Clinical Details

Chromosomal translocations affecting the IGH locus are recurrent in many types of lymphomas. The malignant transformation works via the juxtaposition of oncogenes next to regulatory sequences of the immunoglobulin locus.

Due to the telomeric position of the IgH locus, 14q32.3 translocations may be easily missed by conventional cytogenetics. A break apart IGH probe covering the central IGHV region and located proximally from IGHJ close to the JAG2 gene, allows to identify most IGH rearrangements independent of breakpoint variations.

Clinical Applications

  • Multiple Myeloma and Plasma Cell Neoplasms (MM)
  • Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas (NHL)
  • Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)
