Fyarro (sirolimus protein-bound particles) is an inhibitor of mechanistic target of rapamycin kinase (mTOR) for the treatment of malignant perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa).

  • Malignant PEComa is a rare and aggressive form of soft-tissue sarcoma. Malignant PEComas have been shown to frequently harbor mutations in the TSC1 and/or TSC2 genes that result in the activation of mTOR pathway. In tumor cells, abnormally activated mTOR sends signals that encourage tumor cells to grow, metastasize, and invade new healthy tissues.
  • Sirolimus works to slow tumor growth by inhibiting mTOR. The sirolimus in Fyarro bound to human albumin to enhance the delivery of the drug into tumor cells.
  • Fyarro is administered as an IV infusion over 30 minutes on Days 1 and 8 of each 21-day cycle until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
  • Fyarro may cause serious adverse reactions including stomatitis, myelosuppression, infections, hypokalemia and hyperglycemia, ILD/non-infectious pneumonitis, hemorrhage, and hypersensitivity reactions.
  • Common adverse reactions include stomatitis, fatigue, rash, infection, nausea, edema, diarrhea, musculoskeletal pain, decreased weight, decreased appetite, cough, vomiting, dysgeusia, and laboratory abnormalities.
