Supplemental Table S3 displays the Foundation Medicine 323 gene panel for hematological malignancies.





Enhancements in clinical-grade next-generation sequencing (NGS) have fueled the advancement of precision medicine in the clinical oncology field. Here, we survey the molecular profiles of 1,113 patients with diverse malignancies who successfully underwent clinical-grade NGS (236–404 genes) in an academic tertiary cancer center. Among the individual tumors examined, the majority showed at least one detectable alteration (97.2%). Among 2,045 molecular aberrations was the involvement of 302 distinct genes. The most commonly altered genes were TP53 (47.0%), CDKN2A (18.0%), TERT (17.0%), and KRAS (16.0%), and the majority of patients had tumors that harbored multiple alterations. Tumors displayed a median of four alterations (range, 0–29). Most individuals had at least one potentially actionable alteration (94.7%), with the median number of potentially actionable alterations per patient being 2 (range, 0–13). A total of 1,048 (94.2%) patients exhibited a unique molecular profile, with either genes altered or loci within the gene(s) altered being distinct. Approximately 13% of patients displayed a genomic profile identical to at least one other patient; although genes altered were the same, the affected loci may have differed. Overall, our results underscore the complex heterogeneity of malignancies and argue that customized combination therapies will be essential to optimize cancer treatment regimens.
