Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 1 Jun 2016

Cometriq and Cabometyx are both kinase inhibitors with the generic name cabozantinib. However, they are used to treat different conditions.

Cometriq is used to treat thyroid cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Cabometyx is approved to treat kidney cancer.

Cometriq is taken by mouth and given as an oral capsule. Cabometyx comes as a tablet.

Cabometyx tablets must not be substituted for the capsule form of cabozantinib (Cometriq), which is a different formulation approved for the treatment of medullary thyroid cancer.
