Individual laboratories are responsible for meeting the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)/College of American Pathologists (CAP) quality assurance standards with respect to appropriate sample documentation, assay validation, general proficiency, and quality control measures. These ACMG Standards and Guidelines are developed primarily as an educational resource for clinical laboratory geneticists, to help them provide quality clinical laboratory genetic services. Adherence to these standards and guidelines is voluntary and does not necessarily ensure a successful medical outcome. These Standards and Guidelines should not be considered inclusive of al proper procedures and tests or exclusive of other procedures and tests that are reasonably directed toward obtaining the same results. In determining the propriety of any specific procedure or test, the clinical laboratory geneticist should apply his or her own professional judgment to the specific circumstances of the individual patient or specimen. Clinical laboratory geneticists are encouraged to document in the patient's record the rationale for the use of a particular procedure or test, whether it is in conformance with these Standards and Guidelines or not. They are also advised to take notice of the date on which any particular standard or guideline was adopted and to consider other relevant medical and scientific information that becomes available after that date. It would also be prudent for them to consider whether intellectual property interests may restrict the performance of certain tests and other procedures.

The term "heterozygous" simply implies that there are two different alleles present but does not imply any difference in activity, and could therefore be misleading.

clinical Validity and clinical utility
Currently, in both premenopausal and postmenopausal patients with invasive breast cancer involving estrogen receptor– positive tumors, long-term therapy with tamoxifen is the standard treat- ment.16 This treatment reduces the recurrence risk by 50%.17 The clinical outcome of interest is recurrence of cancer, but an intermediate end point could be endoxifen levels. Several studies have shown that circulating levels of endoxifen are lower in the presence of fewer functional CYP2D6 alleles.4,18 1846G>A
If lower endoxifen levels are associated with reduced effective- ness of tamoxifen therapy, CYP2D6 genotyping may provide useful information in personalizing cancer treatments. It has figure 2 pedigree showing possible allele patterns for *4 and *10

Therefore, using 20 nmol/l as the definition of a therapeutic level, identifying the PM genotype by CYP2D6 genotyping has a detection rate of 69%, and a corresponding false-positive rate of between 3 and 4%. That is, 31% of the patients with nontherapeutic levels of endoxifen would not be identified, and 3–4% of those classified as nontherapeutic would actually lie within the therapeutic range. Drug models show that, ulti- mately, only small levels of endoxifen are needed to block all receptor sites,17 implying that the suggested cause–effect rela- tionship between CYP2D6 status and sub-therapeutic endox- ifen concentrations may be only part of the story.

The Amplichip different variants, the report should include all the variants that platform that was cleared by the FDA for commercial use have been tested for, the methodology, the details of the assay, and its limitations. The NACB's Laboratory Medicine Practice Guidelines8 are in agreement in recommending that the list of table 4 CYP2D6 allele frequencies by race
nucleotide variants tested and detected be included in the report in the event that nomenclature systems change over time. The College of American Pathologists Molecular Pathology labora- tory checklist also requires the reporting of all gene loci tested CYP2D6 reports should have an interpretative component, which may include additional recommendations such as use of alternative therapies, altered dosage, avoidance of known CYP2D6 inhibitors, and other confounding clinical factors, if known. The CAP Molecular Pathology checklist requires that a test report include not only the variants tested for and detected, but also the analytic and clinical interpretation (if appropriate) of the results (MOL.36000). The interpretative report should effectively convey the result and its clinical ramifications to a "nonexpert physician."31 NACB guidelines concur that the information provided in the interpretative report should be "useful for guiding therapeutic management and decision making."8 The inclusion of suggestions for patient-specific dos- ages is not encouraged in reports because laboratories typically do not have relevant information (such as the patient's height and weight and concomitant medications) that can affect dos- ing. However, the reports could indicate whether lower or higher doses, or alternative drugs, may be considered.
The NACB also suggests that, in order to provide optimal interpretative guidance, the report should include, when pos- sible, specific information relating to the medications involved in the clinical situation. This implies that when a laboratory knows that CYP2D6 genotyping has been ordered for tamox- References used, geography covered: Bradford 2002 (worldwide summary),37 ifen therapy, interpretative information specific to tamoxifen Xie 2001 (worldwide summary),38 Zhou 2009 (limited information),39 should be provided.
