The EIF2B5 gene leukoencephalopathy with vanishing white matter is a rare genetic disorder that affects the brain’s white matter, leading to a progressive loss of brain function. This condition is caused by mutations in the EIF2B5 gene, which plays a crucial role in protein synthesis and the stress response in cells. Symptoms of this disorder can include motor dysfunction, coordination problems, spasticity, and in severe cases, coma or death. Early diagnosis is vital for managing symptoms and improving the quality of life.

To diagnose this condition, a genetic test is available at DNA Labs UAE, specifically targeting the EIF2B5 gene to identify mutations responsible for the disorder. The test cost is set at 4400 AED. This specialized testing is crucial for families seeking answers about this condition, offering them the possibility of genetic counseling and the potential for targeted therapies. The test is performed in a state-of-the-art facility, ensuring accurate and reliable results for those affected by this challenging condition.

Test Details

The EIF2B5 gene is associated with a condition called leukoencephalopathy with vanishing white matter (VWM). VWM is a rare genetic disorder that affects the central nervous system, particularly the white matter of the brain. NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) genetic testing is a type of genetic test that can analyze multiple genes simultaneously.

In the context of leukoencephalopathy with vanishing white matter, NGS genetic testing can be used to identify mutations or changes in the EIF2B5 gene that are associated with the condition. This type of genetic testing can help confirm a diagnosis of VWM in individuals with symptoms suggestive of the disease. It can also be used for carrier testing in individuals with a family history of VWM, as the condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.

Genetic testing can provide valuable information for individuals and families affected by VWM, including prognosis, genetic counseling, and potential treatment options. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional or genetic counselor to discuss the benefits, limitations, and implications of genetic testing before undergoing the test.
