Clinical Information
Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test

Cystic fibrosis (CF), in the classic form, is a severe autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a varied degree of chronic obstructive lung disease and pancreatic enzyme insufficiency. The incidence of CF varies markedly among different populations, as does the variant detection rate for the variant screening assay. To date, over 1500 variants have been described within the CF gene, named cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). The most common variant, deltaF508, accounts for approximately 67% of the variants worldwide and approximately 70% to 75% in a North American White population. Most of the remaining variants are rather rare, although some show a relatively higher prevalence in certain ethnic groups or in some atypical presentations of CF such as congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD). Variants detected by this assay include the 23 variants recommended by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics as well as 83 other variants.

 

Of note, CFTR potentiator therapies may improve clinical outcomes for patients with a clinical diagnosis of CF and at least one copy of the G178R, G551S, G551D, S549N, S549R, G1244E, S1251N, S1255P, or G1349D variant. The G178R, S549N, S549R, S551D, and S1251N variants are included in this test.

 

These 106 variants account for approximately 91% of CF chromosomes in a Northern European White population. Detection rates for several ethnic and racial groups are listed in the table below. Note that interpretation of test results and risk calculations are also dependent on clinical information and family history.

Reference Values
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

An interpretive report will be provided.

Interpretation
Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

An interpretive report will be provided.

Cautions
Discusses conditions that may cause diagnostic confusion, including improper specimen collection and handling, inappropriate test selection, and interfering substances

This assay will not detect all of the variants that cause cystic fibrosis. Therefore, the absence of a detectable variant does not rule out the possibility that an individual is a carrier of or affected with this disease.

 

Test results should be interpreted in the context of clinical findings, family history, and other laboratory data. Errors in the interpretation of results may occur if information given is inaccurate or incomplete.

 

Rare alterations (ie, polymorphisms) exist that could lead to false-negative or false-positive results. If results obtained do not match the clinical findings, additional testing should be considered.

 

In rare cases, DNA alterations of undetermined significance may be identified.
