Title Long lasting response to the multikinase inhibitor bay 43-9006 (Sorafenib) in a heavily pretreated metastatic thymic carcinoma.
Abstract Text Metastatic thymic carcinoma is an aggressive neoplasm for which multimodal therapies are often ineffective. We describe here a heavily pretreated patient with advanced thymic carcinoma responsive to multikinases inhibitor BAY 43-9006 (Sorafenib). Of note, a hitherto unreported c-kit missense mutation on exon 17 (D820E) identified in tumor cells seems to explain the clinical response and highlight the key role of molecular analysis in predicting efficacy of targeted therapies even in thymic neoplasms.


  • 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.
