This issue of LRG Science presents six case studies as evidence that the practice of biomarker/mutational testing early in a GIST patient's journey is a critical path to the most effective treatment. Each patient was diagnosed with GIST, but did not receive mutational testing early enough to avoid suffering adverse side effects and wasting money on unnecessary, costly drugs.
So far in 2021, our 'It's Time' campaign has emphasized twelve important points concerning biomarker testing and the important role it plays in a GIST patient's journey. We will keep the momentum going with patient stories, webinars, and resource materials.
Biomarker testing is an opportunity to improve and optimize treatment. In this post, GISTer Bill Borwegen shares his story and we share how you can help save lives.
Identifying rare subsets of GIST and starting new clinical trials is critical. Read here about one researcher's clinical trial progress.
If you know your mutation, you have a better chance of getting the most effective treatment more quickly, and increasing your survival time. Making biomarker testing a standard of care will ensure that patients & medical professionals are fully informed so that treatment will be more effective.
Uncovering the driving force behind each individual’s tumors is not just important, it is critical. In this post, we feature sarcoma experts discussing biomarker testing.
This New Horizons GIST webinar is for GIST patients around the world. Hosted by SPAEN, this presentation focuses on mutational testing as a guide for the right therapy.
