genetic testing

Color researchers reported that 21.7 percent of individuals with pathogenic variants in well-established genes did not meet guidelines for testing.

Stanford University's Allison Kurian and her colleagues found that women with pathogenic variants were more likely to undergo a bilateral mastectomy.

The assay can identify KRAS, NRAS, PIK3CA, BRAF, and EGFR gene mutations, as well as 19 gene rearrangements of the ALK, ROS1, RET, NTRK1, and MET genes from FFPE.

The analysis from Quest Diagnostic researchers compared the cost-effectiveness of a seven-gene panel test to BRCA1 and BRCA2 testing alone in improving life expectancy.
