Prospective Registry Of MultiPlex Testing (PROMPT)

This study is open to:

Adults can enroll in PROMPT if they have had any of the following:

  • have had genetic testing for multiple genes (panel testing) and have tested positive for a mutation in a gene associated with cancer risk
  • have had genetic testing for multiple genes (panel testing) and have a variant of uncertain significance (VUS) in one of the genes associated with cancer risk 
  • member of a family where one of the members had panel testing and tested positive for a mutation or a VUS in one of the genes
This study is not open to:
  • Minors

Study Contact Information

The study is being conducted by researchers at University of Pennsylvania, Dana-Farber Cancer Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering and Mayo Clinic. You can contact the study team via email or by visiting the study website. You do not have to be a patient at the lead institutions to enroll. 

About the Study

PROMPT is an online research registry for people who have had genetic panel testing (also known as multiplex testing) — a newer form of genetic testing that looks for mutations in several different genes at once. All genes on the panels have been linked to an increased risk of cancer, but some risks are better known than others.

The goal of the PROMPT Registry is to follow people with mutations or variants in genes on these panels, so that patients, physicians, and researchers can more clearly understand these lesser-known risks. For more information visit the PROMPT Study website

What the Study Entails

People can enroll in PROMPT by completing an secure, online questionnaire about their personal and family medical history. You do not have to travel or be a patient at the institution in order to enroll.
