Comments : Screening for mutations in oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes is increasingly important in delivering personalized cancer care. The GeneTrails® Solid Tumor Panel is a custom assay that delivers information on clinically informative alterations among 124 genes. These genes were selected on the basis of their relevance to current clinical therapies. Alterations may include single nucleotide substitutions, insertions, deletions, and gains or losses in gene copy number. Up to 50 alterations may be reported for any sample, although most will have less than 10. The panel has a lower limit of detection of ~3-5% mutant allele. The panel is useful for characterizing solid tumors of all types, providing information that can help optimize treatment with targeted therapeutics, particularly in the setting of advanced disease.
