|Afatinib||Gilotrif||BIBW 2992|Giotrif||EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 55 EGFR Inhibitor 2nd gen 4 HER inhibitor (Pan) 6||Gilotrif (afatinib) is a second-generation pan-Egfr inhibitor with activity against EGFR T790M and EGFR exon 19 and 21 deletions, and also inhibits ERBB2 (HER2), ERBB3 (HER3), ERBB4 (HER4) (PMID: 24435321, PMID: 25505694). Gilotrif (afatinib) is FDA approved for use in non-small cell lung cancer patients harboring non-resistant EGFR mutations, including exon 19 deletions, L858R, S768I, G719X, and L861Q, and for patients with metastatic squamous NSCLC (FDA.gov).|
|Alectinib||Alecensa||CH5424802|RO5424802||ALK Inhibitor 28 RET Inhibitor 45||Alecensa (alectinib) is an inhibitor of RET and ALK, including ALK fusions and the gatekeeper mutation, L1196M (PMID: 21575866, PMID: 25349307). Alecensa (alectinib) is FDA-approved for use in patients with ALK-positive (rearrangements and fusions) non-small cell lung cancer (FDA.gov).|
