MINI13.13 - Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Harboring EGFR Mutations (EGFR-m) and Breast Cancer (BC): A Retrospective Analysis (ID 2857)
10:45 - 12:15 | Author(s): M. Margeli
EGFR-m in NSCLC and its responsiveness to TKI has proved beneficial in a subset of NSCLC patients (p) Breast cancer (BC) represents the most incident neoplasm among women. The co-existence of both EGFR-m-NSCLC and BC has been reported in p with Li-Fraumeni Syndrome. However, no systematic evaluation of the presence of both types of cancers has been performed in the general population.
We sought to evaluate if EGFR-m-NSCLC associates higher rates of 2[nd] BC than the EGFR-wild type (WT)p. Clinical and molecular characteristics, as well as clinical outcomes of female p visited at our Institution from 2008 to 2014 and harboring both types of tumors were registered.
69/578 female p with EGFR-m were identified. Data on treatment and follow-up of 62p were available. 11/ 62p (17.7%) were diagnosed with both EGFR-m-NSCLC and BC. For EGFR-m-W-p, BC was diagnosed in 3 cases (0.52%) Regarding EGFR-m-NSCLC, age of diagnosis was 65y; 100% of p were Caucasian and never smokers. Del19, L858 and L861Q represented the 72.7%, 27.3% and 9% of EGFR-m. 36.3% had stage IV, 27.2% recurred after surgery and 36.3% initial stages never recurred. 63.6% received a TKI (42.8% erlotinib). 85.7% received TKI as 1[st] line. The overall response rate was 85.7%. 42.8% received subsequent therapies. The cause of death was related to lung cancer in all cases of death (54.5%). mOS was 29 months from the time of LC diagnosis. Regarding BC, the median age of diagnosis was 52y, BC was a prior diagnosis in 90.9%; the stage was 0, I, IIA and IIIA in 18.18%, 27.27%, 45.45% and 9.09%, respectively. After surgery (100%), 36.36% received ET, 36.36% both chemotherapy and ET and 54.54% radiotherapy (RT). 83.33% of p treated with RT developed the LC in the RT field. 90.90% of p never recurred.
Diagnosis of BC appears to be higher in EGFR-m-NSCLC-p than in the general population. Evaluation of the molecular mechanism potentially related to this association is warranted.
