Medical Scientists Are Targeting Specific Cancer Genes To Stop Tumor Growth



Cancer. The mere utterance of the word strikes fear and anxiety in the hearts of most people. It robs people of energy, health and life. Scientists have learned much about the disease. Molecular testing indicates that some diverse cancers actually originate from the same genes. This means that if medical scientists were able to put those oncogenes out of commission, the cancer would be less likely to spread. 

Medical researchers are currently investigating the use of a powerful new drug called Entrectinib which would target specific cancer genes thereby reducing tumor growth.

As a CureClick Ambassador, I want to tell everyone that an important new study nicknamed STARTRK-2, is enrolling patients diagnosed with various cancers who have the same cancer genes. The STARTRK-2 trial is recruiting patients with gene rearrangements in NTRK1, NTRK2, NTRK3, ROS1, or ALK. To find out if you would be a candidate for this study, talk to your doctor. Your doctor can order a no-cost test to see if you have fusions of the above genes. So, please share this with your family, friends and others who may benefit from the news.

For those of you whom are not familiar with clinical trials, here's some information that you can use:


What Are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans.

All investigational devices and medicines must undergo several clinical trials, often times these clinical trials require thousands of people.

Why participate in a clinical trial?

People whom are eligible will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval.

People whom are eligible for clinical trials will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical staff at research facilities.

Clinical trials offer hope for many people and gives researchers a chance to find better treatment for others in the future.
