Prospective Registry Of MultiPlex Testing (PROMPT)
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.

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
