Filtering

  • 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"

Sorting

  • 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.

RET rearrange non-small cell lung carcinoma predicted - sensitive Alectinib Clinical Study Actionable In a clinical study, Alecensa (alectinib) treatment resulted in objective radiographic response in 50% (2/4) and stable disease in 25% (1/4) of non-small cell lung carcinoma patients harboring RET rearrangement (PMID: 27544060). 27544060
ALK rearrange ALK I1171N non-small cell lung carcinoma predicted - resistant Alectinib Clinical Study Actionable In a clinical case study, a de novo ALK I1171N mutation was identified in the liver metastasis site and circulating DNA of a non-small cell lung cancer patient harboring an ALK rearrangement after disease progression on Alecensa (alectinib) treatment (PMID: 27565911). 27565911
EML4-ALK non-small cell lung carcinoma sensitive Alectinib Preclinical - Cell line xenograft Actionable In a preclinical study, Alecensa (alectinib) inhibited Alk phosphorylation and growth of a human non-small cell lung cancer cell line harboring EML4-ALK in culture and in cell line xenograft models (PMID: 21575866). 21575866
NPM1-ALK ALK F1174V Advanced Solid Tumor decreased response Alectinib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, Alecensa (alectinib) inhibited growth of transformed cells expressing NPM1-ALK with ALK F1174V to a lesser degree than cells expressing NPM1-ALK in culture (PMID: 25421750). 25421750
