Member of a class of drugs called "mTOR inhibitors". mTOR, (mammalian Target Of Rapamycin) is a cell-signaling protein that regulates the response of tumor cells to nutrients and growth factors, as well as controlling tumor blood supply through effects on Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor, VEGF. mTOR inhibitors starve cancer cells and shrink tumors by inhibiting the effect of mTOR.
