Next-generation sequencing for non-colorectal GI tumors
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST)
Our next-generation sequencing assay for noncolorectal GI cancer assists in diagnosis, including mutations in the most commonly mutated PDGFRA and KIT genes, which are present in 85%-90% of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), along with NF1, BRAF, and other RAS genes. The test also includes detection of SETD2 and TP53 mutations, which have been shown to take on an aggressive clinical course.

Comprehensive panel boosts GIST diagnosis sensitivity
Rondell Graham, M.B.B.S., describes Mayo Clinic Laboratories' new assay for gastrointestinal stromal tumors, or GIST. The panel covers multiple mutations, to better inform diagnosis and treatment options.
