|FGFR1||AMP||CNA||Adenosquamous Cell Lung Cancer||Pazopanib||IV||1|
Patient diagnosed with metastatic squamous cell lung cancer had high-level amplification of FGFR1 and high expression of MYC. Patient was treated with 400 mg pazopanib twice a day. CT taken four and eight weeks after start of pazopanib showed tumor regression and cavitation. Due to side effects, patient stopped taking pazopanib after 6 months. No clinical or radiologic signs of tumor progression were present at that time.
Gene name Full name
fibroblast growth factor receptor 1Gene type
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) family, where amino acid sequence is highly conserved between members and throughout evolution. FGFR family members differ from one another in their ligand affinities and tissue distribution. A full-length representative protein consists of an extracellular region, composed of three immunoglobulin-like domains, a single hydrophobic membrane-spanning segment and a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase domain. The extracellular portion of the protein interacts with fibroblast growth factors, setting in motion a cascade of downstream signals, ultimately influencing mitogenesis and differentiation. This particular family member binds both acidic and basic fibroblast growth factors and is involved in limb induction. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Pfeiffer syndrome, Jackson-Weiss syndrome, Antley-Bixler syndrome, osteoglophonic dysplasia, and autosomal dominant Kallmann syndrome 2. Chromosomal aberrations involving this gene are associated with stem cell myeloproliferative disorder and stem cell leukemia lymphoma syndrome. Alternatively spliced variants which encode different protein isoforms have been described; however, not all variants have been fully characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
