'Weeding the garden' lets ALK+ lung cancer patients continue crizotinib
Date:1/28/2014

l survival benefit will need to be studied formally in a prospective clinical trial currently being established at the University of Colorado.

Among the 38 ALK+ patients, the overall survival at 2 years was 57 percent, but among those who stayed on crizotinib for more than a year it was 72 percent compared to 12 percent in those who discontinued crizotinib earlier.

"Not only does this study raise very important questions, but the pulling together of all the different analyses is part of a string of impressive achievements by Dr. Gan, who is emerging as a young leader in the field of radiation oncology," says Brian Kavanagh, MD, MPH, CU Cancer Center investigator and vice-chair of radiation oncology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

"We've been using radiotherapeutic local ablative therapy to control pockets of drug-resistant cancer not just in ALK+ lung cancer patients but in other types of cancer in patients on targeted therapy or chemotherapy. Radiotherapy has shown great success controlling these sites of resistant disease but more work needs to be done to fully determine when it is best to use local therapies versus a change in systemic therapy. The next step will hopefully be a prospective clinical study," says Dr. Kavanagh.
