OBJECTIVES Primary pulmonary salivary gland-type tumors (PSGTs) mainly comprise of mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) and adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC), which are rare and molecularly poorly understood. This study aimed to profile the molecular alterations of PSGTs via targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS). MATERIAL AND METHODS Immunohistochemistry was used to screen PSGTs in 32 patients and MAML2 and MYB rearrangements were detected using fluorescence in situ hybridization. 1021-Genepanel of targeted NGS was conducted to profile genomic mutations in all the PSGT patients. RESULTS Among the 32 patients, 25 had MEC and 7 had ACC. MAML2 and MYB rearrangements were detected in 80.0% (20/25) of the MEC and 71.4% (5/7) of the ACC patients. Among the MEC patients, 10 (40.0%) had ≥1 mutation, and 6 of them had 11 isolated mutations with abundance >5%, namely NFE2L2, MYOD1, INPP4B, CCND2, SNTG1, HSPD1, TGFBR1, RBM10, NOTCH4, ASXL1, and PTPRD mutations. The remaining 4 patients had 9 mutations with abundance <5%, namely KMT2A, PDCD11, FLT1, BRCA2, APC, SLX4, FOXP1, FGFR1, and HRAS mutations. All the ACC patients had mutations, which were enriched in 5 pathways including the PI3K and NOTCH pathways, chromatin and cytoskeleton remodeling, and DNA damage. These results explain PSGTs harbor distinct driver features of MAML2 or MYB rearrangement, accompanied with wide mutational diversity with very low rate of somatic mutation. Several important pathways, including the NOTCH and PI3K pathways, and chromatin remodeling could be targeted to improve the survival in patients with ACC.

Abstract Accurate diagnosis of salivary gland tumors can be challenging because of the many diagnostic entities, the sometimes extensive morphologic overlap, and the rarity of most tumor types. The current understanding of molecular rearrangements in salivary gland tumor pathology, emphasizes the prospects for exploiting molecular alterations in salivary gland tumors for diagnosis and targeted therapy. As new targeted therapies emerge, it will become increasingly vital to incorporate appropriate...

BACKGROUND: Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is an aggressive salivary gland malignancy without effective systemic therapies. Delineation of molecular profiles in ACC has led to an increased number of biomarker-stratified clinical trials; however, the clinical utility and U.S.-centric financial sustainability of integrated next-generation sequencing (NGS) in routine practice has, to our knowledge, not been assessed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In our practice, NGS genotyping was implemented at the disc...

: BACKGROUNDAdenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy arising in salivary glands and other sites, characterized by high rates of relapse and distant spread. Recurrent/metastatic (R/M) ACCs are generally incurable, due to a lack of active systemic therapies. To improve outcomes, deeper understanding of genetic alterations and vulnerabilities in R/M tumors is needed.METHODSAn integrated genomic analysis of 1,045 ACCs (177 primary, 868 R/M) was performed to identify alterations associated...

Mutations in the β-catenin gene (CTNNB1) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of some cancers. The recent development of cancer genome databases has facilitated comprehensive and focused analyses on the mutation status of cancer-related genes. We have used these databases to analyze the CTNNB1 mutations assembled from different tumor types. High incidences of CTNNB1 mutations were detected in endometrial, liver, and colorectal cancers. This finding agrees with the oncogenic role of aberrantl...

Abstract Introduction Primary pulmonary salivary gland-type tumors (p-SGTs) are rare, with poorly understood clinicopathological characteristics and survival. There are only few case reports or small case series, and factors associated with survival need to be identified. Methods A population cohort study was conducted using data from patients with histologically diagnosed primary p-SGTs in the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database between 1988 and 2013. Propensity-matching ...

CREBBP, encoding an acetyltransferase, is among the most frequently mutated genes in small cell lung cancer (SCLC), a deadly neuroendocrine tumor type. We report acceleration of SCLC upon Crebbp inactivation in an autochthonous mouse model. Extending these observations beyond the lung, broad Crebbp deletion in mouse neuroendocrine cells cooperated with Rb1/Trp53 loss to promote neuroendocrine thyroid and pituitary carcinomas. Gene expression analyses showed that Crebbp loss results in reduced ex...

ABSTRACTPulmonary adenoid cystic carcinoma is a rare and indolent lung malignancy, characterized by a protracted but unpredictable growth behavior. Currently, the treatment of PACC relies on surgery and local radiotherapy. However, treatment options for advanced PACC patients are limited. A larger number of studies demonstrated that advanced PACC patients obtained limited benefit from chemotherapy. Moreover, only a few case reports revealed PACC patients were candidates for target therapy. There...

: Wnt signaling pathway is one of the most important signaling pathways. The complexity of Wnt signals and their functional role is crucial in development and growth. It is the most active during embryogenesis facilitating new organism formation by cell differentiation, polarization and migration. Its activation is also common during development of many tumors and others diseases. In this review we shortly describe a role of Wnt pathway in development in order to better understand its role in ca...

ABSTRACTIntroduction: Primary mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MEC) of the lung are rare and represent a diagnostic challenge. MEC in the lung is under the umbrella of primary salivary gland type tumors of the lung.Areas covered: In general, salivary gland type tumors are represented by malignant neoplasms that may range from low to intermediate to high-grade type of malignancy sharing similar histopathological features as those in salivary glands. The focus in this review will be on one tumor in part...
