Mutations in TP53, NOTCH1, and SF3B1 were analyzed in the CLL8 study evaluating first-line therapy with fludarabine and cyclophosphamide (FC) or FC with rituximab (FCR) among patients with untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). TP53, NOTCH1, and SF3B1 were mutated in 11.5%, 10.0%, and 18.4% of patients, respectively. NOTCH1(mut) and SF3B1(mut)(More)
Which genetic alterations drive tumorigenesis and how they evolve over the course of disease and therapy are central questions in cancer biology. Here we identify 44 recurrently mutated genes and 11 recurrent somatic copy number variations through whole-exome sequencing of 538 chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and matched germline DNA samples, 278 of(More)
We studied the incidences, associations, and prognostic roles of NOTCH1 and SF3B1 mutations (NOTCH1(mut), SF3B1(mut)) as compared with TP53(mut) in fludarabine-refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients treated with alemtuzumab in the CLL2H trial. We found NOTCH1(mut), SF3B1(mut), and TP53(mut) in 13.4%, 17.5%, and 37.4% of patients,(More)
