CALR Gene Mutation Exon 9 Test is used to help diagnose bone marrow diseases: myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), caused by mutations of the calreticulin gene (CALR).
What are the possible results and their meanings?
- Positive: A CARL mutation was detected during the test. But it’s not specific for diagnosis. Other tests are necessary.
- Negative: No CARL mutation was detected during the test. But it doesn’t mean there is definitely no CARL mutation.
- Equivocal: There is no definite medical decision about whether there’s a mutation of CALR.
