Associated Genetic Biomarkers
ETS variant 5 (ETV5) is a gene that encodes a transcription factor protein that is a member of the ETS (E twenty-six) family. The protein binds to DNA containing sequences that contain the nucleotide sequence GGAA. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and urinary tract cancer.
ETV5 is altered in 0.19% of all cancers with squamous cell lung carcinoma and anal squamous cell carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations .
The most common alteration in ETV5 is ETV5 Amplification (0.09%) .
ETV5 status serves as an inclusion eligibility criteria in 1 clinical trial, of which 0 are open and 1 is closed. Of the trial that contains ETV5 status as an inclusion criterion, 1 is phase 2 (0 open).
Trials with ETV5 status in the inclusion eligibility criteria most commonly target adenocarcinoma of the gastroesophageal junction and gastric adenocarcinoma .
The most frequent alteration to serve as an inclusion eligibility criterion is ETV5 Expression .
Docetaxel and selumetinib are the most frequent therapies in trials with ETV5 as an inclusion criteria .
Significance of ETV5 in Diseases
Adenocarcinoma Of The Gastroesophageal Junction +
ETV5 is an inclusion criterion in 1 clinical trial for adenocarcinoma of the gastroesophageal junction, of which 0 are open and 1 is closed. Of the trial that contains ETV5 status and adenocarcinoma of the gastroesophageal junction as inclusion criteria, 1 is phase 2 (0 open) .
Gastric Adenocarcinoma +
ETV5 is an inclusion criterion in 1 clinical trial for gastric adenocarcinoma, of which 0 are open and 1 is closed. Of the trial that contains ETV5 status and gastric adenocarcinoma as inclusion criteria, 1 is phase 2 (0 open) .
