Nowadays human genetic laboratory diagnostics is driven by three forces: money , quality and quick adaptation of high throughput approaches. In other words, clinical laboratory geneticists (CLG) have to deliver quick, reliable and for low costs, a most comprehensive result for individual patients. In principal this is a positive development, as more and more genetic test results are extremely meaningful for diagnoses and therapy of constitutional and acquired diseases (e.g. ). At the same time… Expand
Importance of Databases for Human Genetic Diagnostics
TLDR
The identification of a genetic aberration and its exact characterization is not enough and it is duty of a diagnostic laboratory also to provide in the report information on previously reported comparable cases. Expand

TLDR
The growing insights into human chromosome structure finally lead to a “chromosomic view” of the three-dimensional constitution and plasticity of genes in interphase nuclei, and reconsiderations of the role of the chromosome and the single cell in Human Genetic research are urgently necessary. Expand
Regarding the rights and duties of Clinical Laboratory Geneticists in genetic healthcare systems; results of a survey in over 50 countries
TLDR
The first study on the rights and duties of CLGs is presented and the results of a survey performed in 35 European and 18 non-European countries with 100 participating specialists are presented. Expand

European registration process for Clinical Laboratory Geneticists in genetic healthcare
TLDR
Besides MDs and genetic counselors/nurses an EU-wide recognition system for Clinical Laboratory Geneticist has been established, which strengthens the status of specialists working in human genetic diagnostics in Europe and worldwide. Expand
Noninvasive Prenatal Testing - When Is It Advantageous to Apply
TLDR
NIPT is a fascinating possibility to gain information on unborn life from minimal amounts of DNA, however, it remains a pure risk estimation test directed towards the detection of specific chromosomal abnormalities from peripheral blood of the pregnant woman. Expand
Current perspectives on recommendations for BRCA genetic testing in ovarian cancer patients.
TLDR
All patients with invasive epithelial OC (excluding borderline or mucinous), including those with fallopian tube and peritoneal cancers, should be considered as candidates for referral for BRCA genetic testing, irrespective of age. Expand
Cost-effectiveness of methods in personalized medicine. Results of a decision-analytic model in patients with acute myeloid leukemia with normal karyotype.
TLDR
Evaluating cost-effectiveness of two different strategies of risk categorization in patients with AML, using a decision-analytic state-transition model shows that on average, individuals within the MGD group generated about US$ 32,000 higher costs but survived about seven months longer than individualsWithin the CCD group.

Next-generation sequencing for endocrine cancers: Recent advances and challenges
TLDR
This review focuses on recent discoveries in the use of next-generation sequencing methods for clinical diagnosis of endocrine tumors in patients and concludes with a discussion on persisting challenges and future objectives. Expand
Evaluation of three read-depth based CNV detection tools using whole-exome sequencing data
TLDR
Low concordances of CNV, detected by three different read-depth based programs, indicate the immature status of WES-based CNV detection, and suggests that CMA will continue to play an important role in detecting clinical grade CNV in the NGS era, which is largely based on WES. Expand
Comprehensive chronic lymphocytic leukemia diagnostics by combined multiplex ligation dependent probe amplification (MLPA) and interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization (iFISH)
TLDR
Both MLPA and routine iFISH have comparable detection rates for aberrations being typically present in CLL and both were superior to MLPA in samples with low tumor cell load, and thus a cost-efficient scheme for routine diagnostics is proposed. Expand
Effectiveness of whole-exome sequencing and costs of the traditional diagnostic trajectory in children with intellectual disability
TLDR
The increased causal variant detection yield by WES and the relatively high costs of the entire traditional diagnostic trajectory suggest that early implementation of WES is a relevant and cost-efficient option in patient diagnostics. Expand
Markers for the identification of late breast cancer recurrence
TLDR
Further research is needed to select individual biomarkers or multi-gene signatures that offer identification of late recurrence specifically and thus justify routine use of these tests in the clinical setting. Expand
Chromosomics
TLDR
Chromosomics includes research into chromatin-modification-mediated changes in the architecture of chromosomes, which may influence the functions and life-spans of cells, tissues, organs and individuals. Expand
