|Therapy Name||Ceritinib + Crizotinib|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Ceritinib||Zykadia||LDK378||ALK Inhibitor 29 ROS1 Inhibitor 19||Zykadia (ceritinib) inhibits ALK, including ALK mutations and fusions, and has additional activity against ROS1 fusions, potentially resulting in decreased tumor cell growth (PMID: 25322323, PMID: 26372962). Zykadia (ceritinib) is FDA approved for ALK-positive (rearrangements and fusions) metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (FDA.gov).|
|Crizotinib||Xalkori||PF-02341066||ALK Inhibitor 29 BCR-ABL Inhibitor 29 MET Inhibitor 56 RON Inhibitor 11 ROS1 Inhibitor 19||Xalkori (crizotinib) inhibits ALK kinase, ALK fusion proteins, c-Met, ROS1 fusion proteins, and MST1R (RON), resulting in growth inhibition of tumor cells (PMID: 26951079, PMID: 22617245). Xalkori (crizotinib) is FDA approved for use in patients with ALK- or ROS1-positive (rearrangements and fusions) metastatic non-small cell lung cancer, in pediatric patients 1 year and older and young adults with relapsed or refractory, ALK-positive systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma, and in adult and pediatric patients 1 year and older with ALK-positive, unresectable, recurrent, or refractory inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (FDA.gov).|
