A novel high-sensitivity assay to detect a small fraction of mutant IDH1 using droplet digital PCR

Detection of mutations in the isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) gene is useful for accurate diagnosis of lower grade gliomas, as described in the 2016 World Health Organization classification of tumors of the central nervous system. Conventional analysis tools, including Sanger DNA sequencing and immunohistochemistry, might fail to detect a small fraction… CONTINUE READING
