Cholangiocarcinoma Profile
Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
Test Description
The NeoTYPE Cholangiocarcinoma Profile analyzes 19 biomarkers through a combination of next-generation sequencing (NGS), FISH, and IHC as listed below. Test orders include summary interpretation of all results to help guide treatment decisions.
  • NGS (15 genes + 2 biomarkers): APC, ARID1A, BAP1, BRAF, EGFR, ERBB2, HRAS, IDH1, IDH2, KRAS, MET (c-MET), NRAS, PBRM1, SMAD4, TP53, plus Microsatellite instability (MSI) and Tumor Mutation Burden (TMB).
  • FISH (1 biomarker): FGFR2
  • IHC (1 biomarker): PD-L1 22C3
Clinical Significance

The NeoTYPE Cholangiocarcinoma Profile is intended to detect genetic aberrations reported in cholangiocarcinoma to aid in diagnosis and prognosis of the disease.

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is an uncommon biliary tract cancer that typically presents at an advanced disease stage and is characterized by an aggressive disease course and poor clinical outcome.  The most commonly mutated genes include KRAS, BRAF, BAP1, and SMAD4, associated with cell signaling pathways (MAPK signaling), cell cycle control and chromatin dynamics.  Many potential therapies have been identified, including lapatinib (ERBB2), cetuximab and panitumumab (EGFR).  Other potential targets include IDH1/2 and PD-L1.jab

Specimen Requirements
  • FFPE tissue: Paraffin block preferred. Please use 10% buffered formalin fixative. Do not use zinc fixatives.
Storage and Transportation

Use cold pack for transport, making sure cold pack is not in direct contact with specimen.
