Abstract

PURPOSE: The evaluation of plasma testing for the EGFR resistance mutation T790M in NSCLC patients has not been broadly explored. We investigated the detection of EGFR activating and T790M mutations in matched tumor tissue and plasma, mostly from patients with acquired resistance to first-generation EGFR inhibitors. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Samples were obtained from two studies, an observational study and a phase I trial of rociletinib, a mutant-selective inhibitor of EGFR that targets both activating mutations and T790M. Plasma testing was performed with the cobas EGFR plasma test and BEAMing. RESULTS: The positive percent agreement (PPA) between cobas plasma and tumor results was 73% (55/75) ..
