Description

Molecular tests are useful for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of haematological malignancies. The various molecular technologies include FISH, polymerase chain reaction, next generation sequencing etc. Today, we are moving towards personalised cancer therapy based on molecular profiling and prognostic markers predictive of drug sensitivity/resistance and adverse events.  In this presentation, noted haematologist, Dr. M.B.Agarwal discusses the clinically relevant molecular biology in leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.  

The various mutations in myeloproliferative neoplasms viz. Bcr-abl, JAK 2, CAL R, MPL, CSF 3R are explained in detail. Dr. Agarwal gives an overview of the molecular biology and testing in various MPNs such as chronic myeloid leukemia, polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia and primary myelofibrosis.

The presentation also includes the molecular biology and testing in myelodysplastic syndrome, paediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia, adult B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Waldenstromm macroglobulinemia and myeloma.
