Assessing T-cell function in patients on immunosuppressive therapy, including solid-organ transplant patients

 

Evaluating patients suspected of having impairment in cellular immunity

 

Evaluation of T-cell function in patients with primary immunodeficiencies, either cellular (DiGeorge syndrome, T-negative severe combined immunodeficiency: SCID, etc) or combined T- and B-cell immunodeficiencies (T- and B-negative SCID, Wiskott Aldrich syndrome, ataxia telangiectasia, common variable immunodeficiency, among others) where T-cell function may be impaired

 

Evaluation of T-cell function in patients with secondary immunodeficiency, either disease related or iatrogenic

 

Evaluation of recovery of T-cell function and competence following bone marrow transplantation or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

Reflex Tests Lists test(s) that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial test(s)

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If insufficient peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are isolated from the patient's sample due to low WBC counts or specimen volume received, selected dilutions or stimulants may not be tested at the discretion of the laboratory to ensure the most reliable results. Testing with 1 stimulant will always be performed. When adequate specimen is available for both stimulants to be tested, an additional test code will be reflexed and billed separately.
