Christine M. Walko, Pharm.D., discusses how advancements in technology have improved the quality, cost and turnaround time for assessing genetic mutations in tumor tissue, and how this has helped to translate precision medicine into standard clinical practice.
Dr. Edward S. Kim from the Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC discusses the feasibility of molecular marker testing and targeted therapy in the adjuvant or post-operative setting.
Brendan Bietry of the Patient Advocate Foundation discusses the financial assistance programs available to lung cancer patients who receive targeted therapies.
Dr. West moderates a question & answer session with Drs. Leora Horn and Greg Riely on issues of acquired resistance to targeted therapies for patients with advanced NSCLC that harbors a driver mutation.
Repeat Biopsies and Emerging Technologies for Plasma Sampling of Mutations Seen with Acquired Resistance
Dr. Leora Horn of Vanderbilt University reviews the rapidly evolving issue and growing value of repeat biopsies, including plasma sampling as a "liquid biopsy" option, in the setting of acquired resistance to a driver mutation in advanced NSCLC.
