NEHODS Clonality Testing

NEHODS Clonality Testing

In partnership with the North East Haemato-Oncology Diagnostic Service (NEHODS) NewGene offers testing for T and B cell clonality.

Standard histopathological diagnosis of malignant lymphoma can be challenging. The use of a PCR based assay for the identification of clonal populations is a valuable tool as in principle B- and T-cell lymphomas are clonal diseases.

The PCR based test amplifies targeted regions of DNA in the conserved regions of antigen receptor genes that lie on either side of an area within the V-J region where programmed genetic rearrangements occur during maturation of all B and T lymphocytes. The antigen receptor genes that undergo rearrangement are the immunoglobulin heavy chain (IGH) & light chains genes (IGK) in B-cells, and the T cell receptor genes (TCR) in T-cells.
