Quick recap of outstanding talk by @adrienne_boire 👉🏻 we MUST open our minds to seek out LMD. Do the LPs, send the csf (esp CTCs), look for tx options/ trials. #btsm #asco23 1/ ImageImage

🚨Tweetorial: NTRK 101 🚨Given the data discussed at @asco #ASCO2019 & @sno #SNO2019 on #NTRK fusions in primary brain tumors & brain mets, I thought we could review the background of these fusions, how to find them, and then look at potential options for tx. #btsm

With the increase in tumor profiling & expanded options using #RNAseq, it seems like it is getting easier to find an #NTRK fusion. It can easily feel like Christmas when you do! 🎄 Just remember that an #NTRK MUTATION is not 🚫 fusion. They aren’t = & treatments aren’t the same.
