This drug had got the FDA approval in June 2018, and it is currently available in the market. This drug is given as an intravenous (IV) infusion every 3 weeks. Currently, there are several ongoing clinical trials meant for examining different drugs and their combinations in uterine cancer, including a combination of two immunotherapies, such as lenvatinib (Lenvima) and pembrolizumab.
