Genomic Testing Cooperative Receives Medicare (Palmetto GBA) Coverage for two NGS Hematology Molecular Profiling Tests Including Liquid Biopsy for Hematologic Neoplasms

GTC Receives Medicare Coverage for 2 NGS Hematology Molecular Profiling Tests Including Liquid Biopsy for Hematologic Neoplasms Irvine, California– June 19, 2019 – Genomic Testing Cooperative, LCA announced that the Medicare Administrative Contractor Palmetto GBA (MolDx®) has finalized its review and has established coverage for two Genomic Testing Cooperative (GTC) hematology profiles: GTC-Hematology (177 gene DNA profiling) and GTC-Hematology Plus (177 gene DNA and 1408 gene RNA profiling). The two Comprehensive Genomic Profile (CGP) tests are designed to help Pathologists and Hematologists/Oncologists in establishing the precise diagnosis, prognosis and determine therapy in hematologic neoplasms. The GTC Hematology test (177 gene DNA Profile) can be performed on cell-free DNA (cf-DNA) from […]

Acute Myeloid Leukemia | ASH Annual Meeting Abstract

Session: 613. Acute Myeloid Leukemia: Clinical Studies: Poster I Molecular Epidemiologic Associations in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) within the United States Dr. Albitar’s molecular work is presented at the ASH meeting in oral and poster presentations Saturday, December 1, 2018, 6:15 PM-8:15 PM | Hall GH (San Diego Convention Center) Background: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are heterogeneous groups of disorders with a spectrum of clinical presentations and outcomes. Prognosis depends on various factors including age, karyotype, performance status, previous treatments, and mutation status. Genetic profiling with next generation sequencing (NGS) is increasingly being used at diagnosis to detect presence of somatic mutations for […]
