24890 EGFR with ALK Reflex, Tumor (EGFRR)

EGFR with ALK Reflex, Tumor (EGFRR)
Test Code:  EGFRPSO
Synonyms/Keywords
EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Epidermal growth factor receptor, Erlotinib, Gefitinib, Non-small cell lung cancer​
Useful For

​Identifying non-small cell lung cancers that may benefit from treatment with epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase or anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors.

When this test is ordered, EGFR and LCAF testing will always be ordered. The  EGFR Gene, Mutation Analysis, 29 Mutation Panel, Tumor, will always be performed.  All specimens without an EGFR mutation will be automatically reflexed to LCAF/ALK (2p23), Lung Caner, FISH Tissue at an additional charge.  Specimens with an identified EGFR mutation will result in cancellation of the LCAF test.  

See - EGFR with ALK reflex.
