IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Chromosome Anomaly, Trisomy 8, Acquired
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended for use in identifying the acquired presence of three copies of chromosome 8 in a patient sample, rather than the normal two (i.e., trisomy 8). Acquired trisomy 8 is associated with chronic myelogenous leukemia and other chronic myeloproliferative diseases (e.g., polycythemia vera, idiopathic myelofibrosis), myelodysplastic syndromes, and acute nonlymphocytic leukemias.
