Good morning @speedy and welcome to the Lung Cancer Group. I've not heard of Gavreto before. I read up a bit and this is what google has: "GAVRETO is a prescription medicine used to treat certain cancers caused by abnormal rearranged during transfection (RET) genes in: adults with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that has spread." This is way too scientifically complicated for me to understand.

Did your doctor explain why this Rx was prescribed? Do you see any difference in your breathing?

Thanks for responding. Gavreto is a drug approved by the FDA last December to treat RET fusion nsclc . It is targeted drug designed to attack cancer cells in both of my lungs. SOB has increased in past two weeks.
