Analysis of MDM2 Amplification: Next-Generation Sequencing of Patients With Diverse Malignancies

Purpose MDM2 amplification can promote tumorigenesis directly or indirectly through p53 inhibition. MDM2 has increasing clinical relevance because inhibitors are under evaluation in clinical trials, and MDM2 amplification is a possible genomic correlate of accelerated progression, known as hyperprogression, after anti–PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapy. We used next-generation sequencing (NGS) to ascertain…
