NAACCR XML: Tumor.jak2

Janus Kinase 2 (JAK2, JAK 2) is a gene mutation that increases susceptibility to several myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). Testing for the JAK2 mutation is done on whole blood. Nearly all people with polycythemia vera, and about half of those with primary myelofibrosis and essential thrombocythemia, have the mutation. JAK2 analysis continues to increase in use for hematopoietic neoplasms.
JAK2 can be collected by the surveillance community for myeloproliferative neoplasms. Prior to 2018, HemeRetic SSF#1 was used for JAK2.
