% CCK-8 solution. After 1 hour, the optical density was read at 450 nm to determine viability. Background values from negative control wells without cells were subtracted for final sample quantification. Data was plotted as % cell viability compared to DMSO control. IC50 was extrapolated from cell viability data using CompuSyn software according to the manufacturer's instructions

Animal Research:


  • Animal Models: ICR/SCID mice
  • Dosages: 15 mg/kg
  • Administration: p.o.

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
