Although there has not been an agent yet developed that successfully targets PI3K, Chandalapty says the pathway still has a significant role.

PI3K mutations may be less frequent than AKT mutations in patients with metastatic breast cancer, he adds. However, developing a drug that specifically targets PI3K-mutant tumors may help researchers in achieving activity in a difficult-to-treat population.
