Molecular Profile EML4 - ALK
Therapy Crizotinib
Indication/Tumor Type lung non-small cell carcinoma
Response Type sensitive


  • 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"


  • 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.

EML4 - ALK lung non-small cell carcinoma sensitive Crizotinib Clinical Study - Cohort Actionable In a clinical study, non-small cell lung carcinoma patients harboring an EML4-ALK variant 1 (E13; A20, n=19) demonstrated a significantly longer progression-free survival (11.0 vs 4.2 months, p<0.05) compared to patients with a non-variant 1 EML4-ALK fusion (n=16) when treated with Xalkori (crizotinib) (PMID: 27354483). 27354483
EML4 - ALK lung non-small cell carcinoma sensitive Crizotinib Phase I Actionable In a Phase I trial, Xalkori (crizotinib) inhibited tumor growth by at least 30% from baseline in 90% (18/20) of patients with EML4-ALK positive non-small cell lung carcinoma (PMID: 20979469; NCT00585195; NCT00585195). 20979469
