Foretinib is an experimental drug candidate for the treatment of cancer.[1] It was discovered by Exelixis and is under development by GlaxoSmithKline.[2] About 10 Phase II clinical trials have been run.[3] As of October 2015 no phase III trials are registered.[3]

Foretinib is an inhibitor of the kinase enzymes c-Met and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2).[4]
