Abstract
The importance of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutation has been recognized in nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC), requiring the standardization of mutation screening system including the kind of samples. Here, we examined the EGFR mutation status in 61 pleural fluid samples from NSCLC cases using direct sequencing, nonenriched PCR, mutant-enriched PCR and peptide nucleic acid-locked nucleic acid (PNA-LNA) PCR clamp assay. The mutant-enriched PCR assay detected 16 mutant cases. Among them, the nonenriched PCR assay failed to detect 3 mutant cases. Regarding the discrepancy between mutant-enriched PCR and PNA-LNA PCR clamp assays, 3 cases of exon19-deletions were detected only by mutant-enriched PCR assay and no difference at the L858R mutation. There was no difference in results between direct sequencing and nonenriched PCR assay. We also correlated the EGFR mutation with clinical outcome of gefitinib-treated 29 cases. EGFR mutations were present in 10 cases, revealing 7 partial response and 3 no change (NC). In EGFR wild-type cases, 10 revealed NC and 9 progressive disease. The responders were significantly more frequent among the EGFR mutant cases than among the wild-type (p < 0.0001). Overall survival (p = 0.0092) and progression-free survival (p = 0.018) were significantly longer among the EGFR mutant cases than among the wild-type. In summary, we evaluated the utility of EGFR mutation screening in pleural fluid using 4 assays that showed some discrepancies arising from the designs of the assays. As clinical importance, the EGFR mutation status in pleural fluid can be a biomarker for the favorable outcome of gefitinib-treated NSCLC cases.
