KRAS is the most common biomarker associated with lung, colorectal, plus other cancers. Identified 50 years ago, researchers have learned that different sub-types of KRAS respond to treatments differently.
We founded KRAS Kickers to actively monitor and share KRAS-related research developments, information and clinical trials within the community that will benefit the most, us. We are the patients that need the best outcomes to live our lives.
A biomarker is something measured by your doctor. This helps to identify the best treatment options for your cancer. KRAS targeted therapies are becoming options.
