Terapia de primera línea para pacientes con cáncer pulmonar de células no pequeñas que presentan la cinasa de linfoma anaplásico (CLA) positiva.

En los pacientes en los cuales uno describe que el adenocarcinoma de pulmón de células no pequeñas tiene la translocación del gen ALK, hay terapia dirigida que atacan exclusivamente a las células que expresan esa mutación. Por lo cual los efectos adversos, la toxicidad y las respuestas son muchísimo mejores.

La primera terapia para pacientes con translocación en ALK que se ha usado en el mundo es con crisotinib. Crisotinib es una píldora que se toma diariamente, es bien tolerada y con efectos muy positivos.

The first therapy for patients with the ALK translocation that has been used in the world is with crisotinib. Crisotinib is a pill that is taken daily, is well tolerated and with very positive effects.
