Hematological malignancies are characterized by multiple classes of chromosomal aberrations. Comprehensive detection of these aberrations is vital to properly classify samples and provide actionable information. Due to the limitations of current cytogenetic approaches, only a fraction of the samples evaluated lead to a positive aberration finding11-13. Optical genome mapping (OGM) significantly improves detection to unlock truly comprehensive chromosomal aberration profiles and maximize the number of informed cases.
Multiple peer-reviewed studies from global experts have demonstrated the same outcomes: OGM has a high correlation to results from traditional methods across diverse types of hematological malignancies, while consistently revealing additional pathogenic findings.
When compared to traditional cytogenetic methods, OGM can uncover up to twice as many pathogenic chromosomal aberrations.
In a 2022 MD Anderson Cancer Center study, OGM detected twice the number of clinically significant chromosomal aberrations as karyotyping in 101 myelodysplastic samples.8 This figure illustrates the Circos plot view of the variants identified by karyotyping (left) versus OGM (right).
High-resolution and enhanced characterization of samples by OGM also leads to better risk analysis and stratification of samples.
|Disease||Impact of OGM Analysis|
|AML and MDS9||For 67% of cases, the karyotype was redefined. In some cases, this led to an adjustment in ELN risk classifications|
|AML and MDS10||11% of samples for which OGM findings led to change in R-IPSS or 2010/2017 ELN score|
|MDS8||17% of cases assessed with OGM had the IPSS-R risk reclassified from initial karyotyping|
