The FUS Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6 Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure available at DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify mutations in the FUS gene, which are associated with the development of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) type 6. ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, leading to muscle weakness and, eventually, severe physical disability. The FUS gene plays a critical role in the functioning of neurons, and mutations in this gene can lead to the familial form of ALS, which accounts for a small percentage of ALS cases.

This test is particularly important for individuals with a family history of ALS or those who have been diagnosed with ALS and are seeking a genetic explanation for their condition. By identifying the presence of FUS gene mutations, the test can provide crucial information for the diagnosis, prognosis, and potential treatment options for patients and their families. It can also aid in genetic counseling for family members who may be at risk.

The cost of the FUS Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6 Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. The test is conducted using a sample of the patient’s blood or saliva, which is then analyzed in the laboratory for the presence of genetic mutations in the FUS gene. The results of this test can have significant implications for the management and understanding of ALS, making it a valuable tool in the fight against this challenging condition.

FUS Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6 Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the FUS Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6 Genetic Test to help diagnose and predict the progression of this progressive neurodegenerative disorder.

Test Components and Price

  • Components: FUS Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6 Genetic Test
  • Price: 4400.0 AED

Sample Condition

We accept blood or extracted DNA samples for this test. Alternatively, you can provide one drop of blood on an FTA Card.

Report Delivery

Once the sample is received, the report will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Method

We use NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) technology to analyze the DNA sequence of the FUS gene.

Test Type

This test is specifically designed for the diagnosis of neurological disorders, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6.

Doctor and Test Department

The FUS Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6 Genetic Test is conducted by our experienced neurologist in the Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Before undergoing the FUS Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6 NGS Genetic DNA Test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient. Additionally, a genetic counseling session will be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by FUS Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 6.

Test Details

The FUS gene is associated with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Type 6, a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, resulting in muscle weakness and atrophy. Our NGS genetic testing method analyzes the DNA sequence of the FUS gene to identify any mutations or variations that may be linked to ALS Type 6. This test can assist in diagnosing the condition, predicting disease progression, and guiding treatment options.

It is important to note that genetic testing alone cannot confirm an ALS diagnosis. A combination of clinical evaluation, genetic testing, and other diagnostic tests may be necessary for a conclusive diagnosis. Furthermore, genetic testing can have implications for individuals and their families. It is advised to discuss the potential risks and benefits of testing with a healthcare provider or genetic counselor.
