Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing
Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.
Specimen must arrive within 96 hours of draw.
Preferred: Lavender top (EDTA) or yellow top (ACD)
Acceptable: Any anticoagulant
Specimen Volume: 3 mL
1. Invert several times to mix blood.
2. Send specimen in original tube.
1. Molecular Genetics-Colon Cancer Patient Information Sheet (Supply T521) in Special Instructions
2. New York Clients-Informed consent is required. Please document on the request form or electronic order that a copy is on file. An Informed Consent for Genetic Testing (Supply T576) is available in Special Instructions.
Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.
Note: No specimen should be rejected. If specimen is received in wrong anticoagulant or at an inappropriate temperature, include note to laboratory. If questions, contact the laboratory.
Specimen Stability Information Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the laboratory. Alternate acceptable temperature(s) are also included.
Clinical Information Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test
Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS) is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary cancer syndrome associated with germline mutations in the TP53 (also p53) gene. LFS is predominantly characterized by sarcoma (osteogenic, chrondrosarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma), young-onset breast cancer, brain cancer (glioblastoma), hematopoietic malignancies, and adrenocortical carcinoma in affected individuals. LFS is highly penetrant; the risk for developing an invasive cancer is 50% by age 30 and 90% by age 70 with many individuals developing multiple primary cancers. Childhood cancers are also frequently observed and typically include soft-tissue sarcomas, adrenocortical tumors, and brain cancer. Other reported malignancies include melanoma, Wilms tumor, kidney tumors, gonadal germ cell tumor, pancreatic cancer, gastric cancer, choroid plexus cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, esophageal cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, and thyroid cancer.
There are published criteria for the use in establishing a clinical diagnosis of classic Li-Fraumeni syndrome and Li-Fraumeni-like (LFL) syndrome that include the above features listed. A larger percentage of families that meet the classic LFS criteria, are predicted to have a detectable mutation within the TP53 gene than families that meet the less strict LFL criteria (Birch’s and Eeles’ definitions).
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.
All detected alterations will be evaluated according to the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (AMCG) recommendations. Variants will be classified based on known, predicted, or possible pathogenicity and reported with interpretive comments detailing their potential or known significance.
Cautions Discusses conditions that may cause diagnostic confusion, including improper specimen collection and handling, inappropriate test selection, and interfering substances
Some individuals who have a diagnosis of Li-Fraumeni syndrome or Li-Fraumeni-like syndrome may have a mutation that is not identified by this method (eg, deep intronic mutations, promoter mutations). The absence of a mutation, therefore, does not eliminate the possibility of a diagnosis of Li-Fraumeni syndrome or Li-Fraumeni-like syndrome. For predictive testing of asymptomatic individuals, it is important to first document the presence of a TP53 gene mutation in an affected family member.
In some cases, DNA alterations of undetermined significance may be identified.
We strongly recommend that asymptomatic patients undergoing predictive testing receive genetic counseling both prior to testing and after results are available.
Predictive testing of an asymptomatic child is not recommended.
Rare 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.
A previous bone marrow transplant from an allogenic donor will interfere with testing. Call Mayo Medical Laboratories for instructions for testing patients who have received a bone marrow transplant.
Test results should be interpreted in the context of clinical findings, family history, and other laboratory data. Errors in our interpretation of results may occur if information given is inaccurate or incomplete.

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
DNA sequence analysis is performed to test for the presence of a mutation in exons 1 through 11 of the TP53 gene.(Unpublished Mayo method) Array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) is used to test for the presence of large deletions and duplications. Mutation nomenclature is based on GenBank accession number; NM_000546.4.(Aradhya S, Lewis R, Bonaga T, et al: Exon-level array CGH in a large clinical cohort demonstrates increased sensitivity of diagnostic testing for Mendelian disorders. Genet Med 2012;14:594-603)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
Wednesday; 10 a.m.
Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.
Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result
Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded
Whole Blood: 2 weeks (if available) Extracted DNA: 3 months
Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test
