The role of core hospital of cancer genomic medicine and regional cooperation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two genomic profiling assays have been approved by Japanese national health insurance in December 2018. Japanese government assigned core hospitals, which can conduct molecular tumor board, called "expert panel" to make a therapeutic recommendation based on the genomic findings and concentrated the function of cancer genomic medicine. The genomic profiling tests under Japanese national health insurance system must be covered for the entire population. To eliminate regional disparities of such an advanced medicine, the infrastructure to spread cancer genomic medicine for collaborating among hospitals should be established. Here, we introduce our efforts to make regional collaboration in Tohoku University Hospital.
