ABOUT TRK FUSION CANCER AND TESTING

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.

If your doctor has
prescribed VITRAKVI®

Your doctor has tested your cancer and found that it is caused by a fusion of the NTRK gene

You’ve been matched with a treatment specifically for your TRK fusion cancer

If you and your doctor are
considering potential treatments

You may want to learn whether a fusion of the NTRK gene is causing your cancer

Talk to your doctor about genomic testing to find out if VITRAKVI
could be right for you

It is not known if VITRAKVI is safe and effective in children younger than 1 month of age.

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:

What are the different types of genomic tests?
Which type of genomic test is best for me?
How is genomic testing different than genetic testing?
How can the results of a genomic test change my treatment course?
Testimonial From Kayley

“I would tell other patients that, if you have the opportunity to have genomic testing done, go for it.”
