Abstract Text Preclinical data show that the combination of an ALK inhibitor (ALKi) with a cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 inhibitor (CDK4/6i) may act synergistically to overcome drug resistance mechanisms. Here, we assessed the safety, tolerability, and preliminary clinical activity of ceritinib, an ALKi in combination with ribociclib, a CDK4/6i, in patients with ALK-rearranged non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).This was a multicenter, open-label, phase Ib/II dose-escalation study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended phase II dose (RP2D) for ceritinib plus ribociclib therapy.Twenty-seven adult patients with ALK-rearranged advanced NSCLC with an ECOG PS ≤ 2 were enrolled into five cohorts to receive various dose combinations of ceritinib (range, 300-450 mg/day) and ribociclib (range, 100-300 mg/day). Median age of patients was 57 years. MTDs were not reached in this study. Enrollment into phase Ib was terminated early and phase II was not opened due to changes in the ALK-rearranged NSCLC treatment landscape. Ceritinib 300 mg/day and ribociclib 200 mg/day (3-weeks-on/1-week-off schedule) was identified as the RP2D. Among the 27 evaluable patients, the overall response rate (ORR) was 37.0% (95% CI, 19.4-57.6) and median progression-free survival (mPFS) was 21.5 months (95% CI, 5.5-25.0). At RP2D, the ORR was 50.0%, disease control rate was 75%, and mPFS was 24.8 months (95% CI, 5.5-25.1). Safety profile of the combination therapy was consistent with single-agent safety data.Combination of ceritinib and ribociclib showed clinical activity with a manageable safety profile in patients with advanced ALK-rearranged NSCLC.


  • 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.

ALK rearrange lung non-small cell carcinoma predicted - sensitive Ceritinib + Ribociclib Phase Ib/II Actionable In a Phase I/II trial, Zykadia (ceritinib) and Kisqali (ribociclib) combination therapy demonstrated a manageable safety profile and resulted in an overall response rate of 37.0% (10/27; 1 complete response and 9 partial responses) with a median progression-free survival of 21.5 months in patients with advanced ALK-rearranged non-small cell lung cancer (PMID: 35298959). 35298959
