Tier 1 - Variants with strong evidence of clinical utility
Variants with strong evidence1 of clinical actionability for this tumor type, including FDA-approved targeted therapies for this tumor type.
Variants with strong evidence1 of prognostic significance for this tumor type.
Variants recognized as entity-defining molecular alterations by current WHO guidelines for this tumor type.
Tier 2 - Variants with potential clinical relevance
Strong evidence1 of clinical actionability in this tumor or in a different tumor type.
Known investigational studies targeting this variant in this tumor type.
Variants may be included in this tier if they are characteristic of a particular tumor type and/or are thought to have functional relevance for this tumor type, but they do not meet criteria for Tier 1.
Tier 3 - Variants of undetermined clinical significance
The functional and clinical relevance of these variants are undetermined for this tumor type. These variants are provided in the event that they are proven to be of clinical utility at a later date.
1 Evidence is considered “strong” if there is/are:
An FDA-approved therapy included in professional guidelines related to this variant for this tumor type, and/or
Well-powered studies with consensus from experts in the field that guide therapy based on this variant as an independent parameter in this tumor type.
