    Description:

    Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is used to interrogate large sets of genes in a diagnostic setting. Regions of high sequence homology are a major challenge and can lead to false-positive and false-negative diagnostic errors. This webinar will provide a perspective on how to deal with medically important genes that have high sequence homology in a diagnostic setting.

    Collapse HIV Diagnostics: Updates in Laboratory Testing and Algorithms Interpretation

    A Collaborative Educational Event Presented by AMP, PASCV and APHL

    Description:

    Laboratory diagnostics of HIV continue to evolve with antigen/antibody and molecular methods becoming increasingly more sensitive, specific, and rapid. Moreover, laboratory implementation of the CDC/APHL testing algorithm incorporating these assays may result in improved diagnosis of acute HIV but may also be challenging to interpret. The overall goal of this webinar is to discuss diagnostic methods for HIV and the current testing algorithm through the presentation of actual clinical cases. The webinar will conclude with a brief discussion of emerging or novel diagnostic methods and their impact on HIV diagnosis.

    Collapse Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Technologies for HIV Drug Resistance Testing

    HIV-1 exists within individuals as a complex mixture of variants often referred to as a quasispecies. During the past 10 years, there have been many studies of the distribution and clinical significance of "low-abundance" or "minority" drug-resistance variants present in plasma in proportions below 20% to 30% -- the limit of detection of standard genotypic resistance testing using dideoxy-terminator "Sanger" sequencing. HIV-1 "deep" sequencing using NGS technologies have been widely used in research settings to study the clinical significance of low-abundance drug resistance mutations. In addition, NGS is commercially available for several niche clinical applications such as determining HIV-1 tropism before using a CCR5 inhibitor.
    In this webinar, Dr. Shafer will review the scenarios in which low-abundance HIV-1 drug-resistance mutations are most clinically relevant, the most influential studies of NGS for HIV-1 drug resistance testing, and the practical aspects of NGS that have so far slowed its widespread adoption for most routine HIV-1 genotypic resistance testing.

    Collapse Promises and Pitfalls of Circulating Tumor DNA

    In oncology, there are a variety of potential clinical applications for a minimally invasive blood test for DNA released from tumor cells. Such applications include detecting early stage disease, tracking response to therapy, prompt identification of disease relapse or recurrence, and recognition of clonal evolution.  Numerous small-scale studies have demonstrated that quantitation of mutations in circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is feasible from the blood of cancer patients. The increased adoption of targeted cancer therapies underscores the need to augment invasive tissue biopsies with alternative detection methods that rapidly monitor treatment response. Although most studies have been proof of principle, ctDNA methods hold great promise in cancer diagnostics.

    Collapse The Spectrum of Clinical Utilities in Molecular Pathology Testing Procedures for Inherited Conditions and Cancer

    Recent definitions for clinical utility of molecular tests focus on whether a test result will alter treatment. This definition neglects other uses of molecular testing to diagnose disease, manage symptoms, prognosticate or predict future disease. The fullest realization of precision medicine will require embracing all aspects of clinical utility. This three-part webinar series, supported by AMP, presents the discussions of AMP’s Framework for the Evidence Needed to Demonstrate Clinical Utility (FEND) working group, and its resulting publication, “The Spectrum of Clinical Utilities in Molecular Pathology Testing Procedures for Inherited Conditions and Cancer: A Report of the Association for Molecular Pathology” (Joseph L, et al. J Mol Diagn. 2016;18[5]:605–619).

    Collapse The Who, What, and When of the PAMA Final Rule

    Just released are the final regulations of The Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) Section 216. PAMA significantly revises the Medicare payment system for clinical diagnostic laboratory tests by requiring that Medicare payment for clinical laboratories be based on the weighted median of private payer rates along with a number of other provisions.

     

    Please note that details on this final rule are still being elucidated and additional specifics are expected to be introduced by CMS in the coming months. Therefore, this webcast is just the first AMP educational event on PAMA implementation. The AMP Economic Affairs Committee will continue to update membership as details emerge and the committee is organizing a session on PAMA at this year's annual meeting.

    Dr. Perret reviews the epidemiology of the Zika outbreak in Latin America, some clinical aspects, evidence of a Zika infection, and its complications (congenital disease and Guillain Barre Syndrome). In addition, she will discuss the local response to a series of travelers infected with Zika, including a pregnant woman and a sexually transmitted infection.

    Zika Virus Diagnostics by Dr. Benjamin Pinsky

    Zika virus (ZIKV) is an Aedes mosquito-borne flavivirus that emerged in Brazil in 2015 and then rapidly spread throughout the tropical and subtropical Americas. Based on clinical criteria alone, ZIKV cannot be reliably distinguished from infections with other pathogens that cause an undifferentiated systemic febrile illness, including infections with two common arboviruses, dengue virus and chikungunya virus. This presentation details the methods that are available to diagnose ZIKV infection.
