Associated Genetic Biomarkers

Overview

NCI Definition: A carcinoma arising from malignant squamous bronchial epithelial cells and characterized by the presence of keratinization and/or intercellular bridges. Cigarette smoking and arsenic exposure are strongly associated with squamous cell lung carcinoma. [1]

Squamous cell lung carcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, CDKN2A, PIK3CA, KMT2D, and NFE2L2 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Squamous Cell Lung Carcinoma

TP53 Mutation, TP53 Missense, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, KMT2D Mutation, and CDKN2A Mutation are the most common alterations in squamous cell lung carcinoma [2].
