    Here is a link to an ASCO abstract that summarizes the initial result from a Phase I trial of XL228. 41 patients were enrolled (having various kinds of tumors). Apparantly 5 of 9 (56%) of NSCLC patients experienced stable disease for greater than 12 weeks (up to 29 weeks). The abstract does not break out results by ALK status.
