      P1.01-85 - The Prevalence of Different EGFR exon20 Mutations in 12,833 Chinese Lung Cancer Patients (ID 14141)

      Mutations in EGFR exon20 are relatively rare in lung cancers compared to L858R/exon19 mutations, some of which have shown sensitivity to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), and have been actively tested in clinical trials. However, due to the high-variety of EGFR exon20 alterations, it becomes increasingly difficult for their functional studies in related to clinical practice.

      We retrospectively screened 12,833 Chinese lung cancer patients that have underwent genotyping on their tumor and/or liquid biopsy samples using targeted next-generation sequencing between 2014 and 2017 for EGFR exon20 mutations as well as other concurrent EGFR mutations in the same patient.

      A total of 442 patients (3.4%) were found harboring 493 different EGFR exon20 variations, among which 49 patients (11%) carried more than one exon20 mutations. The frequencies of the most prevalent alterations were summarized in Table 1. 18% of these mutations have concurrent TKI-sensitive mutations L858R or exon19 deletion. In-frame deletion/insertions (delins or ins) and missense mutations were identified at a frequency of 53% and 47%, respectively. The short delins/ins occurred between 763~773 residues, while missense mutations dwelled at 768~820 residues, suggesting that these two types of alterations have their own manners for regulating EGFR kinase domain function. The most prevalent insertion is p.M766delinsMASV, occurred in 15.2% of all patients. Meanwhile, the diversity of inserted peptides at p.D770 and p.D771 positions is much higher than other positions with a total of 17 and 19 different insertion peptides composed of 1-5 amino acids, respectively. Missense mutations at S768 were detected in 20.4% of patients, but 60% of them were accompanied by mutations at G719. table 1.jpg

      This is the largest cohort of Chinese lung cancers for studying EGFR exon 20 mutations, which should be informative for functional studies, the design of targeted drugs, and the testing for existing therapies.
