about
trk fusion
cancer

TRK fusion cancer is a term used to describe a variety of common and rare cancers that are caused by a change to the NTRK gene called a fusion. During this fusion, an NTRK gene joins together, or fuses, with a different gene.

This joining results in the activation of certain proteins (TRK fusion proteins), which can cause cancer cells to multiply and form a tumor.

body outlines with genomic markers and NTRK NTRK gene fusion

Some genomic markers tend to cause tumors in certain areas of the body. In TRK fusion cancer, the same marker (NTRK gene fusion) can cause cancer to begin in a different part of the body from patient to patient.

gene 1 and gene 2 tumor driver is an NTRK gene fusion

The idea of TRK fusion cancer may be new to you and you may understand cancer in terms of an area of the body, such as lung or colon cancer. Having TRK fusion cancer doesn’t change your original diagnosis; it just means that your tumor’s driver is an NTRK gene fusion.
