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

Ki-67(MIB-1 clone) is a monoclonal antibody that reacts with cells undergoing DNA synthesis by binding to the Ki-67 antigen, a marker known to be expressed only in proliferating cells. By measuring the amount of tumor cells expressing Ki-67, an estimate of DNA synthesis can be determined. Studies suggest that Ki-67(MIB-1) analysis of paraffin-embedded tissue specimens may provide useful prognostic information in various tumor types.

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.

Only orderable as a reflex. For more information see KI67P / Ki-67 (MIB-1), Pulmonary, Quantitative Immunohistochemistry, Automated.

 

Varies by tumor type; values reported from 0% to 100%

Interpretation
Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

Results will be reported as a percentage of tumor cells staining positive for Ki-67(MIB-1). Semi-quantitative Ki-67(MIB-1) results should be interpreted within the clinical context for which the test was ordered.

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

No significant cautionary statements

Method Description
Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

A 4-micron thick section is cut from the paraffin block. The section is stained with an immunoperoxidase method using the monoclonal antibody Ki-67 (MIB-1 clone). This is the paraffin nuclear epitope to the Ki-67 antigen. Any nucleus that has an antigen-antibody complex will cause the bright-field, brown chromogen, diaminobenzidine (DAB), to precipitate onto it. All nuclei, both DAB-positive and -negative, are counterstained with diluted hematoxylin.(Unpublished Mayo method)

Day(s) Performed
Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Monday through Friday

Specimen Retention Time
Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

1 week after results are reported. Material made at Mayo Clinic may be retained at Mayo Clinic indefinitely

Performing Laboratory Location
Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test

Rochester

Fees
Several factors determine the fee charged to perform a test. Contact your U.S. or International Regional Manager for information about establishing a fee schedule or to learn more about resources to optimize test selection.

Test Classification
Provides information regarding the medical device classification for laboratory test kits and reagents. Tests may be classified as cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used per manufacturer instructions, or as products that do not undergo full FDA review and approval, and are then labeled as an Analyte Specific Reagent (ASR) product.

This test was developed, and its performance characteristics determined by Mayo Clinic in a manner consistent with CLIA requirements. This test has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.

CPT Code Information
Provides guidance in determining the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code(s) information for each test or profile. The listed CPT codes reflect Mayo Clinic Laboratories interpretation of CPT coding requirements. It is the responsibility of each laboratory to determine correct CPT codes to use for billing.

CPT codes are provided by the performing laboratory.
