      Although human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2, ERBB2) genomic aberration has been identified as therapeutic targets, clinical trials of HER2-directed therapies have disappointing results in lung cancer. We hypothesize that the concurrent alterations might be one of the reasons, thus the aim of this study was to describe frequent concurrent alterations in Chinese lung cancer patients harboring HER2 mutations.

      A total of 147 cancer patients with HER2 mutations were enrolled in the study. Tumor biopsy, ctDNA and pleural effusion samples were collected for detection alterations using hybridization capture based next-generation sequencing (NGS), which enables the simultaneous detection of single-nucleotide variants, insertions/deletions, rearrangements, and copy-number alterations of at least 59 genes (59-1021).

      Sixty-two of 147 patients with HER2 genomic aberrations were diagnosed as lung cancer. The HER2 gene was amplified in 11 (18%) patients, whereas HER2 mutations were detected in 48 patients, co-occurrence of HER2 amplification and mutations were in 3 patients. Thirty of the 62 patients (48.39%) had concurrent actionable mutations across 18 genes, which involved in RTK-PIK3CA-mTOR signaling pathways, cell-cycle pathway, DNA repair pathway, RAS-RAF-MAPK pathway and some others (details in table). Moreover, 7 patients had more than 2 concurrent mutations besides HER2 mutation/amplification.

      Concurrent of actionable genetic alterations in HER2-altered Chinese lung cancer patients was common. The complex molecular profiles elucidate the importance of comprehensive analysis of genetic mutations when considering anti-HER2 targeted therapy.
