Objectives The T790M and C797S mutations of the epidermal growth factor receptor gene (EGFR) confer resistance to first- and third-generation EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), respectively, in patients with non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) harboring activating mutations of EGFR. C797S has been identified in cis or in trans with T790M in tumor specimens from patients who experienced treatment failure with first- and third-generation EGFR-TKIs. The allelic relation between T790M and activating mutations of EGFR has not been well characterized, however. We have now developed a digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR)–based method for determination of the allelic relation between two types of EGFR mutation (T790M and either C797S or an activating mutation). Materials and Methods Seven clinical NSCLC specimens and two NSCLC cell lines harboring both an activating mutation and T790M were analyzed with this new method to identify the allelic relation between these EGFR mutations. Results The median ratio of the number of alleles positive for both an activating mutation and T790M to the number of T790M-positive alleles was 97.1% (range, 90.0–100%). Confirmatory analysis by next-generation sequencing yielded a corresponding value of 96.7% (range, 89.1–99.5%). Our dPCR method thus reliably identifies the allelic relation between two EGFR mutations in a quantitative manner. Conclusions Almost all T790M mutations were detected in cis with activating mutations of EGFR regardless of the de novo or acquired status of T790M, with cancer cells harboring T790M and activating mutations on the same allele appearing to be selected and enriched during EGFR-TKI treatment.
