Dr. Ross Camidge, University of Colorado, addresses the question of whether to use a second generation ALK inhibitor as first line therapy or only after acquired resistance to crizotinib.
Dr. Ross Camidge, University of Colorado, discusses management of CNS progression for ALK-positive NSCLC including monitoring frequency and preferences between systemic and radiation therapy.
Dr. Ross Camidge, University of Colorado, describes the second generation ALK-inhibitors which provide good options for ALK-positive NSCLC patients who have developed acquired resistance to crizotinib.
Dr. Ross Camidge, University of Colorado, explains the preference for crizotinib rather than platinum doublet chemotherapy as first line treatment for patients with ALK or ROS1 rearrangements.
Dr. Ross Camidge, University of Colorado, describes ROS-1 rearrangements and compares them to ALK rearrangements in frequency of occurrence and response to treatment.
Dr. Ross Camidge, University of Colorado, describes ALK rearrangements and the characteristics of patients who most often have them.
More and more, when people are doing molecular testing on their tumor, they’re not just getting one test and if it’s negative doing another test — that’s called sequential testing, they’re doing lots of tests at the same time — that’s called multiplex testing. There are certain good things about that and certain things which are less than good.
Dr. Bob Doebele: How Should We Manage Acquired Resistance with a Single Lesion or More Diffuse Progression?
Dr. Bob Doebele from the University of Colorado, offers his insights on how to approach a patient with gradual progression in a single site, especially in the brain, or more multifocal progression after a good initial response to a targeted agent.
Dr. Bob Doebele on the Most Promising Upcoming New Targeted Agents and Molecular Pathways for Lung Cancer Treatment
Dr. Bob Doebele from the University of Colorado, provides his view on the targeted therapy approaches most likely to become clinically useful in lung cancer over the next several years.
Drs. Ross Camidge and Corey Langer describe which patients with advanced NSCLC they seek molecular marker testing on.
