The preclinical and clinical studies, which were selected by a panel of NCCN experts, will be evaluated at NCCN member institutions and funded by Taiho Oncology.

Researchers concluded that there has been significant expansion of coverage for ctDNA assays over the past four years, but policies remain very heterogeneous and often limited.

A pilot project showed that clinics using the InheRET tool were able to gather more complete family history information from patients, which is important for further cancer risk evaluation.

The group now states that men with unfavorable intermediate-risk or high-risk disease can consider testing with Myriad's Prolaris or GenomeDx's Decipher.

Amid rapid adoption of multi-gene panels, ACMG experts are seeing some doctors and patients taking actions they shouldn't.

Absent sufficient evidence to support genetic testing for all patients, the group recommended following existing guidelines, which are based on clinical factors.

The guidelines place a stronger emphasis on pancreatic cancer risk genes, and broaden testing recommendations for those with Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry.

Investigators compared expression in different men across the genes from three commercial panels, arguing that the findings highlight important unknowns.
