Record ID 32018000644
Authors' objectives: To provide guidance on the evidence needed to evaluate immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing for mismatch repair deficiency (dMMR) in colorectal cancer (CRC) and many other types of tumour (pan-tumour or tumour agnostic), in order to access pembrolizumab treatment. Subsequent co-dependent technology submissions seeking subsidy for biomarker testing for treatments that have pan-tumour effects may also be assessed according to this guidance.
