Understanding TRK fusion cancer
TRK fusion cancer can occur in both adults and children. The location of a tumor can vary from person to person, but the cause is the same: an NTRK gene fusion. So having TRK fusion cancer doesn’t change your original diagnosis, it just explains the cause of it.
What genomic testing can tell you about your cancer
Genomic testing may or may not have already been done on your cancer. It’s important that you speak to your doctor about it. Genomic testing may reveal the cause of your cancer so your doctor has more information when deciding which treatment is right for you.
VITRAKVI was approved through a faster FDA review process based on the percentage
of patients whose tumor size shrank or disappeared after treatment and how long that response lasted. There are ongoing studies to confirm the benefit of VITRAKVI for this use.
Some questions you can ask your doctor about genomic testing:
“I would tell other patients that, if you have the opportunity to have genomic testing done, go for it.”
