SEATTLE, April 12, 2021, (PHARMIWEB) — ALK Positive Lung Cancer Treatment Market – Insights

Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) positive lung cancer is caused due to mutation of ALK, a gene that aids introduction of proteins. In the mutation, fusion of two genes called as ALK and Echinoderm Microtubule-associated protein Like 4 (EML4) leads to gene rearrangement. The ALK gene fusion was first reported in 2007, in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients.

Increasing R&D of new drugs to augment growth of the market

Increasing focus of market players in R&D and approval of new drugs is expected to boost growth of the global ALK positive lung cancer treatment market. For instance, in August 2018, China National Drug Administration (CNDA) approved Alecensa (alectinib) of F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. for the treatment of ALK-positive lung cancer. Moreover, CNDA also granted marketing authorization for Alecensa (alectinib), as monotherapy treatment for patients with ALK-positive and advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Increasing resistance to drugs to hinder growth of the market

Increasing resistance to drugs is expected to hamper growth of the ALK positive lung cancer treatment market. For instance, according to an Oncology Live February 2018 report, major challenge in drug development is rapid growth in resistance, which is responsible for slow patient recovery from disease. Moreover, according to an article published in Cancers journal, in August 2017, the mechanisms for resistance in drugs is tyrosine kinase mutations and Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) activation. These bypass mechanisms of resistance are aggravating tumor cells.
