Spino Cerebral Ataxia SCA – Single Form Test

750 د.إ

-25%

Spino Cerebral Ataxia (SCA) is a genetic condition characterized by progressive problems with movement, coordination, and balance due to the degeneration of the spinal cord and cerebellum. To accurately diagnose specific types of SCA, DNA testing is vital. The “Single Form Test” is a focused genetic test designed to identify mutations in a single, specific gene known to cause Spino Cerebral Ataxia. This test is crucial for individuals with a family history of SCA or those showing symptoms, as it aids in determining the exact subtype of the disorder, which is essential for understanding the prognosis and exploring treatment options.

DNA Labs UAE offers this specialized Single Form Test for SCA, providing a reliable and efficient means to diagnose this condition. The test cost is set at 750 AED, making it accessible to those who need it. Conducted in a state-of-the-art laboratory with cutting-edge technology, DNA Labs UAE ensures accurate and timely results, empowering patients and their families with crucial information for managing Spino Cerebral Ataxia effectively.

Test Details

Spino Cerebellar Ataxia (SCA) is a group of genetic disorders characterized by progressive degeneration of the cerebellum and spinal cord. There are several different forms of SCA, each caused by a mutation in a specific gene. However, you specifically mentioned the single form of SCA. It is unclear what you mean by “single form,” as there are multiple subtypes of SCA caused by different gene mutations. Some common subtypes include SCA1, SCA2, SCA3, and SCA6.

Each subtype of SCA has its own unique clinical features, age of onset, and disease progression. However, they all share common symptoms such as progressive ataxia (lack of muscle coordination), balance problems, slurred speech, and difficulty with fine motor skills.

The genetic mutations that cause SCA result in the production of abnormal proteins, which accumulate in certain brain regions and lead to neuronal dysfunction and death. The exact mechanisms of how these mutations cause the specific symptoms and degeneration seen in SCA are still being investigated.

There is currently no cure for SCA, and treatment primarily focuses on managing symptoms and improving quality of life. This may include physical therapy, speech therapy, assistive devices, and medications to control symptoms such as tremors or muscle stiffness.

It is important for individuals with SCA to receive regular medical care and genetic counseling to understand the progression of the disease and its impact on their lives and family members.
