The Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education (GRACE), presents Molecular Diagnostic Testing and Next Generation Sequencing in Lung Cancer webinar series.
Dr. Luis Raez, MD FACP FCCP, Chief of Hem/Onc and Med. Dir. at Memorial Cancer Institute, and Clinical Associate Prof. of Medicine at FL International University discusses Liquid Biopsies for Broad Next Generation Sequencing Testing.
More and more, when people are doing molecular testing on their tumor, they’re not just getting one test and if it’s negative doing another test — that’s called sequential testing, they’re doing lots of tests at the same time — that’s called multiplex testing. There are certain good things about that and certain things which are less than good.
Dr. Ed Kim from the Levine Cancer Institute reviews the potential advantages and current limitations of blood-based testing for molecular markers using circulating tumor cells and circulating tumor DNA in identifying clinically important mutations.
Dr. Ed Kim from the Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC summarizes the mechanism of next generation sequencing (NGS), how it can potentially be used, and its limitations in clinical practice today.
Drs. Ben Solomon, Leora Horn, & Jack West evaluate the merits of broad genetic testing with a "next generation sequencing" platform compared to selective, limited testing for the most proven driver mutations in patients with advanced NSCLC.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center medical oncologist Dr. Greg Riely explains how testing for specific mutations in patients with advanced NSCLC can guide prognosis and treatment recommendations.
