Assesses all four main classes of genomic alterations* in >300† cancer-related genes, including guideline-recommended genomic alterations associated with available targeted therapies in all solid tumours.1·2.4-11
The FDA-approved liquid biopsy service that reports both MSl‡ and bTMB, pan-tumour genomic signatures that may help inform eligibility for immunotherapy.1-3,19-27
High sensitivity and specificity¥ for key genomic alterations, MSI‡ and bTMB across all solid tumours.1,2
Reports Tumour Fraction, the percentage of tumour-derived circulating cell-free DNA, as a measure of the likelihood of detecting genomic alterations in the liquid biopsy sample.1,2
FoundationOne Liquid CDx requires only two tubes of b lood from a single blood draw (2 x 8.5 ml whole blood) and has a turnaround time of less than 2 weeks from receipt of the sample at our laboratory to report, thereby allowing informed treatment decisions to be made faster.1-28
This may help reduce distress that patients may experience from long waiting times for scheduling a biopsy and receiving the results associated with tissue-based testing.12-15
Approved targeted therapies and immunotherapies for the patient's genomic alterations and biomarkers are ranked alphabetically within NCCN Categories of Preference (for additional information on the NCCN therapy categories please refer to the NCCN Compendium® at www.nccn.org). Reports vary according to regional differences, e.g. EU reports list EU-approved therapy options to support clinical decision-making.‖41
When using different Foundation Medicine services across the patient journey, consistency of the reports aid comparison of the results.41,42
*Base substitutions, insertions or deletions, copy number alterations and gene rearrangements.
†309 genes with complete coding exonic coverage, 15 genes with select intronic or non-coding regions only.
‡Foundation0ne Liquid CDx reports MSI-H status
§Validation based on overall >7,500 samples covering >30,000 unique variants across >300 genes and 37 cancer indications.1,2 To learn more about the clinical and analytical validation of FoundationOne Liquid CDx, click here.
¥75 genes are baited with enhanced sensitivity for all variant types (selected based on increased actionability with current or future targeted therapies; for more information of these 75 genes, please refer to our full gene list): other genomic regions are baited with high sensitivity.
¶Clinical validation based on evidence gathered using an earlier version of Foundation Medicine's current liquid biopsy service, FoundationOne Liquid CDx. For concordance results between these two tests, please see our full intended use at www.foundationmedicine.com/F1LCDx.
