Current Gold Standards for MSI Testing and the Clinical Relevance of the MSI-H Biomarker
Historically MSI has been used to screen for Lynch syndrome, a dominant hereditary cancer propensity. Recently, MSI status has been rediscovered as a biomarker for immunotherapeutic response, making MSI status an increasingly relevant tool for genetics and immuno-oncology applications. In this webinar, we will discuss MSI testing gold standards and compare the different methods that are currently being used for MSI testing for mismatch repair deficient (dMMR) tumors. We will also discuss the clinical relevance of the MSI-H biomarker focusing on the pathological and epidemiological characteristics of MSI-H/dMMR tumors, and the role of MSI testing in Lynch syndrome screening, colorectal cancer patient prognosis, and immunotherapy treatment.
