The ITM2B Gene Dementia Familial British Type Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic assessment offered by DNA Labs UAE, aimed at identifying mutations in the ITM2B gene, which are linked to the development of Familial British Dementia (FBD). This rare form of dementia is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, meaning a single copy of the altered gene in each cell is sufficient to cause the disorder. Symptoms typically emerge in mid-adulthood, leading to progressive cognitive decline, neurological problems, and movement disorders.

The test involves collecting a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw or cheek swab, which is then analyzed to detect specific genetic alterations in the ITM2B gene that are known to cause FBD. This genetic test is crucial for families with a history of FBD, as it can provide a definitive diagnosis for affected individuals, inform at-risk family members of their genetic status, and guide clinical management and surveillance for the condition.

Priced at 4400 AED, the ITM2B Gene Dementia Familial British Type Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE represents a significant step forward in the personalized diagnosis and management of this rare dementia, offering hope and clarity for affected individuals and their families.

Pre Test Information

Before undergoing the ITM2B Gene Dementia familial British type Genetic 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 ITM2B Gene Dementia familial British type.

Test Details

The ITM2B gene is associated with familial British dementia (FBD), a rare form of dementia. FBD is an inherited disorder that affects the brain, leading to progressive cognitive decline, behavioral changes, and movement problems.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) technology is utilized in this genetic test. NGS testing allows for the analysis of multiple genes simultaneously, enabling the identification of any mutations or variations associated with FBD. By analyzing the ITM2B gene, this test can identify the presence of any mutations.

If an individual has a family history of FBD or is experiencing symptoms such as cognitive decline, behavioral changes, or movement problems, undergoing NGS genetic testing for the ITM2B gene is recommended. Early diagnosis through this test can facilitate timely treatment and genetic counseling for at-risk family members.

Test Details

The ITM2B gene is associated with a rare form of dementia known as familial British dementia (FBD). FBD is an inherited disorder that affects the brain and causes progressive cognitive decline, behavioral changes, and movement problems.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing is a type of genetic testing that can analyze multiple genes at once to identify any mutations or variations that may be associated with a particular condition. In the case of FBD, NGS testing can be used to analyze the ITM2B gene and identify any mutations that may be present.

If a person has a family history of FBD or is experiencing symptoms of cognitive decline, behavioral changes, or movement problems, they may consider undergoing NGS genetic testing for the ITM2B gene. This can help with early diagnosis and treatment, as well as genetic counseling for family members who may also be at risk for the disorder.
