Test ID: HPPAN    
Hereditary Pancreatitis Panel

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

Confirmation of suspected clinical diagnosis of familial or hereditary pancreatitis in patients with chronic pancreatitis


Identification of gene mutations contributing to pancreatitis in an individual or family


Identification of gene mutations to allow for predictive and diagnostic testing in family members

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

Testing includes full gene sequencing of the PRSS1, CFTR, CTRC, and SPINK1 genes and multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification for the detection of large deletions and duplications within the CFTR gene.


This test evaluates for mutations within the 4 most common genes associated with susceptibility to chronic pancreatitis: PRSS1, CFTR, CTRC, and SPINK1


This assay provides diagnostic confirmation of hereditary pancreatitis or identification of gene mutations contributing to pancreatitis in an individual or family
