Description: How can a single biopsy accurately profile a tumor targeted for therapy? Isn’t it necessary to do multiple biopsies over time? Dr. Ross Camidge of the University of Colorado-Denver, and Dr. Nisha Mohindra of Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center answer this Ask the Expert question. Dr. Camidge points out that while the dominant mutation stays the same and only requires one biopsy to determine that mutation, multiple biopsies keeps up with the evolution of the cancer. Dr. Mohindra adds that targeted therapy alters the tumor and follow-up biopsies indicate those changes.
