Title Acquired ALK G1202R-, ALK I1171N-, or EML4-ALK-mediated resistance to ensartinib in lung adenocarcinoma but responded to lorlatinib: A case report.
Abstract Text ALK rearrangements are identified as driver mutations in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). EML4 is the most common partner of ALK rearrangements. Here, we reported a patient with lung adenocarcinoma who was identified with EML4-ALK mutations when he progressed on an immune checkpoint inhibitor. The patient was treated with alectinib and obtained a progression-free survival (PFS) of 24 months. Then, next-generation sequencing on circulating tumor DNA identified multiple ALK mutations, including ALK G1202R, I1171N, ALK-ENC1, and EML4-ALK. Ensartinib was given, and the patient achieved a PFS of 5 months. After progression, lorlatinib was administered, and the patient achieved a partial response. Now, the benefit is still ongoing with a PFS over 10 months. Our case may provide evidence for the treatment choice of multiple ALK mutations, including ALK I1171N.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. 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 on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "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.
