    Name Crizotinib
    Groups approved
    Description Crizotinib an inhibitor of receptor tyrosine kinase for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Verification of the presence of ALK fusion gene is done by Abbott Molecular's Vysis ALK Break Apart FISH Probe Kit. This verification is used to select for patients suitable for treatment. FDA approved in August 26, 2011.

    Indication Crizotinib is used for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that is anaplastic-lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive as detected by a FDA-approved test.
    Mechanism of action Crizotinib is a tyrosine kinase receptor inhibitor. More specifically, it inhibits anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK), hepatocyte growth factor receptor (HGFR, c-MET), and Recepteur d'Origine Nantais (RON). Abnormalities in the ALK gene caused by mutations or translocations may lead to expression of oncogenic fusion proteins. In patients with NSCLC, they have the EML4-ALK gene. Crizotinib inhibits ALK tyrosine kinase which ultimately results in decreased proliferation of cells that carry the genetic mutation and tumour survivability.
