The National Cancer Institute (NCI) in collaboration with the NCI Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice (MATCH) trial leadership (NCT 02465060) invites applications for Clinical Laboratory Improvements Program (CLIA) certified/accredited laboratories that test tumor specimens from patients utilizing Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) assays to participate in the NCI MATCH trial. The NCI MATCH trial has implemented a new process for identifying patients for arms with rare variant eligibility criteria. Laboratories will contact any of the approximately 1100 sites that have activated NCI MATCH if a specimen sent from one of these sites has a rare variant that would potentially make the patient eligible for one of the treatment arms open in this initiative.
