Study Description

High-grade serous ovarian cancer exhibits extensive intratumoral heterogeneity coupled with widespread intraperitoneal disease. Despite this, metastatic spread of tumor clones is non-random, implying the existence of local microenvironmental factors that shape tumor progression. We interrogated the molecular interface between tumorinfiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) and cancer cells in 143 samples from 21 patients using whole-genome sequencing, immunohistochemistry, histologic image analysis, gene expression profiling, and T- and B-cell receptor sequencing. We identify 3 immunologic response categories, which frequently co-exist within individual patients. Furthermore, epithelial CD8+ TIL were inversely associated with malignant cell diversity, evidenced by subclonal neoepitope elimination and spatial tracking between tumor and T-cell clones. Intersecting mutational signatures and immune analysis showed that foldback inversion genomic aberrations lead to worse outcomes even in the presence of cytotoxic TIL (n=433). Thus, regional variation in immune contexture mirrors the pattern of ... (Show More)

Each tumor sample was cut into three pieces, yielding two end-pieces for cryovials and a middle portion placed in 10% buffered formalin. End pieces were homogenized manually and with a paddle blender (Stomacher). All paraffin-embedded blocks, including formalin-fixed tumor samples and molecular-fixed fallopian tubes, were sectioned and stained with hematoxylin and eosin prior to expert histopathological review to confirm the presence of high grade serous carcinoma. Homogenized end pieces were ... (Show More)

A total of 192 positions per patient were deeply sequenced in each corresponding tumor sample (including 4 experimental controls and SNVs predicted to originate at each node of the sample phylogeny, see Zhang et al. for details). Genomic DNA templates were used as starting material to generate PCR products. PCR was set up using Phusion DNA polymerase according to the manufacturer’s specifications. The standard PCR conditions used were an initial denaturation at 98C for 30 seconds, followed by ... (Show More)
