Kelsey Pan: Happy to share our analysis of NSCLC patients with germline EGFR mutations

Kelsey Pan, Heme/Onc Chief Fellow at MD Anderson Cancer Center, shared a post by Stephen V Liu, on X:

Happy to share our institutional analysis of NSCLC patients with germline EGFR mutations in JTO and JTO CRR with Xiuning Le.

  • Majority Caucasian, non-smoking, females, with family history of lung cancer
  • 21/22 with ‘second-hit’ EGFR somatic co-mutation (L858R in 50%). Tp53 co-mutation in 50%
  • Small multifocal ground glass nodules (73%)
  • Similar response to Osimertinib as somatic EGFRm population.

Quoting Stephen V Liu‘s post:

Description of NSCLC with germline EGFR mutations (mostly T790M) from Dr. Kelsey Pan JTO and JTO CRR (n=22). 86% female, 82% no smoking history, 59% +family history, 73% with multifocal ground glass pulmonary nodules. Respond as expected to osimertinib.
