The LGI1 Gene Epilepsy Familial Temporal Lobe Type 1 Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, aimed at identifying mutations in the LGI1 gene that are associated with familial temporal lobe epilepsy type 1 (FTLE1). This condition is a form of epilepsy that typically affects families and is characterized by seizures originating in the temporal lobe of the brain. These seizures can manifest as sensory disturbances, emotional changes, or complex partial seizures that may progress to generalized tonic-clonic seizures.

The test involves collecting a DNA sample from the patient, usually through a blood draw or a cheek swab, which is then analyzed in the laboratory for specific genetic alterations in the LGI1 gene. Identifying mutations in this gene can confirm a diagnosis of FTLE1, which is crucial for tailoring treatment plans, managing symptoms more effectively, and providing genetic counseling for affected families.

The cost of the LGI1 Gene Epilepsy Familial Temporal Lobe Type 1 Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This price reflects the comprehensive nature of the genetic analysis, the expertise required to interpret the results, and the potential life-changing impact that a precise diagnosis can have for patients and their families. It’s an investment in understanding a genetic condition that affects not just the individual tested but can also have implications for their relatives, offering insights into inheritance patterns and risks for future generations.

Test Details

The LGI1 gene is associated with a rare form of epilepsy called familial temporal lobe epilepsy type 1 (FTLE1). This genetic test is used to identify mutations in the LGI1 gene that can cause FTLE1. FTLE1 is an autosomal dominant disorder, meaning that only one copy of the mutated gene is needed for the disorder to occur.

Symptoms of FTLE1 typically begin in adolescence or early adulthood and include seizures that originate in the temporal lobe of the brain. Other symptoms may include memory loss, confusion, and hallucinations.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) technology is used to analyze the LGI1 gene in this genetic test. This technology allows for rapid and accurate sequencing of large amounts of genetic material, making it an effective tool for identifying mutations in the LGI1 gene.

A positive result from this genetic test indicates that the individual has a mutation in the LGI1 gene and is at risk for developing FTLE1. Genetic counseling and regular monitoring may be recommended for individuals with a positive result.

A negative result indicates that no mutations were found in the LGI1 gene, but does not rule out the possibility of other genetic or environmental factors contributing to the development of FTLE1.
