KRAS Tests – In Vitro Diagnostics Market Analysis and Forecast Model

Globally, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in men and the third most common cancer in women. There are two main types of lung cancer; small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), with NSCLC accounting for approximately 80-90% of all lung cancer cases. The 5-year survival rate for patients with stage IV disease is less than 5% as majority of patients present with the advanced or metastatic disease at diagnosis. Kirsten rat sarcoma (KRAS) is a downstream signaling molecule in the EGFR cellular pathway with roles in cell growth and proliferation. It is commonly mutated in both CRC (39%) and NSCLC (25%) with the most frequent mutations in codons 12 and 13 causing over-activation of KRAS, which results in excessive cellular proliferation and tumor growth. There are no clinically approved therapies that target KRAS. However, its mutational status serves as an indication for response to approved anti-EGFR receptor antibodies in CRC and Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors (TKIs) in NSCLC. Patients that have mutations in KRAS will not benefit from these anti-EGFR therapies. Therefore, major organizations such as the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and others throughout Asia suggest that all late-stage metastatic CRC (stage IV) patients be tested for KRAS mutations when EGFR therapy is considered. However, such a strong consensus has not yet been reached for KRAS testing in late stages of NSCLC.
