General Information

Individual Signature Analysis

The following signature is available on an à la carte basis:

The Tumor Inflammation Signature (TIS) quantifies the magnitude of a peripherally suppressed, adaptive immune response in the tumor microenvironment. It has been trained and validated by Merck to predict response to single agent Pembrolizumab, independent of tumor cell of origin.

The following signature is available on an à la carte basis:

PAM50 intrinsic breast cancer subtypes used in this analysis defines 4 prototypical subtypes Basal, Her2-Enriched, Luminal B and Luminal A. The clinical and prognostic characteristics of these subtypes are extensively studied. If clinical tumor size is provided, the PAM50 report will also include the Risk of Recurrence (ROR) score. If the number of positive nodes is provided, the PAM50 report will also include Risk Category.

The following signature is available on an à la carte basis:

The Lymphoma Subtyping Test is based on the Leukemia and Lymphoma Molecular Profiling Project Lymph2Cx assay and provides cell of origin data for diffuse large B-cell lymphomas. The LST report includes the Linear Predictor Score (LPS) and the DLBCL cell of origin subtype: GCB, ABC, or Unclassified.
