Attended Mark G Kris lecture on Lung Cancer  (KRIS IS FROM MSKCC)

Now genetic sequencing is important

Prescribe the following

1)  EGFR-------------ERLOTINIB, GEFITINIB
2)  ALK-----------------CRIZOTINIB
3) HER-2--------------HERCEPTIN, LAPATINIB
4) BRAF -------------------VEMURAFENIB
5) ROS-1-----------------CRIZOTINIB  (AGAIN)
6) RET--------------------------VANDETANIB  (CABOZANTINIB)
7)MET------------------------CRIZOTINIB (AGAIN)

NICE THE PRESCRIPTION SPELLING OUT ONLY THE GENE SEQUENCING, AND LET YOUR PHARMACIST DO THE REST.
QUESTION: COULD THESE DRIVER GENE ABNORMALITIES BE THE SAME IN TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCER?
