NCCN Guidelines on a continual basis.
General information on appropriate methodologies for biomarker testing is provided, focusing on the biology or abnormality being measured rather than on commercially available tests or test
NCCN anticipates that this compendium may eventually be used by payers in much the same way the NCCN Drugs & Biologics Compendium (NCCN Compendium®) is utilized as a reference for coverage decisions. The NCCN Biomarkers Compendium® aims to ensure that patients have coverage and access to appropriate biomarker testing based on the evaluations and recommendations of NCCN Panel Members.
Clinical professionals should apply independent medical judgment in their decisions about treatment that meets the clinical characteristics and needs of individual patients with cancer.
