      Background:
      Human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2, ERBB2) mutations / amplifications have been identified as oncogenic drivers in 2-5% of lung cancers. It has been reported that hybridization capture-based next-generation sequencing (NGS) could reliably detect HER2 amplification in qualified breast and gastroesophageal tumor tissue samples. However, there is little data in lung cancer, especially for advance NSCLC with only ctDNA samples available.

      Method:
      We reviewed 2000 consecutive samples from advanced NSCLC patients sequenced in our institute between 2015 and 2016. Tumor biopsy and/or ctDNA samples were analyzed using hybridization capture-based NGS ER-Seq method, which enables simultaneously assess single-nucleotide variants, insertions/deletions, rearrangements, and somatic copy-number alterations at least 59 genes (range 59 – 1021 genes).

      Result:
      We identified 54 samples from 48 patients with HER2-mutation or amplification in the cohort (54/2000=2.7%). The 54 samples included 14 tissue biopsy samples, 37 ctDNA samples, and 3 pleural effusion samples. Thirty-six samples carried HER2 mutations, and 23 samples carried HER2 amplification with 5 samples have concurrent HER2 mutation and amplification. A 9-base pair (bp) in-frame insertion in exon 20 (Y772_A775dup) was detected in 18 samples (18/36=50%). In addition, there were 5 other insertions in exon 20; eight single bp substitutions (S310F) in exon 8; three exon 17 V659E mutations (from the sample patient with 3 ctDNA samples submitted at different time); one exon 19 D769H mutation; and one exon 21 V842I mutation. Amplification were identified in 23 samples, with copy number range from 3.8 to 19.6 in tissue samples (n=7, medium 11.6); from 4.3 to 51.8 in ctDNA samples (n=16, medium 7.3); 3.2 and 6 in the 2 pleural effusion samples. Interestingly, the allele frequency (AF) of HER2 mutation was the maximal in 4 of the 5 patients with concurrent HER2 mutation and amplification. Two patients were EGFR-TKI resistant with EGFR L858R mutation remaining and HER2 mutation and amplification might be the major reason for the resistance.

      Conclusion:
      HER2 mutations might coexist with HER2 amplification in advanced NSCLC patients, and it could be detected simultaneously with hybridization capture-based NGS sequencing both in tissue and liquid biopsy samples. Further quantative analysis of HER2 amplification / mutation and anti-HER2 therapeutic effects are underway.

      P1.01-002 - TP53 Mutations Predict for Poor Survival in ALK Rearrangement Lung Adenocarcinoma Patients Treated with Crizotinib (ID 8241)

      09:30 - 16:00  |  Author(s): G. Lin

      • Abstract
      • Slides

      Background:
      Advanced non-small-cell lung cancer patients who harbor anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangement are sensitive to an ALK inhibitor (Crizotinib), but not all ALK-positive patients benefit equally from crizotinib treatment. We analyze the impact of TP53 mutations on response to crizotinib in patients with ALK rearrangement non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

      Method:
      66 ALK rearrangement NSCLC patients receiving crizotinib were analyzed. 21 cases were detected successfully by the next generation sequencing validation FFPE before crizotinib. TP53 mutations were evaluated in 8 patients in relation to disease control rate (DCR), objective response rate (ORR), progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).

      Result:
      TP53 mutations were observed in 2 (25.00%), 1 (12.50%), 1 (12.50%) and 4 (50.00%) patients in exons 5, 6, 7 and 8, respectively. The majority of patients were male (75.00%, 6/8), less than 60 years old (62.50%, 5/8) and never smokers (75.00%, 6/8). ORR and DCR for crizotinib in the entire case series were 61.90% and 71.43%, respectively. Statistically significant difference was observed in terms of PFS and OS between TP53 gene wild group and mutation group patients (P=0.038, P=0.021, respectively).

      Conclusion:
      TP53 mutations reduce responsiveness to crizotinib and worsen prognosis in ALK rearrangement NSCLC patients.

      P1.02-045 - PIK3CA Mutations in Chinese Patients with Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer (ID 8264)

      09:30 - 16:00  |  Author(s): G. Lin

      • Abstract
      • Slides

      Background:
      PIK3CA mutation represents a clinical subset of diverse carcinomas. We explored the status of PIK3CA mutation and evaluated its genetic variability and prognosis in patients with lung adenocarcinoma. The aim of this study is to investigate mutations and prognosis of non-small-cell lung cancer(NSCLC) harboring PIK3CA mutations.

      Method:
      A total of 517 patients with NSCLC were recruited between July 2012 and December 2014. The status of PIK3CA mutation and other genes were detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction(RT-PCR) or next generation sequencing.

      Result:
      PIK3CA gene mutation was detected in 3.09% (16/517) NSCLC patients, including H1047R (4 patients), E545A (2 patients), E453K (2 patients), H1065Y (2 patients), E545K (1 patient), E39K (1 patient), E542K (1 patient), C420R (1 patient), K111E (1 patient) and E545K plus L781F (1 patient), and median overall survival (OS) for these patients was 23.0 months. Among them, 12 patients with co-occurring mutations had a median OS of 28.0 months, and median OS of the 4 patients without complex mutations was 21.0 months. No statistically significant difference was found between the two groups (P=0.06). Briefly, patients with (n=5) or without (n=11) co-occurring EGFR mutations had a median OS of 28.5 months and 21.0 months repectively (P=0.45); patients with (n=4) or without (n=12) co-occurring TP53 mutations had a median OS of 30.6 months and 21.0 months repectively (P=0.51).

      Conclusion:
      There is no significant difference of molecular features in PIK3CA gene mutations in NSCLC. Patients with complex mutations benefited more from therapy than those with single mutations.

      P3.01-008 - Association between Icotinib Efficacy and Circulating Tumor Cell Levels in Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (ID 8253)

      09:30 - 16:00  |  Author(s): G. Lin

      • Abstract
      • Slides

      Background:
      Advanced non-small cell lung cancer(NSCLC) studies indicated a potential association between chemotherapy efficacy and circulating tumor cells (CTC) counts in peripheral blood. The icotinib efficacy and circulating tumor cells (CTC) counts in non-small cell lung cancer remain unknown. The aim is to investigate association between the icotinib efficacy and CTC counts in advanced NSCLC patients.

      Method:
      A total of 74 advanced NSCLC patients consented to provide 5ml of peripheral blood before systematic therapy, and divided into two groups (those with high CTC counts and those with low CTC counts) based on the patients′ median CTC counts. All the patients were treated with icotinib, and the icotinib efficacy and prognoses were compared.

      Result:
      The treatment efficacies were 46.88% (15/32) and 23.81% (10/42) for the low CTC group and the high CTC group, respectively. The median overall survival was 22.0 months (95%CI: 19.6-28.7 months) for the low CTC group and 18.3 months (95% CI: 15.3-25.4 months) for the high CTC group. The median progression-free survival was 11.6 months (95% CI: 8.7-15.6 months) and 7.2 months (95% CI: 3.4-8.7 months) for the low group and the high CTC group, respectively.

      Conclusion:
      The CTC counts can be used as a important biomarker for therapy monitoring the icotinib effect on patients with advanced NSCLC. Efficacy and prognosis of icotinib and CTC counts were considered important, and the CTC counts could be used to predict the efficacy of icotinib and prognosis of advanced NSCLC. The change in CTC count levels can be used as a biomarker for evaluating the prognosis of patients with advanced NSCLC.
