Leukemia Comprehensive workup panel -Acute Leukemia, Blood

50+ booked in last 3 days


Leukemia also known as blood cancer occurs due to abnormal growth and mutations of the white blood cells. This mutation majorly occurs in the bone marrow, but may be seen in the peripheral blood as well. Acute leukaemia leads to the production of blasts or immature WBCs that can interfere with the normal blood cells like RBCs and platelets. Acute Leukemia is mainly classified into two types -Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and Acute Lymphoid Leukemia (ALL). The Leukemia Comprehensive workup panel -Acute Leukemia, Blood comprises of series of tests that include morphological examination of the peripheral blood cells followed by genotyping of leukemic cells for further diagnosis or classification. This helps in the diagnosis and further classification of Acute leukaemia into the specific type (AML or ALL).

Frequently Asked Questions

The Leukemia Comprehensive workup panel -Acute Leukemia, Blood consists of morphological examination of peripheral blood smear followed by cytogenetic analysis to detect translocations and genetic mutations in AML and ALL cases using FISH.

Leukemia may often be asymptomatic in the early stages. People with following clinical signs should however, undergo the test:

  • Fatigue, easy tiredness
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Frequent infections, fever
  • Bone or joint pain and tenderness
  • Easy bleeding or bruising with red spots or purplish discoloration.
  • In case of abnormalities detected in the routine blood examination (CBC) along with other investigations, the Leukemia comprehensive panel may be useful for further diagnosis.
  • The test is done in patients in whom acute leukaemia or lymphoma is suspected.
  • To find out the type of Acute leukaemia (AML or ALL) based on the blood studies.
  • This panel aids proper diagnosis, helps in choosing the right treatment line and monitoring of the patient.

This test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.

The immunophenotyping of leukemic cells shows differential count of various blood cells.

Based on the differential count percentage, diagnosis of leukemia and its type can be made.

The positivity percentage of Lymphoid T cells, Lymphoid B cells, Myeloid cells and Monocytic cells is further indicative of the Leukemia diagnosis and its respective B - Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Leukemia Translocation Panel (AML)

Positive result may show translocation in INV 16 (P13;Q22), T(15;17) (Q21;Q22), T(8;21) (Q22;Q22) genes. Depending on the translocation type, the prognosis can be determined.

Leukemia panel by FISH - ALL, Leukemic Blood

Positive or abnormal results show rearrangements or mutations in E2A , TEL/AML1 ES, BCR/ABL or MLL genes.

Further correlation with clinical findings, bone marrow studies and cytogenetics studies should also be done.

Based on the results, the prognosis can be determined.

Morphological examination of Peripheral blood smear for abnormalities (Differential count, blasts, neutrophils, lymphocytes, eosinophils percentage), RBC structure and platelets examination is done.

The leukaemia cells may continue to multiply and develop into Lymphoid T cells, Lymphoid B cells, Myeloid and Monocytic cells.

The test is useful to detect translocation mutations in chromosomes INV 16 (P13;Q22), T(15;17) (Q21;Q22), T(8;21) (Q22;Q22).

The test is used for the detection of certain genetic mutations in ALL cases using FISH.
