KRAS and TP53 mutations, which are the most common genetic drivers of tumorigenesis, are still considered undruggable targets. Therefore, we analyzed these genetic aberrations in metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) for the development of potential therapeutics. One hundred eighty-five consecutive patients with metastatic NSCLC in a phase 1 trial center were included. Their genomic aberrations, clinical characteristics, survivals, and phase 1 trial therapies were analyzed. About 10%, 18%, 36%, and 36% of the patients had metastatic KRAS+/TP53+, KRAS+/TP53-,KRAS-/TP53+, and KRAS-/TP53- NSCLC, respectively. The most common concurrent genetic aberrations beside KRAS and/or TP53 (>5%) were KIT, epidermal growth factor receptor, PIK3CA, c-MET, BRAF, STK11, ATM, CDKN2A, and APC. KRAS+/TP53+ NSCLC did not respond well to the phase 1 trial therapy and was associated with markedly worse progression-free (PFS) and overall (OS) survivals than the other three groups together. KRAS hotspot mutations at locations other than codon G12 were associated with considerably worse OS than those at this codon. Gene aberration-matched therapy produced prolonged PFS and so was anti-angiogenesis in patients with TP53 mutations. Introduction of the evolutionary action score system of TP53 missense mutations enabled us to identify a subgroup of NSCLC patients with low-risk mutant p53 proteins having a median OS duration of 64.5 months after initial diagnosis of metastasis. These data suggested that patients with metastatic dual KRAS+/TP53+ hotspot-mutant NSCLC had poor clinical outcomes. Further analysis identified remarkably prolonged survival in patients with low-risk mutant p53 proteins, which warrants confirmatory studies.
