Single-nucleotide polymorphism can aid the prognostics of of patients with idiopathic cytopenia of undetermined significance (ICUS)

In this MEDtalk Stine Mikkelsen present the first study investigating submicroscopic copy number variations/ uniparental disomy in idiopathic cytopenia of undetermined significance patients. In a subset of patients with otherwise no detectable genetic abnormalities, Stine Mikkelsen and colleagues identified structural variations involving genes recurrently affected in MDS. Their results suggest that SNP-A can aid the prognostics of ICUS patients by identifying submicroscopic structural variations as risk markers for poor OS.
