Yes, thanks Derek. That result is so new that the testing needed is certainly not commercially available yet. But it might be possible that the lab that published the paper might be welcoming samples so they can continue their research.

Also, even before this result, for several years there have been attempts to look for information in the genetics of the tumor itself. It was discussed more on this board 3-4 years ago, but less so lately. That tells me that the research is still ongoing, without exciting results until last week.

But I strongly encourage folks to ask their oncologists about genetic testing of their tumors. There will be more clinical trials that involve this.
