EGFR (CA)n genotype was L- and SS in 45 (40%) and 68( 60%) pts respectively. Ten (22%) out of 45 L- pts achieved response compared to 22 (33%) out of 67 SS pts (Fisher’s Exact test: p=0.617). No differences in PFS or OS were observed between L- and SS genotypes mPFS: 4.4 versus 5.3 mos, HR: 1.00 [95%CI: 0.67-1.51], p=0.991; mOS: 11.3 versus 14.2 mos, HR: 1.30 [95%CI: 0.80-2.22], p=0.261. We designed a prospective confirmatory study in KRAS and BRAF wild-type irinotecan-resistant mCRC patients treated with biweekly cetuximab and irinotecan in advanced lines. We defined S and L allelic variants those presenting < and ≥ 20 CA repeats, respectively. To detect a HR for PFS of 1.75 for L- compared to SS genotypes, estimating a prevalence of 60% of SS variant and setting a two-sided alfa=0.05 with a power of 80%, 104 events were required . Preclinical data suggest that the number of CA tandem repeats in EGFR intron 1 might affect gene transcription. Different retrospective studies have investigated the impact of the number of EGFR intron 1 CA repeats on the efficacy of cetuximab in mCRC patients, providing contrasting results. As reported below, different cut-off values were adopted to define polymorphic variants and patients with heterogeneous clinical and molecular characteristics were included. MAIN PATIENTS’ CHARACTERISTICS Other exploratory analyses adopting different cut-off values reported in literature led to similar results. Conclusions This prospective study, including a clinically homogenous and molecularly selected population, does not confirm any predictive or prognostic effect for EGFR (CA)n repeat allelic variants with respect to the efficacy of cetuximab and irinotecan in advanced lines of treatment. The present experience strengthens the need of prospectively challenging retrospective findings, to validate apparently promising biomarkers. carlottantoniotti@gmail.com
