SUMMARY

Molecular diagnostics have an increasing impact on diagnosis, risk stratification and targeted treatment in haemato-oncology. In the framework of a pilot study for the implementation of next-generation sequencing in the Belgian healthcare system, the Commission of Personalised Medicine was founded to give professional and evidence-based advice on the molecular analysis in haemato-oncology. This paper describes its recommendations for NGS analysis in myeloid malignancies. In addition, the minimally required set of genes that must be analysed is defined and algorithms for molecular workflow in myeloid malignancies are proposed.

Cytogenetic and molecular testing in lymphoma patients

BJH - volume 9, issue 6, november 2018

P. Heimann MD, PhD, H.A. Poirel MD, PhD

SUMMARY

It is now well demonstrated that cytogenetic and molecular testing are valuable tools for the diagnostic, prognostication, and decision of treatment strategy in lymphoproliferative disorders. Here, we will give an overview of the genetic tests that represent current and future clinical assessment tools in the context of lymphoid malignancies. This review has been divided into two distinct but complementary parts. Part I will address the genetic aspects of low grade B-cell lymphomas and will very briefly describe the different technical methods that can be used in routine practice for the clinical management of lymphoid malignancies. Part II will cover aggressive B- and T/NK-cell lymphomas as well as Hodgkin lymphoma and will be published subsequently.
