Dr Alexander Drilon - Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, USA

Dr Alexander Drilon speaks with ecancertv at AACR 2016 on results from phase I trials of entrectinib, a new treatment for TRK fusions with additional effects on Ros1 and Alk.

He reports it as a safe, low toxicity treatment, with significant improvement on patient quality of life.

Dr Drilion advocates further testing of these fusions in patients, with entrectinib now approaching phase II trials.

For more on these results, you can watch his press release here, or for more on TRK fusions, you can watch an interview with Dr David Hong on treating these fusions with LOXO-101.
