Abstract Text There is growing interest in defining the somatic mutations associated with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). Unfortunately, a serious blockade to genomic analyses of this disease is a limited access to tumors because surgery is rarely performed. We used our clinical/pathologic database of SCLC patients to determine the availability of biopsy specimens that could be used for genomic studies and to identify tumors for initial oncogene analysis.DNA was extracted from six tumors, three primary and three metastatic, and analyzed by SEQUENOM platform technology.Primary-resected tumor tissue represents less than 3% of all diagnostic specimens in this disease, highlighting the limited access to tissue sufficient for comprehensive genomic analyses. We identified an activating M918T RET somatic mutation in a metastatic SCLC tumor specimen. Bioinformatic search identified RET mutations in other SCLC studies. Stable overexpression of both mutant M918T and wild-type RET in two SCLC cell lines, H1048 and SW1271, activated ERK signaling, MYC expression, and increased cell proliferation, particularly by mutant RET. Stable cells became sensitized to the RET tyrosine kinase inhibitors, vandetanib and ponatinib. Further analysis of RET mRNA expression in SCLC revealed wide variability in both cells and tumors, and SCLC cells demonstrated significantly higher RET expression compared with adenocarcinoma lung cells.Our data suggest that a subpopulation of SCLC patients may derive benefit from tyrosine kinase inhibitors targeting RET. Coupled with the presence of RET fusion proteins in non-small-cell lung cancer, our data indicate an emerging role for RET in SCLC.

Filtering

  • 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"

Sorting

  • 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.
