Design, Validation, and Implementation of Effective Quality Control Materials for NGS/NIPS in a Clinical Laboratory

As tests for large numbers of rare genetic conditions come on-line in clinical laboratories, it is becoming increasing difficult to obtain high-quality, well-characterized human samples to use for the purposes of test development, validation, and ongoing proficiency testing. The first presentation will review how the CDC GeT-RM program is helping laboratories access samples for these purposes. Non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPS) for the common triploidies, Down (T21), Edward (T18) and Patau (T13) syndromes, as well as numerical abnormalities of the sex chromosomes, is now firmly established as an extremely valuable screening tool. However, there is currently no universally accepted or adopted proficiency test (PT) for NIPS. The second presentation will review the substantial challenges in developing PT for NIPS, and review progress in its development.

- Identify the sample resources available to laboratories through the Get-RM program.

- Explain the challenges and current progress toward developing PT samples for NIPS testing.

This Award for Excellence talk discusses the foundations for discovering the genetic basis of common human diseases including the early development of theoretical methods for mapping the genes underlying polygenic traits; sequencing of the human genome comprehensive discovery of the genetic variation in the human population; systematic characterization of genomic features; and empirical insights into the genetic architecture of common human disease. It describes recent progress in genetic analysis of important diseases such as schizophrenia, heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease and obesity and close by looking forward to the years ahead.

- Recognize the history of discovering the genetic basis of human diseases.

- Analyze the characterization of genetic variation and genomic features.

This course is designed for pathologists, residents, laboratory directors and technologists who have some prior exposure to molecular diagnostic testing. The course features introductory information about the state of the science as well as a series of case studies illustrating some of the most current principles and practices in the field of Molecular Pathology. Attendees from all career levels will benefit from this staple offering.

 

The objective of this course is to increase basic and applied pathology knowledge, focusing on the molecular diagnosis of disease and to facilitate knowledge acquisition regarding issues and challenges related to care and prevention. This course is designed to meet the participants' educational needs in the physician competency area of Medical Knowledge, as defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), and to support participants' lifelong learning towards a goal of promoting patient safety and improving patient care.

Contemporary hot topics in the clinical molecular diagnostics laboratory will be introduced, followed by an overview of genomic testing to build the molecular diagnostic "toolkit." Short case presentations will demonstrate practical applications of a wide range of methodologies ranging from common commercial platforms to traditional amplification methods.

    Welcome to the Fellowship-in-Service-Examination brought to you by the Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Program Directors and the Association for Molecular Pathology.

    These exam questions were written by MGP faculty from many MGP-Fellowship institutions and cover the range of topics listed below. For each examination, a total of 45 questions populated from a question bank of approximately 200 questions will be randomly generated. At the end of the examination, you will receive your results along with the correct responses, an explanation of the correct choice, and references for further information. You will only receive this information for each question answered, so you are encouraged to answer all questions, regardless of whether or not you know the correct answer.

    You are welcome to take the exam as many times as you like, but please note that participants will be charged a small administrative fee ($25 for AMP members, $50 for non-members) each time they take the exam.

    Good luck!

    Recent definitions for clinical utility of molecular tests focus on whether a test result will alter treatment. This definition neglects other uses of molecular testing to diagnose disease, manage symptoms, prognosticate or predict future disease. The fullest realization of precision medicine will require embracing all aspects of clinical utility. This three-part webinar series, supported by AMP, presents the discussions of AMP’s Framework for the Evidence Needed to Demonstrate Clinical Utility (FEND) working group, and its resulting publication, “The Spectrum of Clinical Utilities in Molecular Pathology Testing Procedures for Inherited Conditions and Cancer: A Report of the Association for Molecular Pathology” (Joseph L, et al. J Mol Diagn. 2016;18[5]:605–619).

    This product will give you access to the webinar only. If you would like continuing education credit for the webinar, see the table below to purchase the webinar + CME/CMLE or webinar + SAM.


    Description:

    Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is used to interrogate large sets of genes in a diagnostic setting. Regions of high sequence homology are a major challenge and can lead to false-positive and false-negative diagnostic errors. This webinar will provide a perspective on how to deal with medically important genes that have high sequence homology in a diagnostic setting.

    In oncology, there are a variety of potential clinical applications for a minimally invasive blood test for DNA released from tumor cells. Such applications include detecting early stage disease, tracking response to therapy, prompt identification of disease relapse or recurrence, and recognition of clonal evolution.  Numerous small-scale studies have demonstrated that quantitation of mutations in circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is feasible from the blood of cancer patients. The increased adoption of targeted cancer therapies underscores the need to augment invasive tissue biopsies with alternative detection methods that rapidly monitor treatment response. Although most studies have been proof of principle, ctDNA methods hold great promise in cancer diagnostics.
