P020 - Characterization of Met Exon 14 Skipping and Association with Clinical Outcomes of Crizotinib in Chinese Lung Cancers (ID 192)
00:00 - 00:00 | Author(s): C. Zhou
Mesenchymal-to-epithelia transition (MET) exon 14 skipping (METex14) has been recognized as a potential driver alteration in lung cancers, and represents an emerging molecular target for lung cancer treatment. However, most studies about patient characterization and clinical outcomes of METex14-positive lung cancer were conducted in Caucasians, relevant data in Chinese patients were lacking. Here, we retrospectively characterized the clinical and molecular features of patients harboring MET mutations causing exon 14 skipping in a large cohort of Chinese lung cancers, and interrogated relevant clinical parameters associated with clinical outcomes of crizotinib treatment.
Genomic profiling data obtained from either plasma or tissue of 7,507 lung cancer patients with various histological types were screened to identify patients harboring METex14.
A total of 68 patients (0.91%), different from the frequency of Western population (3%), were identified to carry DNA alterations predicted to cause METex14 with a median age of 67.5, which is statistically significantly older than the whole cohort (p<0.001, t-test). In addition, METex14 has a female predominance (p=0.036, Fisher
