In this study we performed ultra deep sequencing of genes associated with anti-EGFR resistance, such as KRAS, BRAF, PIK3CA, and EGFR in 17 plasma-DNA samples from a total of 10 patients treated with anti-EGFR therapy.
In this study we performed whole genome sequencing of plasma DNA (plasma-Seq) of 19 plasma-DNA samples from a total of 10 patients treated with anti-EGFR therapy. We demonstrated that development of resistance to anti-EGFR therapies is frequently associated with focal amplifications of KRAS, MET, and ERBB2. We also showed that focal KRAS amplifications can be acquired in tumor genomes of patients under cytotoxic chemotherapy. Furthermore, we provide evidence that specific chromosomal ... (Show More)
