Polo like kinase Plk 1

Polo-like kinase (Plk) is an important cell cycle regulatory kinase that has been implicated in a multitude of cell cycle events. Plks form a family of four different proteins that regulates many as...

MAP kinase kinase MEK Inhibitors

The mitogen activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are conserved proteins that regulate cell growth, division and death.  The MAPK pathway has emerged as the crucial route between membrane-bound Ras...

Bcr Abl and Src Kinase Inhibitors

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is characterized by the presence of the Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome, which results from a reciprocal translocation between the long arms of the chromosomes 9 and 22 t...

Checkpoint kinase 1 CHK 1

Progression through the cell cycle is monitored by surveillance mechanisms known as cell cycle checkpoints. Dysfunction in cell cycle checkpoints leads to genomic instability and contributes to tumo...

Kinases Raf Inhibitors

The Ras-Raf-MEK-ERK (ERK) pathway is a logical therapeutic target because it represents a common downstream pathway for several key growth factor tyrosine kinase receptors which are often mutated or...

'Weeding the garden' lets anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive lung cancer patients continue crizotinib

Patients taking crizotinib for anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive non-small cell lung cancer may safely and durably use up to three courses of targeted radiation therapy to eradicate pockets of drug-...

NSCLC gene fusion testing, targeted crizotinib – not yet cost effective

Genomic fusion testing for echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like 4 and anaplastic lymphoma kinase genes plus targeted first-line crizotinib is not a cost effective treatment strategy for pati...

New crizotinib side-effect: Reduced measures of kidney function during treatment (recovery after)

A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published today in the journal Cancer shows that using crizotinib to treat ALK positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) appears to reduce kidney functio...

Novartis' Lead Ceritinib Could Capture Market Share From Pfizer

By Daniel Firl:A 21 Center Phase I Clinical Trial of Ceritinib (LDK378), Novartis A.G. (NVS), published its findings of patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in the New England Jou...

Crizotinib Not Cost-Effective, Says Canadian Study

Costly targeted therapies like crizotinib are changing cancer care, but can patients and healthcare systems afford to pay for them? Medscape Medical News

ALK Inhibition With Crizotinib in Advanced NSCLC

Does NSCLC treatment with crizotinib yield clinical benefit -- for patients who are beyond progressive disease? Annals of Oncology

New side-effect of crizotinib for ALK positive NSCLC

A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published in the journal Cancer shows that using crizotinib to treat ALK positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) appears to reduce kidney function when...

Phase 1 trial finds ceritinib suppresses growth of both crizotinib-resistant and crizotinib-sensitive lung tumors with manageable side effects

Although the targeted cancer treatment drug crizotinib is very effective in causing rapid regression of a particular form of lung cancer, patients' tumors inevitably become resistant to the drug. Now...

The design of potent and selective inhibitors to overcome clinical ALK mutations resistant to crizotinib.

Crizotinib (1), an ALK receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor approved by the FDA in 2011, is efficacious in ALK and ROS positive patients. Under pressure of crizotinib treatment, point mutations arise in...

Crizotinib: A comprehensive review.

Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene rearrangements are present in a small subset of non-small-cell lung cancers. ALK-positivity confers sensitivity to small-molecule ALK kinase inhibitors, such as c...

Managing treatment-related adverse events associated with Alk inhibitors.

Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangements have been identified as key oncogenic drivers in a small subset of non-small-cell lung cancers (nsclcs). Small-molecule Alk kinase inhibitors such as cr...

Ability of the Met Kinase Inhibitor Crizotinib and New Generation EGFR Inhibitors to Overcome Resistance to EGFR Inhibitors.

Although EGF receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKI) have shown dramatic effects against EGFR mutant lung cancer, patients ultimately develop resistance by multiple mechanisms. We therefore ass...

Fishing for ALK with immunohistochemistry may predict response to crizotinib.

Background. ALK (anaplastic lymphoma kinase) gene rearrangement is a novel oncogenic driver in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) against which a selective inhibitor, namely crizotinib, is effective....
