|Title||Identification of I1171N resistance mutation in ALK-positive non-small-cell lung cancer tumor sample and circulating tumor DNA.|
|Abstract Text||Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-rearranged non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is sensitive to ALK inhibitor therapy, but resistance invariably develops and can be mediated by certain secondary mutations. The detection of these mutations is useful to guide treatment decisions, but tumors are not always easily accessible to re-biopsy. We report the case of a patient with ALK-rearranged NSCLC who presented acquired resistance to crizotinib and then alectinib. Sequencing analyses of DNA from a liver metastasis biopsy sample and circulating tumor DNA both found the same I1171N ALK kinase domain mutation, known to confer resistance to certain ALK inhibitors. However, the patient then received ceritinib, a 2nd generation ALK inhibitor, and achieved another partial response. This case underlines how ALK resistance mutation detection in peripheral blood could be a reliable, safer, and less invasive alternative to tissue-based samples in NSCLC.|

|ALK||I1171N||missense||gain of function||ALK I1171N lies within the protein kinase domain of the Alk protein (UniProt.org). I1171N results in increased ligand-independent Alk phosphorylation and activation of the Stat pathway in culture (PMID: 23239810, PMID: 21838707), activation in in vitro assays (PMID: 33674381, PMID: 25517749), is transforming in cell culture (PMID: 23239810, (PMID: 33674381, PMID: 25517749), and has been demonstrated to occur as a secondary resistance mutation in the context of ALK fusions (PMID: 27565911).||Y|
