The Role of Tumor Mutational Burden in Lung CancerVideo Categories: PMO Interview with the Innovator Series: Volume 12 and Video Library
Drs. Goeffrey Oxnard and Lauren Ritterhouse discuss the need for validation and standardization of Tumor Mutational Burden to make it a robust biomarker, in conjunction with PD-L1, in selecting immunotherapy for their lung cancer patients.
Dr Sanjiv Agarwala predicts that the cancer biomarkers of the future may be “mobile biomarkers,” meaning measures of the tumor microenvironment or immune response that change with therapy and may be able to determine treatment efficacy.
In this next segment, Dr Agarwala discusses when and how molecular tests should be utilized.
