Trial Purpose

Researchers are looking for a better way to treat people with solid tumors. One new way is called cancer genomic medicine. In cancer genomic medicine, doctors use tests to look at the genetic information in a solid tumor. These tests are called panel tests. The results of the panel tests help doctors to choose the best type of medicine to treat that tumor.

In this study, the researchers want to learn more about what a large number of patients with solid tumors think are the burden and benefits of taking panel tests. The researchers also want to know what doctors who treat patients with solid tumors think about panel tests.

The study will include about 650 men and women in Japan who are at least 20 years old. About 340 of the participants will be patients with solid tumors who are taking medicine to help treat their tumors. About 310 of the patients will be doctors who are treating patients with solid tumors.

There will be 3 parts in this study. Part 1 will include patients with solid tumors. Parts 2 and 3 will include patients with solid tumors and doctors who are treating patients with solid tumors. In each part, the patients and doctors will answer questions about what they think of panel tests. During Part 1, all of the patients will answer questions in a teleconference. Some of the patients and physicians in Part 2 will also answer questions in a teleconference. During Part 2 and Part 3, all of the patients and doctors will complete an online questionnaire.
