Zykadia (Ceritinib) is used to treat adult patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive locally advanced (a cancer that cannot be surgically removed for cure) or metastatic (a cancer that has spread to other parts of the body) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have progressed on (their cancer got worse) or who were intolerant to (unable to take) the drug crizotinib. Zykadia is also used to treat adult patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive locally advanced (a cancer that cannot be surgically removed for cure) or metastatic (a cancer that has spread to other parts of the body) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Zykadia belongs to a group of anti-tumor medicines which stop cancer from making new cells if the cancer is caused by a defect in a gene called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Zykadia may slow down the growth and spread of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Take Zykadia exactly as your healthcare professional has told you at the same time each day. Take Zykadia with food (for example a snack or full meal). Swallow whole with water. Do not chew or crush capsules.
