About FLT3 testing:
Acute myeloid leukemia, AML, is the most prevalent acute adult leukemia. Approximately 30,000 people in the United States and Europe will be diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2013 and 20,000 will die of this disease. FLT3 internal tandem duplication mutations (also termed FLT3-ITDs or FLT3 length mutations) are present in approximately 25% of AML patients and represent the single most important prognostic indicator of outcome for patients with cytogenetically normal AML. Accordingly, FLT3-ITD mutation testing is an obligate standard of care in the diagnostic assessment of AML patients as determined by the World Health Organization and leading cancer treatment centers worldwide.
