Foundation Medicine approach broadly examines the tumour genome
The Foundation Medicine comprehensive genomic profiling approach leverages next generation sequencing (NGS) technology to examine regions of the tumour genome that other tests miss.1–12 Comprehensive genomic profiling detects the four main classes of genomic alterations – base substitutions, insertions or deletions, copy number alterations and gene rearrangements – in a comprehensive set of cancer-relevant genes, and reports tumour mutational burden (TMB) and microsatellite instability (MSI).*1–6

Clear, in-depth report supports clinical decision-making
Our clear, in-depth report supports clinical decision-making by providing insights on the patient’s genomic profile as well as associated targeted therapies, immunotherapies and relevant clinical trials. The report also highlights important disease-relevant genes with no reportable alterations identified and genomic alterations associated with potential resistance to therapy to help rule out potentially ineffective treatment.13
