In the modern era of personalized medicine, treatment of patients with advanced GI cancers has moved beyond a chemotherapy-centric model to one in which effective treatments can be matched to individual patients based on genomic testing results. What do colorectal and pancreatic cancer providers need to know about baseline testing and personalized treatment strategies, including those that target less common genomic mutations causing RET and NTRK alterations? In this activity, based on a recent live symposium, a panel of experts in GI malignancies presents evidence-based guidance on modern diagnostic protocols and the personalized treatment of fusion-driven cancers. With relevant cases framing the discussion, the panel provides foundational knowledge on tumor-agnostic genomic alterations, updates on genomic testing techniques sensitive enough to capture rare alterations, and strategies for integrating targeted agents into treatment plans. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Explain current guidelines and evidence related to molecular testing and targeted therapeutics, enabling timely diagnosis, and treatment of gene fusion–driven GI cancers; Implement collaborative, multidisciplinary genomic testing protocols designed to capture less common but actionable molecular alterations in metastatic or locally advanced GI cancers; and Construct safe, individualized treatment plans for patients with advanced GI cancers who present with uncommon genomic alterations
