How International Standards for Molecular Biomarker Testing in Lung Cancer Have Influenced Which Tests are Routinely PerformedVideo Categories: PMO Interview with the Innovator Series: Volume 12 and Video Library
Drs. Roy Herbst and David Rimm discuss the 50-gene panel that has become an ISLC-mandated standard for all patients with lung cancer; however, the components of cancer biomarker testing panels must be fluid and respond to new developments in the field as reported in the literature and/or at international cancer meetings, with adoption of the test predicated on standardization and the perceived value of the test.
Drs. Goeffrey Oxnard and Lauren Ritterhouse review how the results of PD-L1 testing influence the choices in first- or second-line immunotherapy or combination immunochemotherapy in patients with squamous or non-squamous non-small-cell lung cancer.
Dr. Palmer describes how the direct relationship between treatment directed to change in the DNA actually affects the outcome of patients.
