Slide 1

December 2008

Welcome to Mayo Medical Laboratories' Hot Topics. These presentations provide short discussions of current topics and may be helpful to you in your practice.

Our presenter for this program is Dr. Linnea Baudhuin, Co-Director of the Nucleotide Polymorphism Laboratory and Co-Director of Cardiovascular Laboratory Medicine, in the Division of Clinical Biochemistry and Immunology at Mayo Clinic. Dr. Baudhuin will be discussing the use of Mayo's recently introduced reflex panel for diagnosis of autosomal dominant hypercholesterolemia (ADH). Use of this genetic testing panel to identify the mutations in some of the various genes involved in ADH provides a cost-effective strategy for a definitive diagnosis of a genetic disease.
