Abstract OBJECTIVE: Resistance to trastuzumab is a problem that remains to be solved in HER2-positive breast cancer. We aimed to characterize profiles of genetic and epigenetic alterations in cancer-related pathways in HER2-positive breast cancers, using biopsy tissue samples obtained from patients enrolled in a prospective neoadjuvant clinical trial. METHODS: HER2-positive breast cancer tissue samples were collected and processed with the PAXgene Tissue System. A total of 24 breast cancers were analyzed. Genetic alterations of 409 cancer-related genes were analyzed by a bench-top next-generation sequencer. DNA methylation statuses were analyzed by a bead array with 485,512 probes. RESULTS: The WNT pathway was potentially activated by aberrant methylation of its negative regulators, such as DKK3 and SFRP1, in 9 breast cancers. The AKT/mTOR pathway was activated by mutations of PIK3CA in 5 breast cancers. The Notch pathway was potentially activated by mutations of NOTCH1 and NOTCH2 in 4 breast cancers. The p53 pathway was inactivated by mutations of TP53 in 13 breast cancers and potentially by aberrant methylation of its downstream genes in 10 breast cancers. Cell adhesion was affected by mutations of CDH1 in 1 breast cancer. CONCLUSION: Genes involved in cancer-related pathways were frequently affected not only by genetic but also by epigenetic alterations in HER2-positive breast cancer. © 2015 S. Karger AG, Basel.
