Clinical Trials for ROS1+ Cancer

You can find clinical trials for ROS1+ cancer anywhere in the world by searching the clinicaltrials.gov website (or clinicaltrialsregister.eu for trials in Europe).  All clinical trials conducted in the USA are required to be listed on this site, and most trials conducted by major drug companies in other countries are also listed. However, not every trial in every country is listed.  Various clinical trial finder apps exist to make searching this database easier, but they are all searching the same database.

There are a few dozen clinical trials for ROS1+ cancers running in the world today.  Some trials are for novel ROS1 targeted therapies; others are for chemotherapy, radiation therapy, adjuvant TKIs, or combination therapies. 

Because the status and sites for each trial can change frequently, The ROS1ders doesn't have the staff to keep a complete list of trials updated online. However, we do communicate with pharmaceutical firms that have experimental or approved ROS1 TKIs and have current information on several of the experimental treatments listed below. This list was last updated on 19-February-2022.

Some clinical trials might assist with travel planning and expense. If this your patient is interested in this, have them contact the trial site where they would like to participate. The ROS1ders do not have funding available for treatment, but we may be able to assist in connecting the patient to resources (contact us).

ROS1 TKIs in Clinical Trials 

Drug names are linked  to the reference section that lists scientific presentations and journal articles about the drug.

 

Several of the TKIs approved for non-small cell lung cancer are available for ROS1+ solid tumors via basket clinical trials or expanded access.

Some drug trials for ROS1 might not be listed on clinicaltrials.org, or might not share information about the drug publicly. The ROS1ders won't have knowledge of those trials or drugs.
