About The Need for Biopsy in the Treatment of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Increasing use of targeted therapies for cancer treatment has raised the need to obtain information from biopsies to determine the molecular profile of a patient's cancer in order to properly select treatment and assess therapeutic response over time. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a particularly important indication with high demand for molecular testing. Third generation EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors are approaching launch, placing even greater demands on the need for genomic information associated with NSCLC.  Eligibility for these treatments will be determined by the presence of a T790M resistance mutation, as identified upon a repeat biopsy. Given the costs, risks, and other challenges with lung tissue biopsy, the use of a non-invasive alternative to tissue biopsy offers the potential to obtain the required molecular information, while overcoming the issues associated with invasive tissue biopsy surgery.
