Title Significant benefit of everolimus in a patient with urothelial bladder cancer harboring a rare M1043I mutation of PIK3CA.
Abstract Text Urothelial bladder cancer (UBC) is a common malignancy with considerable mortality worldwide. However, the treatment options of UBC are mainly chemotherapy and immunotherapy, as few targeted agents have demonstrated efficacy against UBC. In recent studies, everolimus has exhibited antitumor activity in patients harboring aberrations in the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt)/ mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway in multiple tumor types. Herein, we report the case of a patient with metastatic UBC harboring a rare M1043I mutation of PIK3CA which was detected using DNA-based next-generation sequencing. The patient received everolimus as first-line therapy after palliative transurethral resection. The treatment resulted in complete response within 1 month, and the patient achieved a progression-free survival (PFS) of >6 months according to reports from the last follow-up visit. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of PIK3CA-mutant UBC for which everolimus therapy demonstrated a significant benefit suggesting that the rare M1043I mutation variant may be a potential biomarker of sensitivity to everolimus. Further insights into its mechanism and clinical studies are needed to clarify the effectiveness of everolimus therapy in patients with PIK3CA M1043I mutation.


  • 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.

PIK3CA M1043I PIK3CA amp bladder urothelial carcinoma predicted - sensitive Everolimus Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a clinical case study, a patient with metastatic urothelial bladder cancer harboring PIK3CA M1043I and PIK3CA amplification (copy number >20), as well as amplification of CCND1 and loss of CDKN2A and CDKN2B, was treated with Afinitor (everolimus) and achieved a complete response including remission of lymph node metastases, and remained progression-free at 6 months (PMID: 33745098). 33745098
