Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 49-year-old man who presented to a medical facility with splenomegaly, vertigo, and a high white blood cell (WBC) count. Topics include a diagnosis of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), which is a genetic disorder characterized by the specific cytogenetic translocation t(9;22)(q34;qll.2), or Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome, a bone marrow biopsy, and a fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis indicating BCR/ABL1 gene fusion.

    Background: The BCR/ABL gene rearrangement is generated by a reciprocal translocation t(9;22)(q34;q11) in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. In most cases, it is cytogenetically visualized by the Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome. About 5-10% of CML patients lack cytogenetic evidence of the Ph...

    Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) is typically associated with reciprocal translocation between long arms of chromosome 9 and 22, t (9, 22) (q34; q11.2) and with the formation of a BCR-ABL fusion gene. In a minority of newly diagnosed CML cases, complex cytogenetic variants of the Ph chromosome...

    Background: Identification of specific chromosomal translocations is essential for the diagnosis and prognosis of leukemia. In this study, we employ DNA microarray technology to detect chromosomal aberrations in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML), as...

    Background: Recent reports indicate that prostate cancers (CAP) frequently over-express the potential oncogenes, ERG or ETV1. Many cases have chromosomal rearrangements leading to the fusion of the 5' end of the androgen-regulated serine protease TMPRSS2 (21q22.2) to the 3' end of either ERG...

    BACKGROUND The swim-up and hyaluronan (HA)-binding methods are used for the selection of good quality spermatozoa to improve pregnancy rates and embryo quality and to reduce the number of miscarriages after IVF. We evaluated whether the processing of sperm by these methods reduces the frequency...

    t(X;18)(p11;q11) translocation is the genetic aberration specific for synovial sarcomas. It results in fusion of SYT and an SSX gene leading to production of a chimeric protein SYT/SSX. The expression analysis of SYT/ SSX1 and SYT/ SSX2 chimeric transcripts was performed in formalin-fixed soft...

    Purpose: In pediatric alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, the PAX3- FOXO1 and PAX7- FOXO1 gene fusions are prognostic indicators, while little is known concerning this disease in older patients. To determine whether PAX3/7- FOXO1 fusion gene status correlates with outcome in adolescent, young adult, and...
