Abstract Text This phase II study assessed the safety and efficacy of everolimus, an oral mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitor in advanced transitional carcinoma cell (TCC) after failure of platinum-based therapy.Thirty-seven patients with advanced TCC received everolimus 10 mg/day until progressive disease (PD) or unacceptable toxicity. The primary end point was the disease control rate (DCR), defined as either stable disease (SD), partial response (PR), or complete response at 8 weeks. Angiogenesis-related proteins were detected in plasma and changes during everolimus treatment were analyzed. PTEN expression and PIK3CA mutations were correlated to disease control.Two confirmed PR and eight SD were observed, resulting in a DCR of 27% at 8 weeks. Everolimus was well tolerated. Compared with patients with noncontrolled disease, we observed in patients with controlled disease a significant higher baseline level of angiopoietin-1 and a significant early plasma decrease in angiopoietin-1, endoglin, and platelet-derived growth factor-AB. PTEN loss was observed only in patients with PD.Everolimus showed clinical activity in advanced TCC. The profile of the plasma angiogenesis-related proteins suggested a role of the everolimus antiangiogenic properties in disease control. PTEN loss might be associated with everolimus resistance.


  • 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.

PTEN loss transitional cell carcinoma predicted - resistant Everolimus Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a Phase II trial, 57% (8/14) of transitional cell carcinoma patients that demonstrated uncontrolled disease after treatment with Afinitor (everolimus) harbored PTEN loss, while 0% (0/6) of patients with controlled disease demonstrated evidence of PTEN loss (PMID: 22473592). 22473592
