Small Cell Carcinoma
Associated Genetic Biomarkers
NCI Definition: A neuroendocrine carcinoma composed of small malignant cells which are often said to resemble "oat cells" under the microscope. Small cell carcinoma most often affects the lungs. Clinically, this is often a rapidly growing cancer that spreads to distant sites early. 
Small cell carcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, RB1, KMT2D, CREBBP, and PTEN .
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 small cell carcinoma .
There are 2 clinical trials for small cell carcinoma, of which 2 are open and 0 are completed or closed. Of the trials that contain small cell carcinoma as an inclusion criterion, 1 is phase 2/phase 3 (1 open) and 1 is phase 3 (1 open).
Carboplatin, cisplatin, and doxorubicin are the most common interventions in small cell carcinoma clinical trials.
