Resistencia adquirida a las terapias dirigidas: Biología y diferentes patrones clínicos.

Lamentablemente inclusive en pacientes que tienen la translocación de ALK, eventualmente los pacientes van a desarrollar una resistencia adquirida, por lo cual la medicación con crizotinib no va a funcionar mas.

Por lo general, estos son pacientes que van a tener un prelapso o una recaída en sistema nervioso central o pulmón. Esos son pacientes a los cuales que uno va a considerar terapia de segunda línea o cambiar a quimioterapia.


Acquired resistance to targeted therapies: biology and different clinical patterns.

Unfortunately, even patients with ALK translocation will eventually develop an acquired resistance, resulting in crisotinib not working anymore.

In general, these patients will have a relapse or re-fall in the central nervous system or lung. In these patients, we will consider a second line therapy or change to chemotherapy.
