JAK-2 Mutation (CMPD) (V617F) ,Real-Time PCR

51+ booked in last 3 days

JAK2 Mutation Test Overview

The JAK-2 (Janus kinase 2) mutation, specifically the V617F variant, detected by Real-Time PCR, is notably associated with myeloproliferative disorders, collectively known as chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPD). This genetic mutation plays a pivotal role in the dysregulation of hematopoietic stem cell proliferation, leading to the overproduction of blood cells. Real-Time PCR, a highly sensitive molecular diagnostic technique, enables the detection of the JAK-2 V617F mutation in a patient's genomic DNA, aiding in the diagnosis and classification of CMPDs such as polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and primary myelofibrosis. Identifying the JAK-2 mutation by Real-Time PCR holds significant clinical relevance, helping clinicians tailor treatment strategies and monitor disease progression, ultimately improving the management of patients with these hematological disorders.

Frequently Asked Questions

This test measures the presence of a specific genetic mutation in the JAK-2 gene called V617F. This mutation is commonly associated with Polycythemia vera, Myelofibrosis, and Essential thrombocythemia. Detecting this mutation helps diagnose and monitor these blood disorders.

This test is done for the following reasons:

  • To diagnose and monitor Polycythemia vera, Myelofibrosis, and Essential thrombocythemia
  • To evaluate the effectiveness of treatment for these blood disorders
  • To identify individuals at risk for developing these conditions
  • To aid in making treatment decisions based on the presence or absence of the JAK-2 V617F mutation

Your doctor may recommend this test if you have:

  • Symptoms suggestive of Polycythemia vera, Myelofibrosis, or Essential thrombocythemia
  • Abnormal complete blood count results that indicate a possible blood disorder
  • A family history of these blood disorders
  • A previous diagnosis of these conditions and need to monitor treatment effectiveness

The normal range for this test is the absence of the JAK-2 V617F mutation. If the mutation is detected, it suggests the presence of Polycythemia vera, Myelofibrosis, or Essential thrombocythemia. Abnormal results require further evaluation and discussion with your doctor to determine the best course of action.

During this test:

  • A small sample of your blood will be collected using a needle
  • The blood sample will be sent to a laboratory for analysis
  • Real-Time PCR technique will be used to detect the presence or absence of the JAK-2 V617F mutation

To prepare for this test:

  • No special preparations are usually required
  • You can eat and drink normally before the test
  • Reach out to your healthcare provider about any specific requirements and medications you are taking as they may affect the test results

Other tests that may be ordered alongside the JAK-2 Mutation (CMPD) RT PCR test include:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC): Measures the levels of different blood cells and helps in diagnosing blood disorders
  • Bone Marrow Biopsy: Provides detailed information about the bone marrow, aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of blood disorders
  • JAK-2 V617F mutation test
  • JAK2 mutation analysis

Polycythemia vera, Myelofibrosis, and Essential thrombocythemia are three blood disorders characterised by abnormal production and function of blood cells. These conditions can lead to complications such as blood clots, bleeding, and an enlarged spleen.
