Novel Agent Active in ROS1-Mutant NSCLC BookmarkEmma Shtivelman, PhD
Excerpt from MedPage Today:
“Three-fourths of patients with ROS1-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) had objective responses lasting an average of 2 years with an investigational multikinase inhibitor, a preliminary trial showed.
“Overall, 41 of 53 patients responded to treatment with entrectinib, including 17 of 33 patients with central nervous system (CNS) metastases at baseline. Responses had a median duration of 24.6 months among patients without CNS metastases and 13.6 months among those with CNS metastases.”
