Genetic classification of acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)  is the most common acute leukemia in children and accounts for approximately 30% of all cases of acute leukemia in adults. The disease is characterized by several genetic alterations of great clinical diagnostic importance, as recognized by the current WHO classification, and undoubtedly constitutes a role model for the current paradigm of precision diagnostics and precision medicine. In this context, RNA-sequencing is becoming an increasingly important tool as it can detect gene fusions in an unbiased manner and aid the subtype classification based on distinct gene expression signatures.

Read more and learn more about RNA-sequencing as an emerging clinical diagnostics tool and how Qlucore’s diagnostics solutions meets clinical diagnostic needs for robust and quality-controlled data analysis, visualization, and reporting.
