Molecular Structure

LORBRENA™: a 3rd-generation ALK TKI, designed to address the unmet medical needs2–4

  • LORBRENA™ is a ALK TKI with a macrocyclic ring designed to address the unmet needs in ALK+ advanced NSCLC2-4
  • LORBRENA™ is a kinase inhibitor with in vitro activity against ALK and ROS1. Demonstrated in vitro activity against multiple mutant forms of the ALK enzyme, including some mutations detected in tumors at the time of disease progression on crizotinib and other ALK inhibitors1
  • LORBRENA ™ has shown in vitro and clinical activity against ALK resistance mutations, such as the hard-to-treat G1202R mutation5,6
