The Use of Next-Generation Sequencing in Treating Non-Squamous Non-Small-Cell Lung CancerVideo Categories: PMO Interview with the Innovator Series: Volume 12 and Video Library
Drs. Goeffrey Oxnard and Lauren Ritterhouse consider how next-generation sequencing (NGS) informs treatment of lung cancer patients in providing information on tumor mutational burden, microsatellite instability, unique targetable genomic signatures, as well as novel targets that may be best addressed in a clinical trial.
Dr Wainberg and Dr Gerson identify some of the challenges of preclinical models versus clinical trials.
Drs. Roy Herbst and David Rimm discuss ways in which the time required to complete biomarker testing can be reduced, from obtaining and processing tissues, performing the testing, evaluating results, and reporting results to the cancer care team.
