How VITRAKVI works in TRK fusion cancer
In some types of cancer, NTRK genes abnormally join with, or fuse to, other genes, which produces TRK fusion proteins. These TRK fusion proteins can cause cancer cells to grow. When an NTRK gene fusion is found as the cause, this kind of cancer can also be called “TRK fusion cancer.”
The only way to find out if you have TRK fusion cancer is to test for it.
