Vivek Subbiah: Universal germline, in addition to tumor somatic, genomic testing is needed to win the war against cancer

Vivek Subbiah recently shared a post on X/Twitter:

“Pleased to share Universal Germline and Tumor Genomic Testing Needed to Win the War Against Cancer: Genomics Is the Diagnosis
American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Journal and Journal of Clinical Oncology.

In a previous viewpoint, we posited that we need universal (somatic) genomic testing to win the war against cancer. Currently, given the rapidly emerging evidence, we update our view to state that universal germline, in addition to tumor somatic, genomic testing is needed to win the war against cancer.”
