      P053 - The Potential of Assessing Blood Tumor Mutation Burden (bTMB) Using a Large Panel (ID 70)

      • Abstract

      TMB, measuring the number of non-synonymous mutation per megabase of DNA, has shown to associate with response to checkpoint inhibitors in a number of cancers, including lung cancer. Whole exome sequencing (WES), the gold standard for evaluating TMB, is less cost-effective. Multiple studies have shown large panels can yield comparable results in tissue samples. However, the feasibility of assessing bTMB using a large panel has not been extensively evaluated. In this study, we evaluated TMB of 30 treatment-na
