The PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic tool used to identify mutations in the PRX gene, which are associated with Dejerine-Sottas Disease (DSD), also known as Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy Type III. DSD is a rare, inherited neurological disorder characterized by progressive muscle weakness and sensory loss, primarily affecting the peripheral nervous system. Early detection through genetic testing can be crucial for managing symptoms, planning treatment strategies, and providing genetic counseling for affected families.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, this genetic test offers a comprehensive analysis of the PRX gene to detect mutations that may lead to the development of Dejerine-Sottas Disease. The process involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or a cheek swab, which is then analyzed using advanced genetic sequencing technologies to identify any genetic abnormalities.

The cost of the PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test is 4400 AED. While the price may seem high, the value of the information gained can be significant for patients and their families, providing insights into the genetic basis of the condition, enabling early intervention, and facilitating informed decisions about care and management. It is advisable for individuals considering this test to consult with a healthcare professional or a genetic counselor to understand the implications of the results and the next steps in the context of their personal and family health history.

PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test to help diagnose and understand this rare genetic disorder. This test is designed to identify mutations in the PRX gene, which is responsible for the development and maintenance of peripheral nerves. By analyzing the DNA sample using NGS technology, we can provide valuable information about the presence of Dejerine-Sottas Disease (DSD) and its potential impact on the patient and their family.

Test Components and Price

The PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test is priced at 4400.0 AED. The test requires a sample of either blood, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card.

Report Delivery and Method

Once the sample is collected, the report will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks. The analysis is performed using NGS technology, which allows for the rapid sequencing of large amounts of DNA, ensuring accurate and comprehensive results.

Test Type and Department

The PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test falls under the category of Neurological Disorders. Our expert neurologists in the Genetics department will oversee the entire testing process.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is undergoing the PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease NGS Genetic DNA Test. Additionally, a genetic counseling session will be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease. This information helps in better understanding the genetic factors and potential risks associated with the condition.

About Dejerine-Sottas Disease

Dejerine-Sottas Disease (DSD) is a rare genetic disorder that affects the peripheral nerves, leading to muscle weakness and sensory loss. The condition is caused by mutations in the PRX gene, which plays a crucial role in the development and maintenance of peripheral nerves.

The Power of NGS Technology

NGS technology is a cutting-edge method used for genetic testing. It enables the rapid sequencing of large amounts of DNA, making it possible to detect even rare mutations in the PRX gene. By utilizing NGS, we can accurately identify any mutations that may be causing DSD.

How the Test Works

The PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease NGS Genetic Test involves collecting a sample of DNA, typically from blood or saliva. This sample is then sequenced using NGS technology to analyze the PRX gene. The resulting data is thoroughly analyzed to identify any mutations that may be present and potentially causing DSD.

Benefits of Genetic Testing

Genetic testing can provide valuable information for individuals with symptoms of DSD and their family members who may be at risk. A positive genetic test result can confirm a diagnosis of DSD, while a negative result can help rule out the condition or suggest alternative diagnoses. Additionally, genetic testing can offer insights into the likelihood of passing the condition on to future generations.

Important Considerations

It is essential to note that genetic testing is not a substitute for clinical evaluation and diagnosis by a healthcare professional. Individuals experiencing symptoms of DSD should seek medical evaluation and genetic counseling to determine if genetic testing is appropriate for them.

By offering the PRX Gene Dejerine-Sottas Disease Genetic Test, DNA Labs UAE aims to provide accurate and comprehensive genetic testing services to help diagnose and manage this rare genetic disorder. Our team of expert neurologists and geneticists are dedicated to delivering reliable results and supporting patients throughout their genetic testing journey.

Test Details

Dejerine-Sottas disease (DSD) is a rare genetic disorder that affects the peripheral nerves, causing muscle weakness and sensory loss. It is caused by mutations in the PRX gene, which codes for a protein involved in the development and maintenance of peripheral nerves.

NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing is a powerful tool for identifying mutations in the PRX gene and diagnosing DSD. NGS allows for the rapid sequencing of large amounts of DNA, making it possible to detect even rare mutations in the PRX gene.

The PRX gene Dejerine-Sottas disease NGS genetic test involves collecting a sample of DNA, typically from a blood or saliva sample, and sequencing the PRX gene using NGS technology. The resulting data is analyzed to identify any mutations in the PRX gene that may be causing DSD.

Genetic testing can be helpful for individuals with symptoms of DSD, as well as their family members who may be at risk for the condition. A positive genetic test result can confirm a diagnosis of DSD, while a negative result can rule out the condition or suggest alternative diagnoses. Genetic testing can also provide information about the likelihood of passing the condition on to future generations.

It is important to note that genetic testing is not a substitute for clinical evaluation and diagnosis by a healthcare professional. Individuals with symptoms of DSD should seek medical evaluation and genetic counseling to determine if genetic testing is appropriate for them.
