The VAPB Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis type 8 Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure designed to identify mutations in the VAPB gene, which have been associated with a rare form of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as ALS type 8. This condition is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, leading to muscle weakness and, eventually, severe physical disability.

The test is conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic testing and analysis. By examining a patient’s DNA sample, usually obtained through a blood draw, the test can pinpoint specific genetic alterations in the VAPB gene that are indicative of ALS type 8. This information is crucial for early diagnosis, allowing for better management of the condition and counseling for affected individuals and their families.

The cost of the VAPB Gene Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis type 8 Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This price includes the full analysis and a comprehensive report that details the findings. Given the complexity of genetic testing and the specialized technology required, the cost reflects the extensive resources involved in providing accurate and reliable results.

Pre Test Information

Prior to undergoing the VAPB Gene Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 8 NGS Genetic DNA 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 ALS type 8.

Test Details

The VAPB gene is associated with a form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) known as ALS type 8. This condition is characterized by muscle weakness and wasting in the hands and feet, as well as difficulties with speaking and swallowing.

NGS genetic testing is used to analyze the DNA sequence of the VAPB gene and identify any mutations or abnormalities that may be present. If a mutation is detected, it can help confirm a diagnosis of ALS type 8 and guide the treatment and management of the disease.

Furthermore, genetic testing can be beneficial for family members who may be at risk of inheriting the mutation. By undergoing genetic testing, they can determine their own risk and take appropriate measures.
