Title FGFR2-BICC1: A Subtype Of FGFR2 Oncogenic Fusion Variant In Cholangiocarcinoma And The Response To Sorafenib.
Journal OncoTargets and therapy
Vol 12
Date 2019
Abstract Text Fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) family includes four highly conserved receptor tyrosine kinases. Particularly, FGFR2 has been identified as a potential target for tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) treatment. Except for immunohistochemistry and fluorescence in situ hybridization, next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology represents a novel tool for FGFR2 detection that covers a wide range of fusion genes. In the present work, we present a case of cholangiocarcinoma who had FGFR2-BICC1 rearrangement detected by NGS. A 76-year-old female diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma underwent four cycles of chemotherapy. The NGS assay showed that the tumor had a FGFR2-BICC1 rearrangement. The patient had a favorable tumor response to sorafenib. Herein, we report the first case with cholangiocarcinoma harboring FGFR2-BICC1 who is sensitive to sorafenib therapy.


  • 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.
