Once a diagnosis of cancer has been established, the tissue specimen containing tumor may be referred for molecular testing (e.g., DNA and RNA sequencing) to detect genomic alterations that can select patients for targeted therapy. However, will these targeted treatments be effective? “Confirmational Proteomics” is an application of immunohistochemistry that can evaluate the tumor “landscape” for overexpression or loss of specific proteins associated with genomic alterations, and which may help guide therapy for patients with certain types of cancer.
