Detection method: reverse transcription + real-time PCR

This in vitro diagnostic kit is intended for prognosis assessment in CLL patients by analysis of cDNA (reverse transcribed RNA) samples of human B lymphocytes obtained from peripheral blood. The kit is based on reverse transcription together with quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) using fluorescently labelled probes.

Clinical implications of the CE IVD kit

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) occurs mostly in elderly people (median age 65 years) and is the most common leukemia in Europe and North America where CLL comprises of about 30 % of leukemic diseases of adults. The frequency of CLL is approximately two-times higher in men than in women. IGHV mutational status analysis helps to better predict disease progression and patient survival.

Somatic hypermutation of IGHV is the physiological process that leads to an increase in antibody diversity. In patients with mutated IGHV, better prognosis with a slower progression of disease and a longer patient´s survival can be observed. In those with unmutated IGHV a worse clinical course and prognosis can be expected.The kit contains all components necessary for analysis of gene expression. Two of six genes are housekeeping genes (B2M, HPRT1) and three of them are target genes (LPL, ZAP70 and COBLL1). The remaining gene CD3D serves as contamination marker (sample contamination by T lymphocytes).

gb SG PCR Master Mix falls into a group of Real-Time PCR Master Mixes to provide Dye-based qPCR. The product consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP, MgCl2, sybrgreen and additives that prevent PCR inhibition. Taq polymerase is chemically modified DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus. This polymerase is completely inactive at room temperature but it is rapidly activated during the initial denaturation step of PCR.

Background Probiotics are defined as live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. For instance, probiotics can be used in the treatment and prevention of infections and chronic inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. Due to their health attributes, probiotics generate considerable interest in the area of functional
