Collapse Cell Free DNA Testing for Cancer: Clinical Validation, Implementation and Applications (CE Available)

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:

This webinar will address current concepts in the realm of cell free DNA testing for cancer, with an emphasis on the role of plasma-based testing in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma. Topics to be covered include: the process for validating and implementing cfDNA testing in the hospital setting, the clinical role for cfDNA testing in cancer patients with an emphasis on EGFR-mutated lung carcinoma, and approaches to next-generation sequencing for cfDNA. Practical issues will be emphasized, including clinical performance characteristics of available assays and specimen handling considerations. Selected studies demonstrating the future potential of cfDNA testing for cancer monitoring will be reviewed.

Collapse Dealing with Highly Homologous Genes in the Context of Medical Sequencing (CE Available)

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.

Collapse HIV Diagnostics: Updates in Laboratory Testing and Algorithms Interpretation

A Collaborative Educational Event Presented by AMP, PASCV and APHL

Description:

Laboratory diagnostics of HIV continue to evolve with antigen/antibody and molecular methods becoming increasingly more sensitive, specific, and rapid. Moreover, laboratory implementation of the CDC/APHL testing algorithm incorporating these assays may result in improved diagnosis of acute HIV but may also be challenging to interpret. The overall goal of this webinar is to discuss diagnostic methods for HIV and the current testing algorithm through the presentation of actual clinical cases. The webinar will conclude with a brief discussion of emerging or novel diagnostic methods and their impact on HIV diagnosis.

Description:

In this webinar, Antonia Sepulveda provides an overview of the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP), College of American Pathologists (CAP), Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP), and American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)'s evidence-based practice guideline on molecular marker testing for patients with colorectal carcinoma that identifies opportunities for improving patient outcomes.

The guideline addresses a wide range of molecular markers appropriate for testing in patients with early and advanced colorectal cancer which aids in establishing standard molecular marker testing to help guide targeted therapy decisions and advance personalized care for colorectal cancer patients.
