Complete and durable response to crizotinib in a patient with malignant pleural mesothelioma harboring CD74-ROS1 fusion

Published date:
In this report, we describe a case of MPM with CD74-ROS1 fusion who obtains complete and durable response after receiving crizotinib. By the time of submission, the progression-free survival (PFS) with crizotinib has been 6.0 years, and the patient has survived for 7.6 years. Currently, he is still in complete remission (CR). To the best of our knowledge, this case represents the first report of CD74-ROS1 fusion identified in MPM. Meanwhile, it is also the first report of complete and long-term response to crizotinib in a patient with MPM positive for CD74-ROS1 fusion.
