Abstract 1020


Metastatic CC prognosis remains poor. Molecular characterisation (MC) allows better understanding of the mutations (mut) driving carcinogenesis or treatment resistance. We report the cervical tumour MC of pts in a P1 unit and its clinical implications.


CC pts referred to the P1 unit of The Royal Marsden Hospital from 2011-18 underwent tumour molecular profiling using OncoCartaTM (Sequenom), TruSeq® Cancer Amplicon (Illumina), GeneReadTM custom DNA damage (Qiagen) or FoundationOne® panel. Retrospective data was extracted from electronic medical records.


Of the 37 pts (median age: 34.7 years) analysed, 45.9% had squamous histology, and 37.8% were FIGO stage 2 at diagnosis; 34 different pathogenic mut were identified with 70.3% of pts having mut. PIK3CA mut were the most common (32.4%), followed by KRAS (13.5%), APC (8.1%), TP53 (8.1%), PTEN (5.4%), KDR (5.4%), ATM (5.4%), STK11 (5.4%) and BRCA1 (5.4%). 40.5% (15/37) patients had a potentially actionable mutation. Median overall survival (mOS) was 36 months (mo) in study population, 33 mo in KRAS mut, 40 mo in PIK3CA mut, 52 mo in APC mut and 40 mo in the mut-negative group; however, this difference was not statistically significant. In the KRAS mut group, 60% were adenocarcinoma and 40% adenosquamous. All KRAS mut pts had FIGO stage 2/3 at diagnosis. 80% had visceral metastasis when referred to the P1 unit; whereas in the PIK3CA mut group, tumour histologies were 33.3% squamous, 25% adenocarcinoma, 25% adenosquamous, 8.3% mucinous, 8.3% uncommon histologies. In the PIK3CA mut group, 75% were stage 1/2 at diagnosis, and 41.6% had visceral metastasis when referred. 5.4% (2/37) of pts were allocated to a P1 trial based on the finding of a PIK3CA mut with a mOS of 40 mo compared to 36 mo for the total population (p = 0.6). One pt received an AKT inhibitor (i) but developed progressive disease (PD) after 3 cycles; the other received a PI3K i with PD after 4 cycles.


Our study corroborates existing knowledge of the association between KRAS mut and adenocarcinoma histology in CC which confers worse prognosis. The high rate of potentially actionable mut indicates the increasing scope for targeted treatment trials in CC, thus prompting early MC which may improve pt allocation to P1 trials.
