Purpose:. Patients with SCLC rarely undergo biopsies at relapse. When pursued, tissue obtained can be inadequate for molecular testing, posing a challenge in identifying potentially targetable alterations in a clinically meaningful time frame. We examined the feasibility of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) testing in identifying potentially targetable alterations in SCLC. Experimental Design:. ctDNA test results were prospectively collected from patients with SCLC between 2014 and 2017 and analyzed. ctDNA profiles of SCLC at diagnosis and relapse were also compared. Results:. A total of 609 samples collected from 564 patients between 2014 and 2017 were analyzed. The median turnaround time for test results was 14 days. Among patients with data on
Metastatic non–small-cell lung cancer is still a devastating disease; however, treatment options have diversified dramatically in the past two decades. From unselected platinum-based chemotherapy for all patients, several different treatment groups have evolved, that is, those with "druggable" targets, those with a promising immune signature, and those without any predicting factors outlined in this article. Challenge includes the intersections between these groups and the optimal treatment path. These issues will be addressed in this review.
Purpose:. Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) have revolutionized cancer management. However, molecular determinants of response to ICIs remain incompletely understood. Experimental Design:. We performed genomic profiling of 78 patients with non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who underwent anti–PD-(L)1 therapies by both whole-exome and targeted next-generation sequencing (a 422-cancer-gene panel) to explore the predictive biomarkers of ICI response. Tumor mutation burden (TMB), and specific somatic mutations and copy-number alterations (CNA) were evaluated for their associations with immunotherapy response. Results:. We confirmed that high TMB was associated with improved clinical outcomes, and TMB quantified by gene panel strongly correlated w.
Purpose:. Several biomarkers have been individually associated with response to PD-1 blockade, including PD-L1 and tumor mutational burden (TMB) in non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and CD8 cells in melanoma. We sought to examine the relationship between these distinct variables with response to PD-1 blockade and long-term benefit. Experimental Design:. We assessed the association between baseline tumor characteristics (TMB, PD-L1, CD4, and CD8) and clinical features and outcome in 38 patients with advanced NSCLC treated with pembrolizumab (median follow-up of 4.5 years, range 3.8–5.5 years). Results:. PD-L1 expression and CD8 infiltration correlated with each other and each significantly associated with objective response rate (ORR) and pro.
Purpose:. Genomic analyses of small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) are limited by the availability of tumor specimens. This study aimed to investigate the suitability of single-cell sequencing of circulating tumor cells (CTC) as a method of inferring the evolution and progression of SCLCs. Experimental Design:. Between July 1, 2011, and July 28, 2014, 48 consecutively diagnosed patients with SCLC were recruited for this study. CTCs were captured from each patient with CellSearch system. Somatic mutations and copy number alterations (CNA) were monitored by single-cell sequencing of CTCs during chemotherapy. Results:. Single-cell sequencing of CTCs can provide a mutational atlas for SCLC. A 10-CNA score based on single CTCs was established as a classif.
Purpose:. To determine the tumor tissue/cell distribution, functional associations, and clinical significance of PD-1, LAG-3, and TIM-3 protein expression in human non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Experimental Design:. Using multiplexed quantitative immunofluorescence, we performed localized measurements of CD3, PD-1, LAG-3, and TIM-3 protein in >800 clinically annotated NSCLCs from three independent cohorts represented in tissue microarrays.
Purpose:. Complete and timely tissue genotyping is challenging, leading to significant numbers of patients with newly diagnosed metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (mNSCLC) being undergenotyped for all eight genomic biomarkers recommended by professional guidelines.
Purpose:. Lung metastasis is an important cause of breast cancer–related deaths, in which SDF-1/CXCR4 signaling pathway plays a critical role. Single transmembrane protein LRP6 is viewed as an oncogene via activating the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway. Our work aims to investigate the relationship between SDF-1/CXCR4 and LRP6 in breast cancer lung metastasis. Experimental Design:. We examined the expressions and functions of SDF-1/CXCR4 and LRP6 as well as their relationship in breast cancer in vitro and in vivo . Results:. LRP6 ectodomain (LRP6N) directly bound to CXCR4 and competitively prevented SDF-1 binding to CXCR4. LRP6N prevented SDF-1/CXCR4-induced metastasis to lung and prolonged survival in mice bearing breast tumors, whereas LRP6
