Test ID: APGP    
Acute Porphyria Gene Panel, Varies

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

Establishing a molecular diagnosis for patients with acute porphyria

 

Identifying variants within genes known to be associated with acute porphyria, allowing for predictive testing of at-risk family members

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

This test utilizes next-generation sequencing to detect single nucleotide and copy number variants in 4 genes associated with acute porphyria: ALAD, CPOX, HMBS, PPOX. See Method Description for additional details.

 

Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with diagnosis, prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling for acute porphyria.

 

Additional first tier testing may be considered/recommended. For more information see Testing Algorithm section.

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

The following algorithms are available in Special Instructions:

-Porphyria (Acute) Testing Algorithm

-Porphyria (Cutaneous) Testing Algorithm
