Alectinib is a second generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor that is approved for use in ALK positive non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs). Alectinib is effective against a number of ALK mutants that arise after treatment with crizotinib, however resistance to alectinib has also been reported. This pathway describes ALK mutants that are resistant to inhibition with alectinib (reviewed in Lovly and Pao, 2012; Lin et al, 2017; Della Corte et al, 2018; Hallberg and Palmer, 2016).
