Title Case Report: Olaparib Shows Satisfactory Clinical Outcomes Against Small Cell Esophageal Carcinoma With ATM Mutation.

Abstract Text Small cell esophageal carcinoma (SCEC) is a rare, undifferential type of cancer, with a high degree of malignancy and early systemic metastasis. Radio-chemotherapy and surgery have been used as the primary treatment strategies for SCEC, but they both result in poor prognosis. There is need to develop an optimal standard treatment for the disease to improve prognosis and limit the related mortality. In this study, we described identification of driver mutations in ATM, a gene involved in homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) pathway, using next-generation sequencing on primary lesion and peripheral blood of a SCEC patient, who experienced recurrence after resection and radio-chemotherapy. In addition, we subjected the patient to olaparib, a PARP inhibitor, for the treatment of tumor with HRD and obtained a partial response. This is the first evidence implicating olaparib in successful treatment of SCEC with ATM mutation. The findings suggest that targeting mutations in HRD genes using olaparib or actionable genetic mutations using corresponding drugs, may be an effective therapeutic option for SCEC, although this requires further investigation.


  • 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.
