Patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and actionable mutations had similar progression-free survival (PFS) whether treatment guidance came from tissue or circulating tumor (ct)DNA analysis using the Guardant360 assay, a matched retrospective comparison showed.

The comparison of targetable mutations identified by ctDNA and tissue in 122 matched cases showed strong agreement between the 2 testing techniques. The overall diagnostic accuracy was 99.6% and was 100% for 8 of 11 types of targetable mutations identified. Sensitivity was 99.2%, specificity 99.7%, PPV 96.7%, and NPV 99.9%.
