Prof. Christophe Le Tourneau explains that a term of precision medicine came along with a technology of multigene sequencing or assessment of multiple genes in a single assay. It can be applied now easily. Predictive value is about clinical utility of multigene sequencing, in other words does the multigene sequencing in cancer patients improves the outcome. Different molecular alterations that are assessed in multigene sequencing might have prognostic value. Testing recommendations depend on a kind of analysis and kind of tissue analysed.
