Rearrangements of PDGFRA (including FIP1L1-PDGFRα) is a common abnormality among patients with chronic eosinophilic leukemia. In addition, activating mutations (eg, p.H650Q, p. N659S, p.R748G, p.Y849S) in PDGFRA have been reported in FIP1L1-PDGFRα-negative chronic eosinophilic leukemia and resistance mutations in PDGFRA (eg. p.D842V, p.T674I) have been reported in the setting of imatinib therapy for patients with FIP1L1-PDGFRα. These PDGFRA mutations have variable responses to the different available tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
