Given limited options for TNBC most of the advice from several oncologists seem more seat of the pants or here are your options, good luck, you choose. We have had to do our own intensive research to figure out what the right chemo should be. Unfortunately, that is near impossible since there is not just one best choice. So the question I have has anyone undergone Biomarker Signature Testing that can possibly point out flaws that can be attacked on the TNBC cell. One example is the PD-L1 that seems to be susceptible to Keytruda. Outside of a drug trial does anyone know of a service that will test for Biomarkers?

Hi jbehre. I had a double mastectomy in August and my oncologist requested a comprehensive tumor profiling be done to my tumor sample at that time. Here is the information on the services that she used.

The second website also includes oncologist that use their services in case your oncologist is not on board with your decision.
I sincerely hope this helps and I wish you the best!!! God Bless and you are not alone. We may not know each other but I understand you.💖💖
