Crizotinib is an inhibitor of multiple tyrosine kinases, including the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Responses to crizotinib have also been reported in patients with ALK-positive anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) and solid tumors with ALK-mutation, including neuroblastoma. Optimal treatment for patients with recurrent or refractory ALK-positive ALCL and neuroblastoma has not been established. There is a need to develop new drugs for these patients. The objectives of this trial are to evaluate the tolerability and safety of crizotinib in Japanese patients with recurrent/refractory ALK-positive ALCL or neuroblastoma (phase I) and its efficacy in recurrent/refractory ALK-positive ALCL (phase II).
