Reference Range:See interpretive report.
Use:This test is indicated in the diagnostic workup of a person suspicious for myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) and for monitoring disease status. The 2017 WHO diagnostic criteria includes molecular testing for JAK2 V617F or JAK2 exon 12 mutations for PV. A positive JAK2 V617F mutation with other supporting clinical signs means it is likely that the person has an MPN. More than 90% of polycythemia vera (PV) patients and 60% of patients with essential thrombocythemia (ET) or primary myelofibrosis (MF) have a JAK2 V617F mutation.
