  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (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 a longer phrase which contains spaces "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.

PTEN mutant gastrointestinal system cancer decreased response Pembrolizumab Clinical Study - Cohort Actionable In a retrospective analysis, patients with MSI high, dMMR gastrointestinal tumors including gastric (n=18), colorectal (n=17), cholangiocarcinoma (n=5), small intestine (n=2), pancreatic (n=2), and duodenal cancer (n=1) harboring PTEN mutations demonstrated a decreased objective response rate (21.4 vs 54.8%), overall survival (15.2 vs 25.7 mo), and progression-free survival (4.3 vs 15.6 mo) compared to PTEN-wild-type patients when treated with Keytruda (pembrolizumab) or Opdivo (nivolumab) (PMID: 33926917). 33926917
