Yeah, I had seen that. Good summary. Everyone should be ensuring they have been tested for the various actionable markers: trk/alk fusions, her2, msi/tmb, etc. I’ve seen oncologist discuss that they don’t know what to do about longer surviving patients that weren’t tested for trk fusions, if it’s worth going back and testing for a 1% chance. For me it is, so I would definitely check that it’s been done...
