Study Description

HIPO project: HIPO_021 Importance: Chordomas are rare tumors of the axial skeleton and skull base with few therapeutic options and no clinically validated molecular drug targets. The value of comprehensive genomic analyses for guiding medical therapy of patients with advanced-stage chordoma is unknown.Objective: To identify therapeutically tractable genetic lesions in a cohort of chordoma patients within a genomics-guided precision oncology program and to document the outcome of individualized, molecularly targeted chordoma therapy.Design, Setting, and Participants: We performed whole-exome sequencing of tumor and matched germline control samples from seven patients with locally advanced or metastatic chordoma who were enrolled in a cross-institutional molecular stratification registry trial for younger adults with advanced-stage cancer across all histologies and patients with rare tumors. All patients were heavily pretreated and had progressive disease prior to molecular analysis.Interventions: Individualized medical therapy was administered according to the patients’ molecular ...

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Case series of the rare tumor entity chordoma. 9 cases sequenced with Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) and 2 cases sequenced with Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) were recruited from the personalized oncology program NCT-MASTER/DKTK-MASTER at the German Cancer Research Center. One of the WES patients was re-sequenced at a later time point when he relapsed, this resequencing was done by WGS. Therefore there are 11 patients, one of which with two samples, all of which were sequenced with matched normal ... (Show More)
