      • Slides


      Non-small cell lung cancers with common epidermal-growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations (exon 19 deletion and exon 21-point mutation L858R) are known to greatly benefit from EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). However, much less is known about the treatment responses of EGFR mutations such as L861Q, G719X and double EGFRmut+ carriers. In this study, we report clinicopathological and treatment outcomes of patients harboring such EGFR mutations and treated with EGFR-TKIs.

      Between 2009 – 2015, 233 EGFRmut+ NSCLC patients treated at two Alberta-based cancer centres, Tom Baker Cancer Centre (Calgary) and Cross Cancer Institute (Edmonton) were screened retrospectively via the provincial cancer registry and the Glans-Look Lung Cancer Database. Clinicopathological and treatment outcomes were analyzed. Overall survival was assessed using the Kaplan-Meier method and compared using the log-rank test. Outcomes of single versus double EGFRmut+ carrier sub-groups were compared using Fisher’s Exact test.

      42/233 (18%) patients harbored uncommon EGFR mutations: 14/42 (33%) carried single rare EGFRmut+ and 11/42 (26%) carried double EGFRmut+, meanwhile 41% couldn’t be specified. Most frequently detected uncommon single EGFR mutations were G719X (12%) and L861Q (17%). Table 1 summarizes clinical characteristics and TKI efficacy amongst uncommon EGFR mutations. Compared to single EGFR mutants, double EGFR mutation carriers were older (median age 71yrs vs 69 yrs), have a smoking-history (73% vs 50%), experienced longer median OS and PFS (15 and 12 months p < 0.001, vs. 9 and 3 months p = 0.0014 respectively), and were also more likely to continue with a TKI beyond initial-TKI-PD (82% vs 28%).

      Retrospective real-world data illustrating the experience and outcomes of uncommon EGFR mutation carriers was explored in this study. Additionally, our results, although limited by cohort-size, highlights that tumor responses from TKI treatments vary amongst uncommon EGFRmut+ carriers, with most favorable survival responses observed in double EGFR mutants.
