Title Diagnostic use of IDH1/2 mutation analysis in routine clinical testing of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded glioma tissues.
Abstract Text Mutations in isocitrate dehydrogenase enzyme isoforms 1 (IDH1) and 2 (IDH2) have been identified in many adult astrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas. These mutations are targeted to specific codons (e.g. R132 in IDH1 and R172 in IDH2), making assays to detect them in clinical specimens feasible. We describe a simple and accurate molecular assay for detection of IDH1/2 mutations on routine formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues. Using this polymerase chain reaction-based assay, we tested 75 glial neoplasms and 57 nonneoplastic conditions that can mimic gliomas including radiation changes, viral infections, and infarcts. Of the gliomas, 37 (49%) were positive for IDH1 or IDH2 mutations; the most common mutation was IDH1 (97%). Two of 12 gangliogliomas were positive for IDH1 mutation, and both had unfavorable clinical outcomes (p < 0.03). None of the nonneoplastic cases were positive for IDH mutations. The assay detected IDH mutations in biopsy material containing mostly glioma and in concomitant near-miss stereotactic core biopsies that were otherwise equivocal for the presence of glioma by light microscopy. These results indicate that testing for IDH1/2 mutations can be effectively performed in a clinical setting and can enhance the accuracy of diagnosis of gliomas when traditional diagnostic methods are not definitive.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.
