Last time I got it done over a year ago my doc did it through LabCorp.   I am thinking of getting it done again and it would be through a different and regular doctor, so he may or may not have heard of it already...and I can't seem to find it on LabCorp's website(i checked their test list for both CD-57 and HNK).  Do they still do it?

Yeah, Labcorp does the CD57. I asked Quest to do it because Quest is covered by my insurance. However, Quest told me over the phone and in person at the lab that they do not offer a CD57. However, THEN, when my LLMD called BCBS for an 'exception', they would not give it to him, since, they claimed Quest could do it.

I swear, this is all a swindle.

What don't these nasty bugs cause? 
CD57= 60, so we're in pretty good shape.

rcenters,

Labcorp will probably not know what a CD57 is. Tell your doctor to request an Stricker NK Panel CD57. That is the correct name for it.

Here's a great site that explains the test and gives you some info about LabCorp:

Igenex does not perform the CD57 test
