The Immunohistochemistry CD117 Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure employed to detect the presence of the CD117 protein, also known as c-Kit, on the surface of cells in various tissue samples. This test is particularly significant in the field of medical diagnostics as CD117 is a crucial marker for certain types of cancer, including gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) and mast cell disorders. By identifying the presence of CD117, healthcare professionals can make informed decisions regarding the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment options for patients.

Performed in the sophisticated laboratory settings of DNA Labs UAE, the test involves the application of specific antibodies against the CD117 antigen on tissue sections, which are then visualized under a microscope. This allows pathologists to assess the expression pattern and intensity of CD117, providing critical insights into the nature of the tissue being examined.

The cost of the Immunohistochemistry CD117 Test at DNA Labs UAE is set at 410 AED. This fee covers the technical and professional expertise required to conduct the test, ensuring accurate and reliable results. Patients undergoing this test at DNA Labs UAE can expect a high standard of diagnostic service, backed by state-of-the-art technology and a team of experienced pathologists and technicians.

Test Details

The IMMUNOHISTOCHEMISTRY CD117 Test is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence of CD117, also known as c-Kit, in tissue samples. CD117 is a protein found on the surface of certain cells, including hematopoietic stem cells and mast cells. It plays a crucial role in cell growth and differentiation.

The CD117 test is commonly used in the diagnosis and classification of various cancers, particularly gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). GISTs are tumors that arise from the cells of the gastrointestinal tract and are characterized by the presence of a mutation in the c-Kit gene.

The CD117 test helps identify the presence of CD117/c-Kit protein on the tumor cells, confirming the diagnosis of GIST. The test is performed on tissue samples obtained through a biopsy or surgical resection. The tissue sample is processed, embedded in paraffin, and cut into thin sections. These sections are then mounted onto glass slides and subjected to a series of staining procedures using specific antibodies against CD117.

The antibodies bind to the CD117 protein, and the resulting staining pattern can be visualized under a microscope. A positive CD117 test indicates the presence of CD117 protein on the tumor cells, suggesting a diagnosis of GIST or other CD117-positive cancers. This information is crucial for determining the appropriate treatment options, as some targeted therapies specifically target the CD117 protein.

It is important to note that the CD117 test is just one component of a comprehensive diagnostic workup and should be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical and pathological findings. A pathologist with expertise in immunohistochemistry will evaluate the stained slides and provide a report on the results of the CD117 test.
