ALK -Positive Lung Adenocarcinoma: NEJM Case Records

Posted Jul 27 2011 10:04am

The July 14, 2011 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine features a nice case report as part of the weekly "Case Records of the MGH" series.  I thought those interested in lung cancer would benefit from reading this, especially in light of recent advances recognizing ALK translocations as driver mutations in about 5% of lung ADC--and the drug crizotinib to treat these particular tumors (my previous post on ALK inhibition in lung cancer).
