Associated Genetic Biomarkers
MGMT is altered in 0.05% of all cancers with conventional glioblastoma multiforme, melanoma, adenocarcinoma of unknown primary, astrocytoma, and bladder urothelial carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations .
The most common alterations in MGMT are MGMT Mutation (0.46%), MGMT *239S (0.07%), MGMT A82V (0.07%), MGMT E197K (0.07%), and MGMT G162* (0.07%) .
MGMT status serves as an inclusion eligibility criteria in 3 clinical trials, of which 3 are open and 0 are closed. Of the trials that contain MGMT status as an inclusion criterion, 3 are phase 2 (3 open).
Trials with MGMT status in the inclusion eligibility criteria most commonly target glioblastoma, gliosarcoma, anaplastic astrocytoma, colorectal adenocarcinoma, and colorectal carcinoma .
The most frequent alterations to serve as inclusion eligibility criteria are MGMT Promoter Methylation Negative, MGMT Promoter Methylation Positive, MGMT Deficient Expression, MGMT Expression, and MGMT Overexpression .
Radiation therapy, temozolomide, nivolumab, ipilimumab, and pembrolizumab are the most frequent therapies in trials with MGMT as an inclusion criteria .
