“I think this is the time to review everything and make sure your NGS panel is broad and has covered all the new agents and new targets that are in development. Is there an opportunity there for a clinical trial strategy? Readdress goals of care and have a real discussion about our options and how we move forward.” Ticiana Leal, MD
