About PIK3CA and PTEN

Monoclonal antibody therapeutics that target the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) are new and often highly effective treatments for metastatic colorectal cancer and other aggressive cancers. Unfortunately, some patients do not benefit from these drugs because their cancers have mutations in genes within the EGFR pathway.  The American Society of Clinical Oncology has recommended that colorectal cancer patients who are candidates for anti-EGFR therapy should be tested for mutations in the gene K-RAS as patients with mutations in K-RAS do not benefit from these therapies.  Studies from Montefiore Medical Center and elsewhere have demonstrated that mutations in PIK3CA and PTEN can also cause anti-EGFR therapies to be ineffective.  A diagnostic panel that comprehensively tests all these genes has the potential to greatly improve the tailored use of these cancer treatments.
