      Background:
      Small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) has been occasionally detected in never-smokers as smoking rates decrease worldwide. We investigated the clinical and genetic characteristics of SCLC in never-smokers (Geno1.3-CLICaP)

      Method:
      A cohort of patients diagnosed with SCLC were grouped into smokers (n=10) and ever/never-smokers (n=10). For both groups, somatic mutation profiling was carried out using a comprehensive NGS assay (TruSight Tumor 170) targeting the full coding regions of 170 cancer-related genes. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation was confirmed by RT-PCR (Cobas[TM]). The clinical outcomes of the two groups were compared using Kaplan-Meier and Cox proportional models.

      Result:
      Median age was 58 years (r, 46-81), 55% (n = 11) were men, most patients had extended disease (85%) and the dominant tumor involvement site was pleura and lungs (65%). No significant differences were found in age, disease distribution, baseline performance status and cerebral metastases in relation to tobacco exposure. The ORR to first-line therapy were 50% and 90% between smokers and ever/never-smokers, respectively (p=0.032). The median overall survival (OS) was 29.1 months in ever/never-smokers (95%CI 23.5-34.6) versus 17.3 months in smokers (95%CI 4.8-29.7; p=0.0054). Never-smoking history (HR 0.543, 95%CI 0.41-0.80), limited stage disease (HR 0.56, 95%CI 0.40-0.91) and response to first line platinum based chemotherapy (HR 0.63, 95%CI 0.60-0.92) were independently related with good prognosis. Among ever/never smokers main genetic mutations were TP53 (80%), RB1 (40%), CYLD (30%), EGFR (30%), MET (20%), SMAD4 (20%) and BRIP1 (20%). None of the smokers had mutations in EGFR, MET or SMAD4, but there was a greater involvement in RB1 (80%, p=0.04), CDKN2A (30%, p=0.05), CEBPA (30%, p=0.05), FANCG (20%), GATA2 (20%), and PTEN (20%).

      Conclusion:
      Never-smokers with SCLC are increasingly prevalent and have a better prognosis than their smoker counterpart. EGFR, MET and SMAD4 are frequent mutations among SCLCs of ever/never smokers, and RB1, CDKN2A and CEBPA among smokers. Figure 1

      P1.02-055 - Genotyping Squamous Cell Lung Carcinoma Among Hispanics (Geno1.1-CLICaP) (ID 10166)

      Background:
      Lung squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most prevalent type of lung cancer. Currently, no targeted therapeutics are approved for treatment of this cancer subgroup, largely because of a lack understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of the disease. To characterize SCC genomic profile among Hispanics we tested diverse alterations using a validated next generation sequencing (NGS) platform.

      Method:
      We performed sequencing using a comprehensive NGS assay (TruSight Tumor 170) targeting the full coding regions of 170 cancer-related genes on 26 squamous cell lung cancer samples from Hispanic patients. PD-L1 expression in tumor cells (TCs) was assessed using clone 22C3 (Dako) and main clinical outcomes like progression free survival (PFS), overall response rate (ORR), and overall survival (OS) were recorded.

      Result:
      Median age was 67 years (range, 33-83), 53.8% were men and all patients had previous exposure to tobacco (former 69.2%/current 30.8%) with a mean consumption rate of 34-year package. Almost all patients (80.8%) received cisplatin or carboplatin plus gemcitabine as first line with an ORR of 61.5%, a median PFS of 12.0 months (95% CI 10.9-13.2) and OS of 24.8 months (95% CI 20.8-28.7). We found a relatively high prevalence of inactivating mutations in TP53 (61.5%), PIK3CA (34.6%), MLL2 (34.6%), KEAP1 (30.8%) and NOTCH1 (26.9%). In addition, genetic alterations in the NF1 (19.2%), RB1 (15.4%), STK11 (15.4%), SOX2 (11.5%), PTEN (7.7%), KRAS (3.8%) and HRAS (3.8%). Distribution of PD-L1 expression were: negative, 1%, 2-49% and ≥50% in 23.1%, 38.5%, 26.9% and 11.5%, respectively. None of the genetic alterations affected PFS, OS or ORR and PDL1 expression was lower among those who had mutations in TP53 (p=0.037) and PIK3CA (p=0.05).

      Conclusion:
      We identified previously described mutations among Hispanic patients with SCC. Lower PDL1 expression was also found among those who had alterations in TP53 and PIK3CA.Figure 1
