* Panel makeup subject to change
Myeloproliferative disorders are a heterogeneous group of conditions that involve the abnormal growth of blood cells in the bone marrow. Included in this group are polycythemia vera, essential thrombocytosis, and primary (or idiopathic) myelofibrosis, also known as myelosclerosis. The prognosis for these diseases largely depends on the type of disorder; several FISH tests can be used prognostically and in conjunction with cytogenetic studies to monitor treatment progress.
