Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: NGAML    
Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), Acute Myeloid Leukemia, 8-Gene Panel

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Evaluation of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) at the time of diagnosis, to assist in appropriate classification and prognosis, using an 8-gene panel

 

Evaluation to determine if a different gene mutation profile is present at the time of AML relapse

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct test or proper submission of the test request

This test includes next-generation sequencing to evaluate for the following 8 genes: CEBPA, FLT3, IDH1, IDH2, KRAS, NPM1, NRAS, and TP53.

Highlights

Next-generation sequencing detection of somatic gene mutations, including type, pattern, and distribution, has diagnostic, prognostic, and potential therapeutic implications for patients with hematologic cancers.

 

This test enables more accurate classification of acute myeloid leukemias (AML).

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