Test ID: CMVNG    
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Drug Resistance, Next-Generation Sequencing, Plasma

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

Detecting variants in the cytomegalovirus genes, UL97 and UL54, which are associated with antiviral resistance

 

This test is not useful for the initial diagnosis of CMV infection

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 next-generation sequencing to assess whether variants that are associated with antiviral resistance are present in the genes UL97 and UL54.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

This test may be performed following quantitative nucleic acid amplification test results that suggest an increase, or stabilization, of cytomegalovirus (CMV) viral load while the patient is on appropriate antiviral therapy.
