Test ID: P53CA    
Hematologic Neoplasms, TP53 Somatic Mutation, DNA Sequencing Exons 4-9, Varies

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

Evaluating chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients at diagnosis or during disease course for the presence of TP53 gene variants indicating high risk of disease progression and adverse outcomes

 

This test is not intended for the evaluation of patients suspected of having an inherited or germline TP53 cancer syndrome (eg, Li Fraumeni syndrome)

Highlights

This test is complementary to fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis for the 17p- abnormality but more appropriately identifies the presence of variant alteration and gene inactivation in tumor cells.

Reflex Tests Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests.

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

Flow cytometry will be performed on peripheral blood samples to verify diagnosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and to selectively enrich for B-cells in samples with a clonal population.
