Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are neoplastic hematological disorders that arise from myeloid progenitor cells in the bone marrow. AML is characterized by the clonal expansion of myeloid blasts in the peripheral blood, bone marrow or other tissues, while MDS is characterized by the simultaneous proliferation and apoptosis of hemopoietic cells1.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the global incidence for MDS is 3-5 cases per 100,000 (non-age corrected) with approximately 10,000 new cases of MDS diagnosed annually in the USA1. The Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) statistics present a similar picture for AML with a USA incidence of 4.3 per 100,000 (non-sex specific)2.

CytoCell®: For In Vitro Diagnostic Use. Rx only. This product has not been validated for use on sample types other than bone marrow specimens, and has not been validated on disease types other than AML or MDS. The CytoCell AML/MDS range of FISH probe test kits are fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) tests used to detect common chromosomal rearrangements in fixed bone marrow specimens from patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). The tests are indicated for the characterization of patient specimens consistent with World Health Organization guidelines for Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues (Revised 4th Edition) and in conjunction with other clinicopathological criteria. The assay results are to be interpreted by a qualified pathologist or cytogeneticist. The tests are not intended for use as a stand-alone diagnostic, disease screening, or as a companion diagnostic.
