Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are a rare disease that metastasises in up to 85% of patients with subsequent median progression-free survival (PFS) of only around 30 months. Tumours are characterised by activating mutations in the KIT or the PDGFRA gene and therefore treatment is mainly based on tyrosine kinase inhibitors designed to block these mutated receptors. However, drug resistance ...
