This test is performed by the sequencing the entire coding regions of the genes listed. ABL1, ASXL1, ATRX, BCOR, BCORL1, BRAF, CALR, CBL, CBLB, CBLC, CDKN2A, CEBPA, CSF3R, CUX1, DDX41, DNMT3A, ETNK1, ETV6, EZH2, FBXW7, FLT3, GATA1, GATA2, GNAS, GNB1, HRAS, IDH1, IDH2, IKZF1, JAK2, JAK3, KDM6A, KIT, KMT2A, KRAS, MPL, MYD88, NF1, NOTCH1, NPM1, NRAS, PDGFRA, PHF6, PML, PPM1D, PTEN, PTPN11, RAD21, RUNX1, SETBP1, SF3B1, SH2B3, SMC1A, SMC3, SRSF2, STAG2, STAT3, STAT5B, TET2, TP53, U2AF1, WT1, ZRSR2.
Note: FLT3 by PCR (via FLT3 Mutation Analysis) is available to be ordered, as Client-Bill only, in conjunction with the NeoTYPE Myeloid Disorders Profile. It is reported separately from the NeoTYPE Profile for the purpose of prompt therapy selection in patients with a new diagnosis of AML.
The NeoTYPE Myeloid Disorders Profile is a 63 gene panel that targets known mutations associated with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML). Testing using this panel can aid in making therapy decisions, predicting prognosis, and can be used in clinical research. This is a generic and comprehensive profiling of myeloid neoplasms.
- Bone marrow (Preferred): 2 mL in EDTA tube.
- Peripheral blood: 5 mL in EDTA tube.
- FFPE tissue: Paraffin block. Alternatively, send 1 H&E slide plus 10-14 unstained slides cut at 5 or more microns. Please use positively-charged slides and 10% NBF fixative is the recommended fixative. Do not use zinc or mercury fixatives (B5). Highly acidic or prolonged decalcification processes will not yield sufficient nucleic acid to accurately perform molecular studies.
Use cold pack for transport, making sure cold pack is not in direct contact with specimen. Ship same day as drawn whenever possible; specimens <7 days old preferred.
