Comprehensive genomic profiling is emerging as a powerful tool in our arsenal to treat cancer. It’s easy to see why: with a minimal amount of sample, clinicians are able to identify all four types of genetic alterations across a large set of genes with known relevance to cancer. When you consider that up to 90% of patients who undergo comprehensive genomic profiling may have an actionable genetic alteration1-6 , you begin to understand how this new diagnostic tool can revolutionize cancer care.
