EP1.01-24 - Lung Adenocarcinoma: Mutational Profile in Ever Smokers and Non-Smokers Patients (ID 2847)
08:00 - 18:00 | Author(s): Catarina Marques
Lung cancer occurring in never-smokers had become a distinct entity. This study aims to evaluate the mutational profile in ever smokers and non-smokers patients with pulmonary adenocarcinoma.Method
Retrospective analysis (Oct-2016 to Aug-2017) of patients diagnosed with pulmonary adenocarcinoma in our pulmonology department.
Next generation sequencing (NGS) was used to identify different mutations and translocations. Pathological variants of genes and variants of uncertain clinical significance were included.Result
60 patients were enrolled in this study: 18 (30%) non-smokers and 42 (70%) ever smokers.
In 72.2% of non-smokers and 57.1% of ever smokers were identified at least one mutation. Despite this, ever smokers had an overall higher frequency of mutations (72.6% vs 27.4%) because many patients had concomitant mutations.
Although not statistically significant, ever smokers had more mutations that are variants of uncertain clinical significance (40% vs 23.5%; p=0,227)

Although not statistically significant, smokers and non-smokers appear to have a different mutational profile. Smokers have a higher rate of concomitant mutations, although some of them are variants of uncertain clinical significance. NGS will help to increase knowledge about the mutational profile in these patients.
