The HTT Gene Huntington Disease Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure designed to identify mutations in the HTT gene, which are responsible for Huntington’s disease (HD). Huntington’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that affects movement, cognition, and can cause psychiatric disorders. The test is crucial for individuals with a family history of Huntington’s disease or those displaying symptoms, as it provides a definitive diagnosis and helps in planning the appropriate management and treatment strategies.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic testing, the test involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or cheek swab. The laboratory then analyzes the HTT gene for specific mutations known to cause Huntington’s disease. The focus is on the number of CAG repeats in the gene, as an increased number is directly linked to the development and severity of the disease.

The cost of the HTT Gene Huntington Disease Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. While the price might seem steep, the test offers invaluable information for affected individuals and their families, enabling them to make informed decisions about their health and future. It is recommended to consult with a genetic counselor both before and after the test to fully understand the implications of the results and to receive support in dealing with the outcomes.

HTT Gene Huntington Disease Genetic Test

Cost: AED 4400.0

Introduction

Huntington’s disease is a genetic disorder that affects the brain and causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells. The HTT gene is associated with this disease. The HTT Gene Huntington Disease Genetic Test offered by DNA Labs UAE is a comprehensive and accurate test that can help diagnose the disease, predict the likelihood of developing it, and identify carriers of the disease-causing mutation.

Test Components and Price

  • Test Name: HTT Gene Huntington Disease Genetic Test
  • Components: NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) technology
  • Price: AED 4400.0
  • Sample Condition: Blood or Extracted DNA or One drop Blood on FTA Card

Report Delivery

The test results will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Test Method

The HTT Gene Huntington Disease Genetic Test utilizes NGS technology, which is a high-throughput DNA sequencing technology. This technology allows for the rapid and cost-effective sequencing of large amounts of DNA, providing a comprehensive analysis of the entire HTT gene.

Test Type and Department

The test type is Neurological Disorders, specifically for Huntington’s disease. The test is conducted in the Genetics department of DNA Labs UAE.

Doctor and Pre-Test Information

The test should be ordered and interpreted by a qualified Neurologist. Before undergoing the HTT Gene Huntington Disease Genetic Test, the patient should provide their clinical history. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session is recommended to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by Huntington’s disease.

Test Details

The HTT Gene Huntington Disease Genetic Test involves sequencing the HTT gene to identify any mutations or variations associated with Huntington’s disease. This test can help diagnose the disease in individuals with symptoms, predict the likelihood of developing the disease in asymptomatic individuals, and identify carriers of the disease-causing mutation.

NGS technology allows for a comprehensive analysis of the entire HTT gene, including both coding and non-coding regions. This provides a more accurate assessment of an individual’s risk for Huntington’s disease compared to traditional sequencing methods.

It is important to note that this test should be performed in a clinical setting and should be ordered and interpreted by a qualified healthcare professional. Genetic counseling is also recommended before and after the test to discuss the implications of the results and provide support to individuals and families affected by Huntington’s disease.
