Very Brief Blog: AMA Releases New Crop of PLA Code Applications

Every quarter, AMA accepts PLA code applications and posts them for public comment.  

Find the AMA PLA home page here.  Find the code candidates submitted for this quarter's review, here.

According to a separate AMA  calendar, codes were posted July 15 and parties can request permission to comment til July 22.

I tally about 30 code applications.  One is an edit, transferring ownership of a melanoma test from Myriad to Castle Biosciences.  There is a deletion request for the Veracyte Afirma MTC classifier for thyroid cancer.

Praxis Genomics applies for some elaborate CGP tumor codes, such as genomic analysis of tumor vs germline, plus optical genome mapping, plus other testing.
