Introducing Drugs & Trials for Cancer Diagnostics

About this webinar

Recorded On: Wednesday, February 12, 2020

When interpreting a variant using the AMP/ASCO guidelines for somatic variant interpretation, clinicians must determine whether the variant can be considered a biomarker that affects clinical care by predicting sensitivity, resistance, or toxicity to a specific therapy. Such a determination requires the investigation of multiple evidence sources, including clinical trials, FDA approved therapies and peer-reviewed studies. Unfortunately, strong evidence linking specific genetic biomarkers to FDA-approved therapies only exists for a small number of cancers. Thus, most variants require an exploration of clinical practice guidelines, peer-reviewed literature, and large-scale cancer mutation databases to effectively assess the clinical significance of a given mutation.

This webcast explores this new incorporation of Drugs & Trials Annotations in VSClinical's AMP Workflow covering:

  • Identification of relevant clinical evidence for drug sensitivity and resistance based on patient biomarkers and tumor type
  • Review of clinical trial information including inclusion criteria, trial status, and contact information
  • Management of citations associated with relevant, targeted therapies
  • Evaluation of a biomarkers clinical evidence tier based on available evidence for drug sensitivity and resistance
