Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Screening
Name: Molecular profiling
Type: Other
Overall Status
This protocol is a screening protocol only. No drug intervention study will be included in this protocol. However, based on the molecular profiling, patients may be eligible for targeted agents. However, the molecular profiling doesn't guarantee the enrollment onto the clinical trial. Currently, the available drugs are AKT inhibitor, MEK inhibitor, Wee1 inhibitor, MET inhibitor. ATR inhibitor and other agents may be available in the context of clinical trials depending on the availability.
Detailed Description
To screen metastatic GC patients who failed or progressed on first-line chemotherapy. Patients will undergo biopsy of their tumor and will be analyzed using cancer panel/nanostring CNV and immunohistochemistry. This protocol is a screening protocol and informed consent form will be obtained again according to the biomarker profiled on this protocol if eligible. Informed consent will be obtained from patients with gastric adenocarcinoma and analysis of fresh tissue or archival FFPE at Samsung Medical Center will be performed. Patients who have prior to or completed or during the first-line chemotherapy (fluoropyramidine/platinum-based) will be eligible for screening.

After the analysis, pathologic and molecular biologic verification process about validity of the result will proceed. The biopsies will be performed before or after or during first-line treatment for molecular analysis. The patients who are screened through this protocol will undergo baseline biopsy before or after or during first-line therapy.
