Approval was based on a P-III (ALINA) trial assessing the safety & efficacy of adj. Alecensa vs Pt-CT to treat adults (n=257) with resected Stage IB (tumor ≥ 4 cm) to IIIA ALK+ NSCLC
Results showed a 76% reduction in the disease recurrence or death risk and the exploratory analysis showed an improved CNS, DFS with a consistent safety profile with no new safety concerns. These results were highlighted at the NEJM in Apr 2024
