Consequently, there are a large number of biomarkers, many of which are used in standard testing practice and so are not specifically referred to in NICE guidance. Multiple and combinations of biomarkers are often used to provide prognostic information and companies developing tests often create their own combinations.</p><p>As many tests look for multiple biomarkers for a single purpose and many tests in standard practice provide prognostic information, NICE is unable to provide categorical information on prognostic tests.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Clinical trial recruitment is important to the United Kingdom economy, especially in cancer research. For example, an independent report, commissioned by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN) and produced by KPMG’s Economics team, provided an assessment of the economic impact of the NIHR Clinical Research Network’s activities to support clinical research in the UK. The report estimated the gross value added and employment in the UK from CRN supported clinical research activity. It estimated that in the period April 2014 to March 2015 (financial year 2014/15) this activity generated a total of £2.4 billion gross value added and almost 39,500 jobs. Studies on cancer comprise a major part of CRN activity. A copy of <em>NIHR Clinical Research Network: Impact and Value Assessment</em> is attached.</p><p>A growing proportion of cancer trials supported by the NIHR involve molecular testing. One of the main purposes of the NIHR is to initiate studies speedily, and deliver them to time and target. Therefore timely molecular testing is important. This involves working with National Health Service pathology services to ensure that all essential steps are in place to deliver research studies.</p><p>The Chief Scientific Adviser has not made a specific assessment of the importance of molecular testing to drive cancer trial treatment. If a clinical trial that is to be delivered by the NIHR involves somatic gene testing that is not already in place, then the NHS will set up this new somatic gene testing as part of the delivery of the trial. Thus it is the nature of the research that drives clinical trial recruitment rather than the nature of the somatic gene testing that is in place.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Following reengineering of tumour provision to fresh tissue supply and creating 300 pathways for tumour supply across the 13 NHS Genomic Medicine Centres (GMCs), Genomics England has continued to work with the National Health Service to improve throughput over the life of the programme.</p><p>Over the past six months, the average (median) turnaround time for cancer cases from enrolment to return of analysis was 39 working days. For fast-tracked and clinically urgent cases, this average over the last six months is 25 working days. By September 2018, Genomics England were returning samples at scale in 20 days or less demonstrating the improvements in the majority of cases received.</p><p>The most clinically useful timeframe depends on each individual patient’s clinical circumstances. As the 100,000 Genomes Project is a research programme, patients were all offered the NHS standard of care for their condition, in addition to Whole Genome Sequencing, so their therapy could proceed as rapidly as needed. During the 100,000 Genomes Project about half of the cancer cases in the Project contained actionable findings identifying a potential targeted therapy or clinical trial opportunity.</p><p>To date, 5,801 participants results have been returned to NHS GMCs (some participants have multiple reports). In total, 506 participants in the 100,000 Genomes Project, many of whom had advanced disease at the time of enrolment, died before Genomics England returned a whole genome analysis to the NHS. Of these, 176 were participants who died before their DNA samples were received by Genomics England. In many cases the deceased cancer participants became part of the Project via consent by a nominated representative, relative or friend because of the value for research to help others even though it was too late for the individual concerned.</p>

However, NHS England is not introducing a national molecular pathology service in cancer and therefore has not carried out economic modelling or an estimate of cost for such a service.</p><p>A key element of the Genomic Medicine Service is the National Genomic Test Directory which outlines the entire repertoire of genomic tests – from existing tests for single genes and molecular markers Whole Genomic Sequencing to Whole Genome Sequencing – that are available as part of the National Health Service clinical service. This includes cancer genomic tests.</p><p>As part of the NHS Genomic Medicine Service, a National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) is being developed by Genomics England, on behalf of NHS England. When fully operational NGIS will enable NHS England to monitor the number of genomic tests being carried out across the country and benchmark activity.</p>
