Characteristics of Patients With ROS1+ Cancers: Results From the First Patient-Designed, Global, Pan-Cancer ROS1 Data Repository

4 views | Dec 30 2019

This study is the first global, patient-designed approach, to our knowledge, to comprehensively assess demographic, clinical, and environmental characteristics associated with ROS1+ cancers. [Read the Full Post]

Highly accurate DNA-based detection and treatment results of MET exon 14 skipping mutations in lung cancer

7 views | Dec 27 2019

Pruis MA et al. showed that METex14del can be reliably detected by routine DNA NGS analysis. [Read the Full Post]

The Potent ALK Inhibitor Brigatinib (AP26113) Overcomes Mechanisms of Resistance to First- and Second-Generation ALK Inhibitors in Preclinical Models

73 views | Nov 02 2019

Zhang S et al. provided the molecular basis for the promising activity being observed in ALK+, crizotinib-resistant patients with NSCLC being treated with brigatinib in clinical trials. [Read the Full Post]

Phase I Study of Ceritinib (LDK378) in Japanese Patients with Advanced, Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase-Rearranged Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer or Other Tumors

69 views | Oct 16 2019

Nishio M et al. indicated that ceritinib maximum-tolerated dose was 750 mg once daily in Japanese patients. Antitumor activity was observed irrespective of prior ALKi treatment history. Dose expansion, examining the activity of ceritinib in alectinib-resistant patients, is ongoing. [Read the Full Post]

Brief Report: Rapid Acquisition of Alectinib Resistance in ALK-positive Lung Cancer with High Tumor Mutation Burden

89 views | Aug 16 2019

Makimoto G et al. found that high TMB and heterogeneous tumor evolution might be responsible for rapid acquisition of alectinib resistance. [Read the Full Post]

PF-06463922 is a potent and selective next-generation ROS1/ALK inhibitor capable of blocking crizotinib-resistant ROS1 mutations

144 views | Aug 05 2019

Zou HY et al. indicated that PF-06463922 has potential for treating ROS1 fusion-positive cancers, including those requiring agents with CNS-penetrating properties, as well as for overcoming crizotinib resistance driven by ROS1 mutation. [Read the Full Post]

Discovery of Brigatinib (AP26113), a Phosphine Oxide-Containing, Potent, Orally Active Inhibitor of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase

230 views | Jun 12 2019

Huang WS et al. showed that brigatinib represents the most clinically advanced phosphine oxide-containing drug candidate to date and is currently being evaluated in a global phase 2 registration trial. [Read the Full Post]

NK92-CD16 cells are cytotoxic to non-small cell lung cancer cell lines that have acquired resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors

209 views | Jun 08 2019

Park HR et al. suggested that combinational treatment with NK cell-based immunotherapy and cetuximab may be promising for patients with TKI-resistant NSCLC. [Read the Full Post]

Lorlatinib in non-small-cell lung cancer with ALK or ROS1 rearrangement: an international, multicentre, open-label, single-arm first-in-man phase 1 trial

194 views | May 07 2019

Shaw AT et al. indicated lorlatinib might be an effective therapeutic strategy for patients with ALK-positive NSCLC who have become resistant to currently available TKIs, including second-generation ALK TKIs, and is being investigated in a phase 3 randomised controlled trial comparing lorlatinib to crizotinib (ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT03052608).

Favorable predictors for survival in advanced ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer patients beyond crizotinib resistance

209 views | Apr 24 2019

Xu H et al. found that long PFS with crizotinib (≥10.4 months), intracranial progression, and use of next-generation ALK inhibitors might be favorable predictors for OS in advanced ALK-positive NSCLC patients. [Read the Full Post]
