EML4 ALK Gene Fusion, PCR

The EML4 ALK Gene Fusion, PCR test contains 1 test.

Recently, inhibitors of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) have been used successfully in treating patients harboring gene fusions between echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like 4 (EML4) and ALK. This is a reverse transcription PCR-based exon scanning approach to encompass fusion variants spanning nearly the entire EML4 gene.
