Comprehensive biomarker testing is underutilized for many reasons, including lack of access to the tests, potential high out-of-pocket cost, and a labor-intensive process. As more biomarker-driven therapy becomes available through clinical trials and FDA approvals, genomic testing should be accessible to all patients and should become a part of routine cancer care. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network recommends biomarker testing for patients with advanced or metastatic cancers to identify the best treatment options. In this session, we will discuss case studies on how patients can be identified for tailored therapy through biomarker testing and how this testing impacted treatment decisions. We will also discuss practical challenges and considerations on biomarker testing in community programs and practices and strategies to overcome these challenges to make biomarker testing more accessible for all patients with cancer.
