Interpretive Data
Background information for Cystic Fibrosis, Nonclassic (CFTR)32 Mutations and 5T:
Characteristics of Nonclassic Cystic Fibrosis (CF)
: Findings are often limited to a single organ system such as isolated pancreatitis, bilateral absence of the vas deferens, nasal polyposis, or bronchiectasis.
Incidence of Classic CF:
1 in 3,000 Caucasians or Ashkenazi Jewish, 1 in 8,000 Hispanics, 1 in 15,000 African Americans, 1 in 32,000 Asians.
Incidence of Nonclassic CF
: Unknown.
Autosomal recessive.
: High for severe mutations, variable for mild mutations.
Cause of Nonclassic CF:
Typically one severe and one mild/moderate CFTR mutations on opposite chromosomes.
Mutations Tested
: G85E, R117H, R334W, R347P, R347H, 394delTT, A455E, I507del, F508del, V520F, G542X, S549N, S549R, G551D, R553X, R560T, 621+1G>T, 711+1G>T, 1078delT, R1162X, W1282X, N1303K, 1717-1G>A, 1898+1G>A, 2183AA>G, 2184delA, 2789+5G>A, 3120+1G>A, 3659delC, 3849+10kbC>T, 3876delA, 3905insT. The IVS-8/poly T variant is also analyzed.
Clinical Sensitivity:
Ashkenazi Jewish 94 percent; Caucasian 89 percent; Hispanic 73 percent; African American 65 percent; Asian American 55 percent.
: PCR, oligonucleotide ligation assay (OLA), fluorescent hybridization probes, and capillary electrophoresis.
Analytical Sensitivity & Specificity
: 99 percent.
: Diagnostic errors can occur due to rare sequence variations. Only the 32 CFTR mutations listed above, and the IVS-8 poly T site, will be interrogated.

See Compliance Statement C:
Statement C: The performance characteristics of this test were validated by ARUP Laboratories. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA approval or clearance is currently not required for clinical use of this test. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions. ARUP is authorized under Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and by all states to perform high-complexity testing.

Counseling and informed consent are recommended for genetic testing. Consent forms are available online.
ISV-8 is automatically analyzed and reported.
