Clinical Practice Guidelines and Reports

AMP Clinical Practice Guidelines and Reports are developed to be of assistance to laboratory and other health care professionals by providing guidance and recommendations for particular areas of practice. The Guidelines or Report should not be considered inclusive of all proper approaches or methods, or exclusive of others. The Guidelines or Report cannot guarantee any specific outcome, nor do they establish a standard of care. The Guidelines or Report are not intended to dictate the treatment of a particular patient. Treatment decisions must be made based on the independent judgment of health care providers and each patient’s individual circumstances.

AMP makes no warranty, express or implied, regarding the Guidelines or Report and specifically excludes any warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular use or purpose. AMP shall not be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages related to the use of the information contained herein.

Current Projects

Molecular Markers for Colorectal Cancer

Being developed jointly by the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), the College of American Pathologists (CAP), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP).

Updated Guidelines for Lung Cancer Biomarkers

Previously developed jointly by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC), and the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP), the guideline will be updated as appropriate and guidelines for other biomarkers associated with lung cancer will be added as evidence-based research becomes available.
