DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (ALK-NSCLC) - Epidemiology Forecast to 2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This report delivers an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical and forecasted ALK NSCLCepidemiology in the 7MM, i.e., the United States, EU5 (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan.
There are mainly two types of lung cancer small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). NSCLC can be defined as any type of epithelial lung cancer other than SCLC. It is mainly subcategorized into adenocarcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, large cell carcinomas and several other types that occur less frequently include adenosquamous carcinomas, and sarcomatoid carcinomas. In these subtypes adenocarcinoma accounts for highest number of cases, i.e., approximately 47% followed by Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Large Cell Carcinoma.
There are several genetic mutations identified to play a major role in the progression of this indication. Mutations in EGFR, KRAS, and ALK are mutually exclusive in patients with NSCLC, and the presence of one mutation instead of another can influence response to targeted therapy. There are several mutations associated with NSCLC but the most common are EGFR, KRAS, ROS-1, BRAF, C-Met, PD-L1 expression and others. Among all the mutations ALK mutation accounted for approximately 4% of the total cases of NSCLC.
ALK-positive mutation was discovered in 2007. ALK-positive lung cancers harbor a gene rearrangement referred to as the EML4-ALK fusion gene, compose a subset of tumors for which medical treatment has expanded rapidly (along with survival) in the past few years. An ALK mutation is diagnosed by molecular profiling of a sample of the tumor. It's important in doing this testing that an adequate supply of tissue from either a lung biopsy or lung cancer surgery is obtained. Researchers are also looking at ways to determine if an ALK mutation is present before genetic testing is done, or could substitute for genetic testing.
