|Title||The safety and efficacy for the treatment of alectinib in a women with ALK-positive lung cancer delivered a healthy male neonate throughout Pregnancy: A case report.|
|Abstract Text||The incidence of lung cancer in pregnancy is increasing because of an increase in cigarette smoking among young women, air pollution, and advanced maternal age. This is the third case report of a woman with metastatic anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive lung adenocarcinoma treated with alectinib during pregnancy. The patient was diagnosed with lung cancer at 26 weeks' gestation. Her condition rapidly progressed to disseminated intravascular coagulation accompanied by hypoxemia. After 5 days of treatment with alectinib 600 mg twice daily and best supportive care, the patient's symptoms quickly resolved. She delivered a healthy male newborn at 39 weeks' gestation. At birth, the alectinib concentration was 4.3 times higher in maternal plasma than that in newborn plasma (299.0 vs 69.2 ng/mL). The concentrations of alectinib in the amniotic fluid and the placenta were 27.3 ng/mL and 1136.25 ng/g, respectively. The alectinib concentration in the maternal milk (152 ng/mL) indicated that this drug could be excreted through the breast milk. At 12 months after the diagnosis, the mother had recovered well, and no developmental anomalies were observed in the infant.|
