ACKGROUND: The prognostic value of primary tumor location (PTL) in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) was reported by recent analyses in RAS wild-type patients. Here, we investigated the prognostic value of PTL in RAS mutated mCRC patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: PTL was defined as left or right if distal or proximal to the splenic flexure. Primary endpoint was overall survival (OS) according to PTL. Subgroup analyses were conducted according to time to metastases and RAS mutation subtypes. RESULTS: Five hundred sixty-four patients were included. Left- and right-sided cases were 65% and 35%, respectively. No difference in OS was detected according to PTL (hazard ratio [HR] = 0.99, p = .964). No difference in OS was observed in right versus left when looking at synchronous (HR 0.92, p = .557) or metachronous (HR 1.07, p = .807) patients. CONCLUSION: No OS difference was detected in RAS mutated mCRC. Molecular and clinical features able to improve prognosis and treatment strategies in this setting are needed

Abstract

ACKGROUND: The prognostic value of primary tumor location (PTL) in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) was reported by recent analyses in RAS wild-type patients. Here, we investigated the prognostic value of PTL in RAS mutated mCRC patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: PTL was defined as left or right if distal or proximal to the splenic flexure. Primary endpoint was overall survival (OS) according to PTL. Subgroup analyses were conducted according to time to metastases and RAS mutation subtypes. RESULTS: Five hundred sixty-four patients were included. Left- and right-sided cases were 65% and 35%, respectively. No difference in OS was detected according to PTL (hazard ratio [HR] = 0.99, p = .964). No difference in OS was observed in right versus left when looking at synchronous (HR 0.92, p = .557) or metachronous (HR 1.07, p = .807) patients. CONCLUSION: No OS difference was detected in RAS mutated mCRC. Molecular and clinical features able to improve prognosis and treatment strategies in this setting are needed
