About Alunbrig  (brigatinib)

Alunbrig is a treatment for people with a specific type of lung cancer. It has been given to you because:

  • You have lung cancer with a certain type of abnormal gene called ALK (anaplastic lymphoma kinase), described as ALK-positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer, or ALK+ aNSCLC.

How does Alunbrig work?

Cancer grows and spreads by cells dividing. The abnormal ALK gene produces a protein known as a kinase that stimulates the growth of the cancer cells. Alunbrig blocks the action of this protein, thereby slowing down the growth and spread of the cancer.


Speak to your nurse or oncologist if you would like more information on how Alunbrig may work for you
