What is Lorbrena?

Lorbrena is used only if your cancer has a specific genetic marker (an abnormal “ALK” gene). Your doctor will test you for this gene.

Lorbrena is given after other cancer treatments did not work or have stopped working.

Lorbrena was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on an “accelerated” basis. In clinical studies, some people responded to this medicine, but further studies are needed.

Important Information

Do not take Lorbrena if you take certain other medicines called strong CYP3A inducers. Ask your healthcare provider for a list of these medicines if you are not sure.

Tell your doctor about all your current medicines and any you start or stop using. Many drugs can interact, and some drugs should not be used together.
