Advocating for ROS1


One of the founders of the ROS1ders, Janet Freeman-Daily, shares her story and why she advocates for molecular testing, clinical trials, and the positive changes she’s seen. “Given that lung cancer patients often don’t have much tumor tissue, we should make the best use of it, and running an NGS test is the best chance … Continue reading Advocating for ROS1

Detection of ROS1 rearrangement in lung cancer remains “complex”


“No testing methodology demonstrated 100% sensitivity in the detection of ROS1 rearrangements or fusions among patients with non-small cell lung cancer, according to study results.” “The main point is just to be aware of the deficiencies in these assays and not to always trust a negative result from a single test,” Kurtis D. Davies, PhD, … Continue reading Detection of ROS1 rearrangement in lung cancer remains “complex”

Updated molecular testing guideline strongly recommends ROS1 testing for NSCLC


An 2018 update to the lung cancer molecular testing guideline says testing for ROS1 rearrangements is strongly recommended for all lung cancer patients regardless of clinical characteristics. The article “Updated Molecular Testing Guideline for the Selection of Lung Cancer Patients for Treatment With Targeted Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors” was published online January 23, 2018, in the Journal of … Continue reading Updated molecular testing guideline strongly recommends ROS1 testing for NSCLC
