Recurrent PTPRT/JAK2 mutations in lung adenocarcinoma among African Americans

Lung cancer etiology has largely been studied in homogenous populations of European descent. Here, targeted sequencing in African American lung adenocarcinomas finds significantly higher prevalence of PTPRTand JAK2 mutations, validated independently by whole exome sequencing, highlighting potentially clinically actionable mutations in this population.
