Gene Variant Detail

VHL inact mut (loss of function)

Relevant Treatment Approaches mTORC1 Inhibitor VEGFR Inhibitor (Pan) VEGFR2 Inhibitor


  • 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.

VHL mutant renal cell carcinoma predicted - sensitive Sunitinib Phase I Actionable In a Phase I trial, 33% (6/18) of renal cell carcinoma patients harboring a VHL mutation, as determined from archived patient specimens, demonstrated a partial response when treated with Sutent (sunitinib) (PMID: 22105611). 22105611
VHL mutant renal cell carcinoma sensitive Everolimus Phase I Actionable In a Phase I study, Afinitor (everolimus), as compared to Apitolisib (GDC-0980), resulted in a greater progression free survival and overall survival in patients with renal cell carcinoma harboring VHL mutations (J Clin Oncol 32:5s, 2014 (suppl; abstr 4525)). detail...
VHL mutant renal cell carcinoma no benefit Unspecified VEGFR inhibitor Clinical Study - Meta-analysis Actionable In a meta-analysis of 6 clinical studies, VHL mutation status was not associated with overall response rate (relative risk=1.47, p=0.20), progression-free survival (HR=1.02, p=0.91), or overall survival (HR=0.80, p=0.21) in a total of 633 patients with renal cell carcinoma who received anti-VEGF therapies (PMID: 28103578). 28103578
VHL mutant islet cell tumor sensitive Belzutifan Guideline Actionable Welireg (belzutifan) is included in guidelines for patients with well-differentiated Grade 1/2 progressive pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors harboring germline VHL mutations ( detail...
