The UNC119 gene cone-rod dystrophy genetic test is a specialized diagnostic procedure designed to identify mutations in the UNC119 gene, which are linked to cone-rod dystrophy, a group of inherited eye disorders. These disorders primarily affect the cone and rod cells in the retina, leading to a progressive loss of vision. Symptoms often include decreased visual acuity, loss of color vision, and night blindness, eventually progressing to legal blindness in many cases.

The test is particularly valuable for individuals with a family history of cone-rod dystrophy or for those exhibiting symptoms, as it can provide a definitive diagnosis and help in managing the condition more effectively. Additionally, it can be essential for family planning purposes, offering at-risk couples the information needed to make informed decisions about having children.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a facility renowned for its state-of-the-art genetic testing services, the UNC119 gene cone-rod dystrophy genetic test is performed with high accuracy and reliability. The cost of the test is set at 4400 AED, reflecting the sophisticated technology and expertise required to identify mutations in the UNC119 gene accurately. Upon completion, the results can offer critical insights into treatment options and potential interventions, although it’s important to note that currently, there is no cure for cone-rod dystrophy, and treatments mainly focus on managing symptoms and slowing progression.

UNC119 Gene Cone-rod dystrophy Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the UNC119 Gene Cone-rod dystrophy Genetic Test to diagnose cone-rod dystrophy, a rare genetic disorder that affects the retina of the eye. This test analyzes the UNC119 gene, which is crucial for the normal functioning of the retina.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Cone-rod dystrophy is a progressive disorder that typically begins in childhood or adolescence. Common symptoms include difficulty seeing in bright light, loss of color vision, and difficulty seeing at night. To diagnose cone-rod dystrophy, our team of ophthalmologists will conduct a thorough examination and collect a clinical history of the patient.

Test Details

The UNC119 gene cone-rod dystrophy NGS genetic test utilizes next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology. It involves analyzing a sample of blood or extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card. The test identifies any changes or mutations in the UNC119 gene associated with cone-rod dystrophy. The results of this test are typically delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Test Cost

The cost of the UNC119 Gene Cone-rod dystrophy Genetic Test is AED 4400.0.

Test Department and Doctor

This genetic test is conducted in our Genetics department and is overseen by our experienced ophthalmologists.

Pre-Test Information

Prior to the test, a genetic counseling session is recommended. This session helps gather a complete clinical history of the patient and draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by the UNC119 Gene Cone-rod dystrophy NGS Genetic DNA Test gene UNC119.

Treatment and Management

Once the UNC119 gene cone-rod dystrophy NGS genetic test confirms the diagnosis, our team of doctors can provide appropriate treatment and management strategies. Treatment options may include vision aids, low vision rehabilitation, and gene therapy.

Test Details

UNC119 gene cone-rod dystrophy NGS genetic test is a type of genetic test that is used to diagnose cone-rod dystrophy, a rare genetic disorder that affects the retina of the eye. The test analyzes the UNC119 gene, which provides instructions for making a protein that is essential for the normal functioning of the retina.

Cone-rod dystrophy is a progressive disorder that affects the cone cells and rod cells in the retina, leading to a loss of vision. The symptoms of the disorder usually begin in childhood or adolescence and include difficulty seeing in bright light, loss of color vision, and difficulty seeing at night.

The UNC119 gene cone-rod dystrophy NGS genetic test is a next-generation sequencing (NGS) test that can identify changes or mutations in the UNC119 gene that are associated with cone-rod dystrophy. The test involves analyzing a sample of DNA from the patient’s blood or saliva to identify any genetic changes that may be causing the disorder.

The results of the UNC119 gene cone-rod dystrophy NGS genetic test can help doctors diagnose the disorder and provide appropriate treatment and management strategies. Treatment options for cone-rod dystrophy may include vision aids, low vision rehabilitation, and gene therapy.
