Gene Variant Detail

ALK positive (unknown)

Relevant Treatment Approaches

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

ALK positive lung non-small cell carcinoma sensitive Entrectinib Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a Phase I trial, Rozlytrek (entrectinib) treatment resulted in stable disease in a patient with ALK-positive non-small cell lung carcinoma (J Clin Oncol 32:5s, 2014 (suppl; abstr 2502)). detail...
ALK positive lung non-small cell carcinoma sensitive Ensartinib Phase II Actionable In a Phase II trial, Ensartinib (X-396) treatment resulted in an objective response in 52% (76/147; all partial responses), and disease control in 93% (137/147) of patients with crizotinib-refractory ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer, and a median progression-free survival of 9.6 mo., and of the 97 patients with brain metastases, 41% (40) demonstrated a partial response, and of those, 28 (70%) had an intracranial response and 39 (98%) had intracranial disease control (PMID: 31628085; NCT03215693). 31628085
ALK positive lung non-small cell carcinoma predicted - sensitive Lorlatinib Phase III Actionable In a Phase III trial, patients with previously untreated ALK-positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer treated with Lorbrena (lorlatinib) demonstrated a significantly improved 12-month progression-free survival rate (78% vs 39%; HR=0.28, p<0.001), objective response rate (76%, 113/149 vs 58%, 85/147; OR=2.25), and intracranial response rate (66%, 25/38 vs 20%, 8/40; OR=8.41) compared to patients treated with Xalkori (crizotinib) (PMID: 33207094; NCT03052608). 33207094
ALK positive neuroblastoma predicted - sensitive Ceritinib Phase I Actionable In a Phase I trial, Zykadia (ceritinib) treatment was well tolerated and resulted in an overall response rate of 20% (6/30; 6 partial response), a disease control rate of 53% (16/30), and a median progression-free survival of 2.4 months in pediatric patients with ALK-positive neuroblastoma (PMID: 34780709; NCT01742286). 34780709
ALK positive Advanced Solid Tumor predicted - sensitive Ceritinib Phase I Actionable In a Phase I trial, Zykadia (ceritinib) treatment was well tolerated and resulted in an overall response rate of 14% (1/7), a disease control rate of 43% (3/7), and a progression-free survival of 1.9 months in pediatric patients with ALK-positive advanced solid tumors other than neuroblastoma, anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (PMID: 34780709; NCT01742286). 34780709
