Cervical Cancer,Terc,Fish

The Cervical Cancer,Terc,Fish test contains 1 test.

This FISH assay detects increases in the copy number of the telomerase component gene TERC in cervical cytology specimens, which is a finding common in high-grade squamous intraepithelial neoplasia (HSIL) and invasive carcinoma. A positive result in this assay is presence of extra copies of the TERC gene by either locus-specific 3q26 amplification or polysomy of chromosome 3. This is associated with HSIL and a subset of ASC-H which may require more intensive follow-up.
