Advances in cancer drug development now mean that the precise molecular profile of the tumour can guide treatment choice. Consequently, identifying patients with certain molecular alterations is crucial.  Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) is an oncogenic driver that is present in some patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. (Soda M, et al Nature 2007;448:561–66)

www.alktesting.com is a new Pfizer-funded website designed for healthcare professionals interested in learning more about ALK and how to test for ALK. Visit the website for the latest information and watch expert oncologists and pathologists talk about ALK and ALK testing.
