We collected NGS sequencing data for patients with MET amplification in our institution from January 2018 to April 2019. The efficacy of crizotinib in MET amplification was retrospectively analyzed.
A total of 2694 patients received NGS tests, 3.27 % (82/2507) of patients had primary MET amplification, and acquired MET amplification accounted for 16.04 % (30/187) of re-biopsy patients. Only 19 patients received monotherapy with crizotinib. In survival analysis, ten patients with copy number greater than 4 (CN > 4) had longer median PFS (mPFS) (4.76 months; 95 %CI: 1.67-7.85 months) compared with other nine patients (CN ≤ 4) (2.10 months; 95 %CI: 1.53-2.68 months; P = 0.063), but failed to get a statistical significance. No significant differences were observed between median PFS (mPFS) of the patients with primary and acquired MET amplification (4.04 months vs 2.76 months; P = 0.310).
Primary and acquired MET amplification were detected in 3.27 % and 16.04 % of lung cancer patients, respectively. Patients with CN > 4 seemed to have longer PFS after crizotinib treatment. No significant differences in PFS were observed between patients with primary and acquired MET amplification.
