Gene Variant Detail

RB1 positive (unknown)

Relevant Treatment Approaches


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.

Molecular Profile Indication/Tumor Type Response Type Relevant Treatment Approaches Therapy Name Approval Status Evidence Type Efficacy Evidence References
RB1 positive Advanced Solid Tumor predicted - sensitive Ribociclib Phase I Actionable In a Phase I clinical trial, Kisqali (ribociclib) demonstrated safety and preliminary efficacy in patients with RB1-positive solid tumors and lymphomas, resulting in partial responses in 2.3% (3/132) of patients and stable disease in 32.6% (41/132) of patients, including 8 patients demonstrating stable disease for greater than 6 months (PMID: 27542767, PMID: 24795392). detail... 24795392 27542767
RB1 positive medulloblastoma sensitive Palbociclib Preclinical - Pdx Actionable In a preclinical study, Ibrance (palbociclib) inhibited Rb1 phosphorylation in tumor tissues and improved survival in patient-derived intracranial xenograft models of medulloblastoma (PMID: 27012813). 27012813
RB1 positive glioblastoma predicted - sensitive Palbociclib Preclinical - Cell line xenograft Actionable In a preclinical study, Ibrance (palbociclib) inhibited proliferation of RB1-proficient glioblastoma cell lines in culture and inhibited tumor growth in intracranial cell line xenograft models (PMID: 20354191). 20354191
RB1 positive breast cancer predicted - sensitive Paclitaxel + Palbociclib Phase I Actionable In a Phase I trial, alternating sequential treatment with Ibrance (palbociclib) and Taxol (paclitaxel) resulted in a median progression-free survival (mPFS) of 209 days in patients with Rb1-positive breast cancer, with a mPFS of 802 days and a clinical benefit rate of 55.6% (5/9) at the recommended phase II dose (PMID: 30635336; NCT01320592). 30635336
RB1 positive prostate cancer no benefit Palbociclib Phase II Actionable In a Phase II trial, addition of Ibrance (palbociclib) to androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) did not improve the rate of PSA less or equal to 4 ng/ml at 28 weeks (80%, 32/40 vs 80%, 16/20, p=0.87), PSA undetectable rate at 28 weeks (43% vs 50%, p=0.5), radiographic response rate (89% vs 89%), or 12-month biochemical progression-free survival (74% vs 69%, p=0.72) in patients with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer expressing Rb1 as confirmed by IHC (PMID: 33727260; NCT02059213). 33727260
RB1 positive Advanced Solid Tumor sensitive Dalpiciclib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, Dalpiciclib (SHR6390) inhibited CDK4/6-RB pathway signaling, leading to cell cycle arrest and inhibition of proliferation in a panel of RB1-positive tumor cell lines in culture, and tumor growth inhibition in cell line xenograft models (PMID: 30724426). 30724426
RB1 positive colon cancer sensitive Dalpiciclib Preclinical - Cell line xenograft Actionable In a preclinical study, Dalpiciclib (SHR6390) inhibited CDK4/6-RB pathway activation, leading to growth inhibition in an RB1-positive colon cancer cell line in culture, and tumor regression in a cell line xenograft model (PMID: 30724426). 30724426
