Brigatinib in NF2-Related Schwannomatosis

Brigatinib in NF2-Related Schwannomatosis with Progressive Tumors.

  • NF2-related schwannomatosis (NF2-SWN, formerly called neurofibromatosis type 2) is a tumor predisposition syndrome that is manifested by multiple vestibular schwannomas, nonvestibular schwannomas, meningiomas, and ependymomas.
  • The condition is relentlessly progressive with no approved therapies.
  • On the basis of preclinical activity of brigatinib (an inhibitor of multiple tyrosine kinases) in NF2-driven nonvestibular schwannoma and meningioma, data were needed on the use of brigatinib in patients with multiple types of progressive NF2-SWN tumors.
  • Radiographic response was 10% for target tumors and 23% (95% CI, 16 to 30) for all tumors.
  • Hearing improvement occurred in 35% (95% CI, 20 to 53) of eligible ears.”
