Herbert Loong: I am adopting the use of ctDNA more and more in my GIST practice

Herbert Loong, Clinical Associate Professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong shared a post by Pawel Sobczuk, Medical oncology fellow at the Maria Skłodowska-Curie National Research Institute of Oncology, on X/Twitter, adding:

Excellent overview! Thanks Pawel Sobczuk and César Serrano García! I am adopting the use of ctDNA more and more in my GIST practice, esp. when we move between lines of therapies to ensure we have a good assessment of heterogeneity and to ‘tailor’ suitable next TKIs given their differing coverage.”

Quoting Pawel Sobczuk’s post:

ctDNA in GIST:
ready to use for mutation testing
not read for disease monitoring or detection of MRD (eg. Deciding on duration of adjuvant imatinib re: Tom Wei-Wu Chen) Fantastic overview by César Serrano García
