Phase I/II clinical trial results reported at the American Society for Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting 2015 show promising results for investigational drug brigatinib against ALK+ non-small cell lung cancer, with 58 of 78 ALK+ patients responding to treatment, including 50 of 70 patients who had progressed after previous treatment with crizotinib, the first licensed ALK inhibitor. Progression-free survival in patients previously treated with crizotinib was 13.4 months.
