Factor XI (11) Gene Sequencing Assay

Justification

The type of mutation correlates with disease severity and likelihood of inhibitor formation. Mutation detection can confirm the diagnosis when the traditional lab workup is muddied by complicating factors like inflammation, stress, infection, hormone replacement therapy, age, acute phase response, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, exercise, ABO blood type, or lupus anticoagulant.

DESCRIPTION -
LIMITATIONS This test will not detect variants located outside of the targeted DNA regions. This test is not optimized to detect chimerism or somatic mosaicism. This test will detect small indels but may miss larger deletions or duplications. Balanced structural variants will not be detected unless specifically targeted by a custom PCR assay.
