The CACNA1A Gene Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic tool offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify mutations in the CACNA1A gene, which are associated with Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 (FHM1). FHM1 is a rare subtype of migraine with aura, characterized by temporary paralysis on one side of the body, visual disturbances, and in some cases, speech difficulties and confusion. The condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, meaning a mutation in just one of the two copies of the gene can lead to the disorder.

The test is crucial for individuals with a family history of FHM1 or those exhibiting symptoms, as a positive result can confirm the diagnosis, enabling tailored treatment plans and lifestyle adjustments to manage symptoms effectively. Additionally, it provides essential information for family planning decisions.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic diagnostics, the test involves analyzing the patient’s DNA sample, usually obtained through a blood draw or a cheek swab, to detect mutations in the CACNA1A gene. The cost of the test is 4400 AED, reflecting the intricate technology and expertise required to accurately identify the genetic variations associated with the condition.

This genetic test represents a significant step forward in personalized medicine, offering hope and clarity to families affected by Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1.

CACNA1A Gene Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the CACNA1A Gene Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 Genetic Test for individuals experiencing symptoms related to this condition. This test can help diagnose and manage familial hemiplegic migraine type 1 (FHM1), a rare form of migraine.

Test Details

The CACNA1A gene is associated with FHM1, which is characterized by severe headaches accompanied by temporary paralysis on one side of the body, visual disturbances, and other neurological symptoms. Our NGS (next-generation sequencing) technology allows us to analyze the DNA sequence of the CACNA1A gene to identify any mutations or variations that may be present.

Components and Price

The cost of the CACNA1A Gene Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 Genetic Test is AED 4400.0. The sample condition required for testing includes blood, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card.

Test Method and Type

We use NGS technology to perform the CACNA1A Gene Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 Genetic Test. This test falls under the category of neurological disorders and is conducted in our Genetics department.

Doctor and Pre-Test Information

A neurologist will oversee the CACNA1A Gene Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 Genetic Test. Before the test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is undergoing the test. Additionally, a genetic counseling session may be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by FHM1.

Report Delivery and Timeframe

The report for the CACNA1A Gene Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 Genetic Test will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks after the sample is received and analyzed.

Benefits of Genetic Testing

NGS genetic testing is a powerful tool that can not only confirm a diagnosis of FHM1 but also provide valuable information for managing the condition. For example, individuals with FHM1 may be advised to avoid certain triggers that can trigger migraines, such as stress, bright lights, or certain foods. Genetic testing can also identify other genetic factors that may contribute to the development of migraines or other neurological conditions, helping guide treatment decisions and improve outcomes.

Test Details

The CACNA1A gene is associated with a rare form of migraine called familial hemiplegic migraine type 1 (FHM1). This condition is characterized by severe headaches that are often accompanied by temporary paralysis on one side of the body (hemiplegia), visual disturbances, and other neurological symptoms.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing is a powerful tool that can be used to identify mutations in the CACNA1A gene that may be responsible for FHM1. This type of testing involves analyzing the DNA sequence of the gene to identify any changes or variations that may be present.

If a mutation is identified, it can help confirm a diagnosis of FHM1 and provide valuable information for managing the condition. For example, individuals with FHM1 may be advised to avoid certain triggers that can trigger migraines, such as stress, bright lights, or certain foods.

NGS genetic testing can also be used to identify other genetic factors that may be contributing to the development of migraines or other neurological conditions. This information can help guide treatment decisions and improve outcomes for individuals with these conditions.
