GIST-Targeted Gene Panel by Next-Generation Sequencing, Tumor

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Diagnosis and management of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

This test uses targeted next-generation sequencing to evaluate for somatic mutations within the KIT (exon 2, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18) and PDGFRA (exons 12, 14, 15, 18) genes. See Targeted Gene Regions Interrogated by Solid Tumor Targeted Cancer Gene Panel by Next-Generation Sequencing in Special Instructions for details regarding the targeted gene regions identified by this test.

 

Of note, this test is performed to evaluate for somatic mutations within solid tumor samples. This test is not intended for use for hematological malignancies. Additionally, this test does not assess for germline alterations within the genes listed.
