Therapeutic Strategies to Overcome ALK Resistance in Cancer, Volume 13, presents current strategies to improve and prolong clinical benefit in ALK driven cancers. Most patients with ALK-driven cancer are sensitive to tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy, but resistance invariably develops. This book discusses topics such as structure and function of ALK, ALK rearranged lung cancer, resistance mechanisms to ALK TKI tumors, and novel therapeutic strategies to enhance crizotinib anti-tumor efficacy in ALCL. Additionally, it encompasses information on drug combinations to enhance ALK TKI anti-tumor efficacy in neuroblastoma and future perspectives in the field. This book is a valuable resource for cancer researchers, clinicians and several members of biomedical field who need to understand more about how to fight ALK resistance in cancer treatment. Explains the biology of ALK RTK, focusing on its tissue expression, structure and functionality Presents an overview of current treatments and the benefits of ALK TKI in lung and other cancer types, such as ALCL, neuroblastoma and inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor Encompasses information on systemic treatments other than TKI, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy and antiangiogenic agents in ALK-driven NSCLC

Protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) deregulation contributes to growth of cancer and many other diseases. The development of small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) that target the deregulated PTKs, such as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and Bcr-ABL in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), has revolutionized disease management. In this book, we examine a few aspects of PTKs and cancer, considering efficacy, predictive markers to therapeutic response, limitations, and future directions in TKI treatment. In this rapidly evolving

This book aims to educate nurses and advanced practice providers (APP’s) about known mutations, availability of targeted therapy and the management of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It will educate nurses and practitioners about the scope of therapy to assure safe and effective lung cancer treatment. In this era of personalized medicine, nurses and APP’s are responsible for guiding patients from diagnosis through treatment. This starts with the identification of patients that can benefit from these

Chemotherapy is one of the major treatment options for cancer patients; however, the efficacy of chemotherapeutic management of cancer is severely limited by multidrug resistance, in that cancer cells become simultaneously resistant to many structurally and mechanistically unrelated drugs. In the past three decades, a number of mechanisms by which cancer cells acquire multidrug resistance have been discovered. In addition, the development of agents or strategies to overcome resistance has been the subject of intense study. This book contains comprehensive
