-11%

The Amino Acids Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) Panel Plasma Test is a specialized diagnostic examination conducted at DNA Labs UAE, aimed at detecting Maple Syrup Urine Disease—a rare, but serious, inherited metabolic disorder. This condition is named for the distinctive sweet smell of affected infants’ urine, reminiscent of maple syrup, and is caused by the body’s inability to break down certain amino acids properly, leading to their accumulation in harmful amounts.

Priced at 990 AED, the test analyzes a plasma sample to measure the levels of specific amino acids that are not properly metabolized in individuals with MSUD. Early detection through this panel is crucial, as it allows for the prompt initiation of dietary and medical interventions that can significantly improve outcomes and prevent serious complications associated with the disease, including neurological damage. DNA Labs UAE offers this test as part of its comprehensive suite of genetic and metabolic testing services, providing essential support for the diagnosis and management of inherited metabolic disorders.

Test Details:

The Amino Acids Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) Panel Plasma Test is a diagnostic test used to detect and monitor Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD). MSUD is a rare genetic disorder that affects the body’s ability to break down certain amino acids, leading to a buildup of these amino acids and their byproducts in the blood and urine. The test measures the levels of specific amino acids in the plasma, which can help diagnose MSUD and monitor the effectiveness of treatment.

The panel typically includes the measurement of leucine, isoleucine, and valine levels, as these are the amino acids that are typically elevated in individuals with MSUD. Elevated levels of these amino acids in the plasma, along with characteristic symptoms such as sweet-smelling urine and neurological problems, can confirm a diagnosis of MSUD.

The test is often performed in newborns as part of routine newborn screening programs to detect the condition early and initiate treatment promptly. The MSUD panel plasma test is a valuable tool in the diagnosis and management of MSUD, allowing healthcare providers to monitor the patient’s amino acid levels and adjust their treatment plan accordingly. Treatment typically involves a restricted diet low in certain amino acids to prevent the buildup of toxic byproducts and manage the symptoms of the disease.
