Reacomodos de la Cinasa de Linfoma Anaplásico (CLA): ¿Qué Son? Y ¿Qué Pacientes la Tienen?

El cancer de pulmón de células no pequeñas ha demostrado tener mutaciones genéticas que hacen que ese cancer se pueda desarrollar y crezca. Una de esas mutaciones presente en menos del 10% de los pacientes es la mutación o translocación del gen ALK.

Es mutación o translocación permite que una proteína oncogénica se desarrolle, con lo cual los pacientes están predispuestos a desarrollar cancer de pulmón de células no pequeñas.

Por lo general, esos son pacientes no fumadores, de sexo femenino o con una historia remota de consumo de tabaco de forma remota o muy limitada.


Rearrangements of the Anaplastic Kinase Lymphoma (ALK): What Are They? And, What Patients Have Them?

Non-small cell lung cancer has proved to have many mutations that make the cancer develop and grow. One of these mutations is in less than 10% of them and it’s the mutation or translocation of the ALK gene.

This mutation or translocation allows an oncogenic protein to develop, so these patients will be predisposed to develop non-small cell lung cancer.

In general, these are non-smokers, feminine patients or with a history of limited tobacco consumption.
