Survival of metastatic colon cancer (mCC) patients has considerably improved with optimization of new drugs regimen. Inactivation of TP53 pathway by TP53 mutations is observed in nearly half of colorectal tumors. The impact of such mutations has been poorly studied in the metastatic setting.
The files of 254 mCC treated in a single institution at Saint-Louis hospital between January 1999 and April 2011 were retrospectively reviewed. Tissue samples for analysis of TP53 mutations were available for 68 patients, performed using FASAY. The prognostic value of TP53 status was evaluated by comparing progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in the group of TP53-mutated and wild type patients.
PFS was 6.9 months and OS 21.7 months in the whole population. There was no statistical difference in TP53-mutated and wild type groups in term of PFS (HR = 1.04; IC9 5% = 0.6–1.79) and OS (HR = 0.99; IC 95% = 0.53–1.55) whatever the chemotherapy regimen (oxaliplatin- or irinotecan-based). Only BRAF V600 mutation was demonstrated to be a poor prognostic factor for PFS and OS, and CEA level for OS.
Routine determination of TP53 mutations, even with a highly sensitive method, cannot be recommended to predict chemotherapy response in mCC.
