Title Treatment of advanced lung cancer based on genomic profiling using liquid biopsy (plasma): A review of three cases.
Abstract Text Of the 80 solid tumor cases in which liquid biopsy (LB) was performed using Guardant360 in the PROFILE study, nine were lung cancer cases. Here, we review three cases in which LB was useful in diagnosing ALK fusion-positive lung cancer, selecting sequential ALK-tyrosine kinase inhibitors, confirming uncommon EGFR mutations, and receiving biomarker-compatible therapy.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.
