Genes Included On TMA Panel®
CFH (Complement Factor H)
CFI (Complement Factor I)
MCP (Membrane Co-Factor Protein or CD46)
CFB (Complement Factor B)
CFHR5 (Complement Factor H Related 5)
THBD (Thrombomodulin)

Multiple Ligation Probe Amplification (MLPA) is included in the testing to determine copy number variants over the complete complement Factor H related region.
Please print, complete and submit the Kidney Testing Requisition Form from the Molecular Otolaryngology & Renal Research Laboratory, to Specimen Control/Mailouts with the specimen and the Epic Requisition.

Reasons for Testing: Genetic testing for renal disease can provide important answers to many questions. By determining the cause of renal disease, information can be provided on recurrence chance, prognosis (whether a transplant might be successful or what type of transplant is necessary, i.e. kidney only or liver/kidney), and best methods of treatment.

Indications for screening: TMA Panel® testing is recommended for patients with TMAs including HUS, aHUS and TTP. This testing is also appropriate for patients with other complement- mediated renal diseases such as C3 Glomerulonephritis and Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis as 6 of the genes on the panel and MLPA testing have been associated with these diseases.

The TMA Panel® uses the newest DNA sequencing methods.
