As the cancer with the highest morbidity and mortality rate in the world, the progress and approval of new lung cancer drugs have shown a blowout state in the past two years.

Especially in the field of lung cancer, targeted therapy drugs targeting specific mutated genes (such as EGFR, ALK, ROS1, MET, RET, NTRK, KRAS targeted therapy) have further improved the survival hope of many lung cancer patients.

 

At the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting (ASCO) held in June 2019, the data of Repotrectinib (TPX-0005), a new targeted drug that swept across the three targets of ALK/ROS1/NTRK, was amazing.

 

Repotrectinib is a new generation of oral multi-targeted drug developed by Turning Point Therapeutics in the United States. It has inhibitory effects on ALK, ROS1 and NTRK. It can overcome a variety of gene mutations that are resistant to other TKIs and kill ROS1. , NTRK and ALK positive solid tumors.

 


The FDA granted priority approval to repotrectinib, which is expected to be on the market by the end of 2023!
