Associated Genetic Biomarkers
PIK3CA E545A is present in 0.24% of AACR GENIE cases, with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, cutaneous melanoma, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence .
PIK3CA E545A is a predictive biomarker for use of alpelisib and fulvestrant in patients.
Of the therapies with PIK3CA E545A as a predictive biomarker, 2 are FDA-approved and 2 have NCCN guidelines in at least one clinical setting.
Breast carcinoma has the most therapies targeted against PIK3CA E545A or its related pathways .
Alpelisib + Fulvestrant +
Breast Carcinoma -
Sample must match all of the following:
|Predicted Response: Primary Sensitivity|
|Clinical Setting(s): Metastatic (FDA, NCCN)|
|Note: Indicated for the treatment of postmenopausal women, and men, with HR-positive, HER2-negative, PIK3CA-mutated, advanced or metastatic breast cancer following progression on or after an endocrine-based regimen.|
PIK3CA E545A serves as an inclusion eligibility criterion in 1 clinical trial, of which 1 is open and 0 are closed. Of the trial that contains PIK3CA E545A as an inclusion criterion, 1 is phase 2 (1 open).
Trials with PIK3CA E545A in the inclusion eligibility criteria most commonly target non-small cell lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma, and colorectal adenocarcinoma .
Afatinib, cetuximab, docetaxel, durvalumab, and fulvestrant are the most frequent therapies in trials with PIK3CA E545A as an inclusion criteria .
Significance of PIK3CA E545A in Diseases
Breast Carcinoma +
PIK3CA is altered in 33.37% of breast carcinoma patients with PIK3CA E545A present in 0.17% of all breast carcinoma patients .
PIK3CA E545A is an inclusion criterion in 1 clinical trial for breast carcinoma, of which 1 is open and 0 are closed. Of the trial that contains PIK3CA E545A and breast carcinoma as inclusion criteria, 1 is phase 2 (1 open) .
Alpelisib and fulvestrant have evidence of efficacy in patients with PIK3CA E545A in breast carcinoma .
