Hemophilia-Complete Genetic Panel


The type of factor VIII (8) or factor IX (9) mutation correlates with bleeding tendency and risk of inhibitor formation. The high price of recombinant coagulation factor replacement or potential gene therapy makes confirming diagnosis an important consideration for clinicians. Importantly, VWD type 2N is often misdiagnosed as Hemophilia A due to similar functional laboratory results. The clinical sensitivity of this test is approximately 98% for Hemophilia A, 99% for Hemophilia B and 85% for subtypes 2A, 2B, 2N, 2M and 3 vWD. Hemophilia A and VWD testing can be influenced by numerous factors, such as inflammation, stress, infection, hormone replacement therapy, age, acute phase response, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, exercise, ABO blood type, or lupus anticoagulant, making traditional diagnosis a challenge.

DESCRIPTION This test sequences the exons plus 5bp of the flanking introns of F8, F9, GP1BA, and VWF, plus deep intronic and promoter mutations that have been associated with disease. Additionally, this test looks specifically for the intron 1 and intron 22 inversions in F8 using custom PCR assays, which cause ~50% of severe hemophilia A cases. Sanger sequencing may be used to confirm variants as needed. Hemophilia A has a prevalence of 1:5000 (males). Hemophilia B has a prevalence of 1:25000. VWD occurs with bleeding symptoms at rate of 1 in 1,000 in the general population and in 10% of those cases the bleeding is severe. This prevalence makes VWD the most common congenital bleeding disorder known.
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.
