Germline BRCA (gBRCA) is a Critical Biomarker for the Treatment of Patients with Pancreatic Cancer
All patients with pancreatic cancer meet NCCN genetic testing criteria, but there is now an additional clinical need to test at diagnosis.1 Men and women with BRCA mutated (BRCAm) pancreatic cancer are a distinct patient type with PARP-dependent tumors that are sensitive to platinum-based chemotherapy. It is important for you to determine these patients’ gBRCA status at diagnosis to inform your treatment plan.
