Test Catalog

Test ID: NGAML    
Next-Generation Sequencing, Acute Myeloid Leukemia, 11-Gene Panel

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

Evaluation of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) using a focused 11-gene panel at the time of diagnosis or possibly at relapsed/refractory disease, to assist in appropriate classification, prognosis, and therapeutic management of patients

 

Evaluation to determine if a different gene mutation profile is present at the time of AML relapse

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

This test includes next-generation sequencing to evaluate for the following 11 genes: CEBPA, DNMT3A, FLT3, IDH1, IDH2, KIT, KRAS, NPM1, NRAS, RUNX1, and TP53.

Highlights

Next-generation sequencing detection of somatic gene mutations, including type, pattern, and distribution, has diagnostic, prognostic, and potential therapeutic implications for patients with hematologic cancers, such as acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

 

This test enables more accurate classification and prognostic assessment of acute myeloid leukemias (AML).

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