|ALK mutant||lung non-small cell carcinoma||no benefit||Crizotinib + Onalespib||Phase II||Actionable||In a Phase II trial, Onalespib (AT13387) and Xalkori (crizotinib) combination treatment did not significantly improve median progression free survival (269 vs 266 days) or objective response rate (55.4%, 38/68 vs 45.3%, 31/68) compared to Xalkori (crizotinib) single treatment in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma harboring either an ALK mutation or ALK rearrangement (J Clin Oncol 34, 2016 (suppl; abstr 9059); NCT01712217).||detail...|
|ALK mut ALK rearrange||lung non-small cell carcinoma||sensitive||Ceritinib||Clinical Study - Cohort||Actionable||In a retrospective analysis, patients with ALK-rearrangement positive non-small cell lung cancer who acquired ALK drug resistance mutations following Xalkori (crizotinib) treatment had a median progression-free survival (mPFS) of 5.4 months on Zykadia (ceritinib), which was not significantly different than the mPFS of 6.5 months for patients without ALK mutations (PMID: 25724526).||25724526|
