Associated Genetic Biomarkers
NCI Definition: A common cancer characterized by the presence of malignant glandular cells. Morphologically, adenocarcinomas are classified according to the growth pattern (e.g., papillary, alveolar) or according to the secreting product (e.g., mucinous, serous). Representative examples of adenocarcinoma are ductal and lobular breast carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, renal cell carcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma (hepatoma), colon adenocarcinoma, and prostate adenocarcinoma. 
Adenocarcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, KRAS, APC, PIK3CA, and SMAD4 .
TP53 Mutation, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 c.142-c.212 Missense, TP53 c.1-c.137 Missense, and TP53 Missense are the most common alterations in adenocarcinoma .
There are 3 clinical trials for adenocarcinoma, of which 2 are open and 1 is completed or closed. Of the trials that contain adenocarcinoma as an inclusion criterion, 2 are phase 1 (1 open) and 1 is phase 2 (1 open).
Nivolumab and rucaparib are the most common interventions in adenocarcinoma clinical trials.
