Recent evidence indicates that the presence of epidermal growth factor receptor ( EGFR ) or KRAS mutations in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) can predict the response of the tumor to gefinitib. However, it is difficult to detect these mutations using formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE)...
To assess the clinical utility of genome-wide oligonucleotide arrays in diagnosis of mental retardation and to address issues relating to interpretation of copy number changes (CNCs), we collected results on a total of 1499 proband patients from five academic diagnostic laboratories where the...
Warfarin exhibits significant interindividual variability in dosing requirements. Different drug responses are partly attributed to the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that influence either drug action or drug metabolism. Rapid genotyping of these SNPs helps clinicians to choose...
Detecting clonal T-cell receptor ( TCR )- gene rearrangements (GRs) is an important adjunct test for diagnosing T-cell lymphoma. We compared a recently described assay (BIOMED-2 protocol), which targets multiple variable (V) gene segments in two polymerase chain reaction (PCR) reactions...
A multiplex real-time polymerase chain reaction procedure was developed to identify the most prevalent clinical isolates of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica. Genes from the rfb , fliC , fljB , and viaB groups that encode the O, H, and Vi antigens were used to design 15 primer pairs and TaqMan...
The 22q11 deletion syndrome, which is caused by a 1.5- to 3.0-megabase hemizygous deletion in chromosome 22q11.2, has a prevalence of 1/2000 to 1/4000. However, the syndrome presents with highly variable phenotypes and thus may be underestimated among Danish newborns. To establish a true...
Specific chromosomal alterations are recognized as important prognostic factors in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Array-based karyotyping is gaining acceptance as an alternative to the standard fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) panel for detecting these aberrations. This study...
EGFR mutations are the best predictors of response to EGFR kinase inhibitors in lung adenocarcinoma. We evaluated two mutation-specific monoclonal antibodies for the detection of EGFR mutations by immunohistochemistry (IHC), generated respectively against the L858R mutant and the exon 19 mutant...
Abstract This correspondence addresses J Mol Diagn 2009, 11:311–318, on the advantages and disadvantages of using SURVEYOR in molecular diagnostic mutation detection. Authors Reply: Constantinos Deltas and Konstantinos Voskarides University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus
The utility of quantitative molecular diagnostics for patient management depends on the ability to relate patient results to prior results or to absolute values in clinical practice guidelines. To do this, those results need to be comparable across time and methods, either by producing the same...
