The PRNP Gene Fatal Familial Insomnia Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, aimed at detecting mutations in the PRNP gene that are associated with Fatal Familial Insomnia (FFI). FFI is a rare genetic disorder characterized by an inability to sleep that may lead to significant physical and mental health issues, ultimately proving fatal. The condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, meaning a mutation in just one copy of the gene is sufficient to cause the disorder.

This test involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or a cheek swab, and analyzing it for specific genetic mutations in the PRNP gene known to cause FFI. Identifying these mutations can confirm a diagnosis of FFI, which is crucial for affected individuals and their families to understand the nature of the illness, its progression, and to make informed decisions regarding management and genetic counseling.

The cost of the PRNP Gene Fatal Familial Insomnia Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. Given the complexity of the test and the need for specialized equipment and expertise to interpret the results accurately, the cost reflects the comprehensive service provided, including pre-test counseling, the testing procedure itself, and post-test counseling to discuss the results.

Test Details:

Fatal familial insomnia (FFI) is a rare genetic disorder that affects the sleep-wake cycle. It is caused by a mutation in the PRNP gene, which codes for a protein called prion. This mutation leads to the formation of abnormal prion proteins in the brain, which gradually destroy the brain tissue and lead to the symptoms of FFI.

NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) is a genetic test that can detect mutations in the PRNP gene. It is a highly sensitive and accurate method that can identify even small changes in the DNA sequence. NGS can be used to diagnose FFI in individuals who have symptoms of the disease or who have a family history of FFI. NGS can also be used for carrier testing in individuals who have a family history of FFI but do not have symptoms of the disease. Carrier testing can help identify individuals who have a mutation in the PRNP gene and are at risk of passing the mutation on to their children.

Overall, NGS genetic testing for the PRNP gene can help diagnose FFI and identify individuals who are at risk of developing the disease or passing it on to their children. This information can be used for genetic counseling and to help individuals make informed decisions about their health.
