MO12.10 - Analysis of BIM Deletion polymorphism in Chinese Patients with NSCLC (ID 1083)
10:30 - 12:00 | Author(s): J. Zhong
Drug resistance significantly weakens the effect of treatment. BIM deletion polymorphism has emerged as a potential drug resistant biomarker. This study aimed at assessing the correlation of BIM deletion with the outcome of Epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors(EGFR-TKIs ) and chemotherapy in Chinese NSCLC patients
290 patients with advanced NSCLC who received EGFR-TKIs and chemotherapy were included in this retrospective study. BIM deletion polymorphism and EGFR mutations were detected by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC) respectively.
BIM deletion polymorphism occurs commonly in Chinese NSCLC patients (15.5%, 45/290). No associations were observed between BIM deletion polymorphism with clinicopathology characteristics including sex, smoking and EGFR mutation status. BIM deletion polymorphism predicts shorter PFS in Chinese patients with EGFR-mutant NSCLC received EGFR-TKIs (6.69 vs 8.47months, P=0.023). Meanwhile, we found that BIM deletion polymorphism is an effective predictor of short PFS in individuals with EGFR-mutant NSCLC treated with pemetrexed contained chemotherapy (3.32vs5.30, P=0.012) or with second-/beyond-line Taxanes contained chemotherapy (1.53 vs 2.61months, P=0.025) However, In the EGFR-wild type group, the difference is not significant for the former two groups. patients with this deletion are prone to suffering serious adverse event (SAE) (4.5% vs. 15.6%, P=0.018). BIM deletion lacks for correlation with OS. (21.87vs21.90months, P=0.627), even in the EGFR-mutant group.
BIM deletion polymorphism occurs in 15.5% Chinese NSCLC patients. BIM deletion polymorphism is a drug resistance biomarker for TKIs and chemotherapy in NSCLC. BIM deletion possibly affects OS, but not a decisive factor.
