Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) Inhibitors Show Activity in Colorectal Cancer With ALK Rearrangements: Case Series and Literature Review. (PubMed, Oncologist)
Both fluorouracil, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin (FOLFOX) and bevacizumab combined with 5-fluorouracil, l-leucovorin, and irinotecan (FOLFIRI) proved ineffective against the disease...The patient was initially treated with ensartinib monotherapy for 9 months, then with ensartinib combined with local radiotherapy and fruquintinib for another 4 months for isolated hilar hepatic lymph node metastasis. The patient experienced disease progression with an acquired ALK G1202R resistance mutation that responded well to lorlatinib...However, the patient responded remarkably well to alectinib. Our report emphasizes the importance of gene detection in the treatment of malignant tumors, and the significance of ALK mutations in CRC.

Molecular Characterization and Therapeutic Targeting of Colorectal Cancers Harboring Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Fusions. (PubMed, Clin Cancer Res)
RTK fusions in CRC are a rare but important disease subgroup that occur in RAS and BRAF wild-type tumors. Despite enrichment in acquired MMR-D tumors, RTK fusions also occur in microsatellite-stable CRC and provide an important therapeutic target.
