Cepheid Announces Release of Updated Xpert BCR-ABL Monitor Test
Date:8/9/2011

ransformed into a chronic condition with good long-term prognosis. Monitoring the levels of BCR-ABL mRNA transcript in the blood of CML patients on TKIs using real-time quantitative PCR has become standard of care in the management of CML. The goal of treatment is to reach a major molecular response (MMR), defined as a 3 log reduction (< 0.1%) in BCR-ABL mRNA levels from a standardized baseline defined by the International Scale(1,2). In order to accurately assess treatment response, it is essential that variability in testing methodologies be tightly controlled. This has resulted in substantial efforts to standardize BCR-ABL molecular testing across laboratories by introducing an International Scale(3).

The updated Xpert BCR-ABL Monitor is now available as a CE IVD Mark product. For more information, visit www.cepheidinternational.com for Cepheid's complete menu of CE IVD Xpert tests.
