Working with the top hospitals in North America

Breast cancer care has involved use of biomarkers for years in order to determine appropriate therapy. Genomic information has now been added to the list of crucial biomarkers needed to know how to treat metastatic breast cancer patients with the approval of targeted therapy for BRCA and PIK3CA mutations. Having this information also gives a patient the best opportunity to consider one of numerous biomarker driven clinical trials. These options allow as personalized an approach to treatment as possible and I have no doubt that genomic data will continue to transform the way patients are treated as our field moves forward.

    Validation of a Liquid Biopsy Assay with Molecular and Clinical Profiling of Circulating Tumor DNA

    Actionable variants would have been missed if only solid tumor or liquid biopsy tests were performed. Thus, we believe that liquid biopsies provide value to patients when used in combination with standard tissue genotyping.

    Rate of Incidental Germline Findings Detected by Tumor-Normal Matched Sequencing in Cancer Types Lacking Hereditary Cancer Testing Guidelines

    This study found that Tumor-normal (T/N) matched next-generation sequencing (NGS) has multiple advantages including enhanced variant classification and incidental germline variant discovery that may be missed with a guidelines-based approach.
