The NTF4 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1F Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic assessment offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to detect mutations in the NTF4 gene, which have been associated with the development of open-angle glaucoma, specifically type 1F. Open-angle glaucoma is the most common form of glaucoma, characterized by the gradual loss of vision due to damage to the optic nerve, often without early symptoms. Mutations in the NTF4 gene can lead to reduced neurotrophin-4 protein levels, which is crucial for the survival of retinal ganglion cells. Identifying mutations in this gene can provide crucial information for the early detection and management of glaucoma, potentially preserving vision.

The test is priced at 4400 AED and is conducted in the state-of-the-art facilities of DNA Labs UAE. The process involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or a cheek swab, which is then analyzed in the laboratory for the presence of specific genetic mutations in the NTF4 gene. Results from this test can help healthcare providers develop a more personalized treatment plan for patients at risk of or diagnosed with open-angle glaucoma, focusing on early intervention and tailored management strategies to slow the progression of the disease.

NTF4 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1F Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the NTF4 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1F Genetic Test to help diagnose and manage glaucoma. This test is designed to analyze the NTF4 gene and identify any mutations or variations that may be present.

Test Details

The NTF4 gene is associated with glaucoma, open angle type 1F. This type of glaucoma is characterized by progressive damage to the optic nerve, resulting in vision loss and potential blindness.

Using NGS (next-generation sequencing) technology, our genetic test can accurately analyze the NTF4 gene and provide valuable information about an individual’s risk for developing glaucoma or passing it on to their offspring.

Cost and Components

The cost of the NTF4 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1F Genetic Test is AED 4400.0. The test requires a blood sample, extracted DNA, or 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.

Test Type and Department

The NTF4 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1F Genetic Test falls under the category of Ophthalmology Disorders. It is conducted by our experienced Ophthalmologist in the Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Prior to undergoing the NTF4 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1F 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 NTF4 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1F.

Importance of Genetic Testing for Glaucoma

Genetic testing can provide valuable information for the diagnosis and management of glaucoma. It can help confirm a diagnosis, assess an individual’s risk, and guide treatment decisions. However, it is important to note that genetic testing for glaucoma is not a routine part of eye exams and should be discussed with a healthcare provider or genetic counselor.

At DNA Labs UAE, we are dedicated to providing accurate and comprehensive genetic testing services. Contact us today to learn more about the NTF4 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1F Genetic Test and how it can benefit you.
