Back to ROS1 Pathology Testing and Reporting to Inform Targeted Therapy and Treatment
Awareness of the ROS1 rearrangement biomarkers among the laboratory team must increase to optimize the opportunity for appropriate patients to receive ROS1 testing and targeted therapy. In addition, consistent testing and reporting of ROS1 rearrangement in laboratory reports will provide more actionable treatment of ROS1-rearranged tumors, improving NSCLC patient care.
This online course will feature a 4-faculty, moderated panel discussion of ROS1 rearrangements using problem-based pathology cases in an instructional tumor-board format, emphasizing the multidisciplinary nature of pathology reporting and diagnosis as it affects targeted therapies and patient treatment. This enduring material also integrates well with additional ROS1 Program activities.
Identify common problems in specimen inadequacy and ways to address them.
Identify optimal processes and procedures in performing ROS1 testing on patient specimens in accordance with CLIA regulations.
Identify the pros and cons of FISH, IHC, RT-PCR, and NGS ROS1 testing for ROS1.
Analyze and discuss problem-based NSCLC ROS1 laboratory-testing case studies to identify and recommend optimal work process to achieve specimen adequacy, interpretation, and reporting.
Analyze suboptimal pathology ROS1 test report(s) and suggestions on how to enhance consistency, interpretation, staging, and scoring for Oncologists.
