Test Code TBBSM Quantitative Lymphocyte Subsets: T, B, and Natural Killer (NK) Cells, Blood

Additional Codes

MAYO: TBBS

EPIC: LAB3483

Reporting Name

QN Lymphocyte Subsets: T, B, and NK

Useful For

Serial monitoring of CD4 T-cell count in patients who are HIV-positive

 

Follow-up and diagnostic evaluation of primary immunodeficiencies, including severe combined immunodeficiency

 

Immune monitoring following immunosuppressive therapy for transplantation, autoimmunity, and other immunological conditions where such treatment is utilized

 

Assessment of immune reconstitution post hematopoietic cell transplantation

 

Early screening of gross quantitative anomalies in lymphocyte subsets in infection or malignancies

 

Absolute quantitation of circulating B cells for diagnosis of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia as indicated in the 2008 International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia guidelines

Performing Laboratory

Mayo Clinic Laboratories in Rochester

Specimen Type

Whole Blood EDTA


Ordering Guidance


This assay should not be used for diagnosing lymphocytic malignancies or evaluation of lymphocytosis of unknown etiology. For such cases, order LCMS / Leukemia/Lymphoma Immunophenotyping, Flow Cytometry, Varies, which includes a hematopathology review.

 

This assay can be used for absolute quantitation of B cells in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

 

While this assay can be used to follow patients on B-cell-depleting therapy, like Rituximab or Ofatumumab, it may be more reasonable and financially viable to use CD20B / CD20 on B Cells, Blood (includes CD45, CD19 and CD20 markers).
