Practical Considerations for Detecting NTRK Gene FusionsVideo Categories: NTRK Gene Fusions
Dr Ezra Cohen of UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA; Dr Mary Fidler of Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL; and Dr Arturo Loaiza-Bonilla of the Comprehensive Care and Research Center, Philadelphia, PA, review molecular methodologies and factors to consider in the identification of TRK fusion–positive tumors.
Best Practices in How Oncologists and Pathologists Can Work Together to Optimize Biomarker Testing for their Patients with Cancer
Dr Sanjiv Agarwala describes best practices developed at St. Luke’s Cancer Center, where a committee has been formed in which clinicians and pathologists meet to reach consensus on reflex testing of molecular biomarkers, as well as the value of biomarker testing in enhancing patient care.
Dr Andrey Antov provides a useful metaphor to explain how genetic testing and genomic testing differ from one another and the purpose behind each type of testing.
