Although most of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with ROS1-fusions respond to crizotinb, acquired resistance eventually develop. The next-generations of ROS1 inhibitors have made some achi...
Oncogenic fusion genes consisting of echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like 4 (EML4) and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) can be detected in 5-7% of lung adenocarcinoma cases. The prevalence o...
Crizotinib was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2011 for the treatment of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)- or ROS1-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Since then, the numbe...
Primary lung adenocarcinoma is extremely rare in the pediatric age group. We report an 18-year-old man with non-small cell lung carcinoma stage IV with brain and bone metastatic. Lung biopsy showed ex...
Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangement gene testing is used increasingly to identify patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who are most likely to benefit from crizotinib. T...
This study will evaluate the efficacy of crizotinib as induction therapy in participants with surgically resectable ALK rearrangement, ROS1 rearrangement, or MET exon 14 mutation positive ...
Lung cancer is the most leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Most of the patients with lung cancer are advanced stage at the time of diagnosis. The two oncogenes that are ...
This study was designed to explore the efficacy and safety of Crizotinib as a first-line treatment for advanced NSCLC with ROS1 rearrangement positive mutation in the real world, explore t...
This is a phase II study assessing response rate to PF-06463922 in patients with ROS1 translocation resistant to previous crizotinib therapy. Eligible patients will be treated with the stu...
Phase II, two arms, parallel, non comparative study with crizotinib in patients with ROS 1 translocation or MET amplification
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
Ordered rearrangement of B-lymphocyte variable gene regions of the IMMUNOGLOBULIN HEAVY CHAINS, thereby contributing to antibody diversity. It occurs during the first stage of differentiation of the IMMATURE B-LYMPHOCYTES.
Ordered rearrangement of B-lymphocyte variable gene regions coding for the kappa or lambda IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAINS, thereby contributing to antibody diversity. It occurs during the second stage of differentiation of the IMMATURE B-LYMPHOCYTES.
GILOTRIF (afatinib) is a kinase inhibitor indicated for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 (L8...
