Test ID: CANCP    
Solid Tumor Targeted Cancer Gene Panel by Next Generation Sequencing

NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.

Conditional

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Identifying tumors that may respond to targeted therapies by assessing multiple gene targets simultaneously

 

Identifying specific mutations within genes known to be associated with response or resistance to specific cancer therapies

 

Identifying mutations that may help determine prognosis for patients with solid tumors

 

Assisting in establishing a diagnosis (eg, KIT and PDGFRA alterations for gastrointestinal stromal tumors)

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct test or proper submission of the test request

This test uses targeted next generation sequencing to evaluate for somatic mutations within 50 genes associated with cancer. See Targeted Gene Regions Interrogated by Solid Tumor Targeted Cancer Gene Panel by Next Generation Sequencing in Special Instructions for details regarding the targeted gene regions identified by this test.

 

Of note, this test is performed to evaluate for somatic mutations within tumor samples. This test does not assess for germline alterations within the genes listed.
