Clinical validity


The ability of this particular gene test to accurately and reliably identify or predict the intermediate or final outcomes of the disease is fairly high. Number of mutation were up to now reported as causing mutation for this disease, and more than dozen of them were reported as missense/nonsense type, that can be identified with more than 99,9% specificity using standard sequencing at Centogene. We are also offering deletion/duplication analysis for this gene, designed at Centogene to specially meets the patient`s needs. Gene test for this gene could support precise diagnosis of the disease in majority of affected patients with family history, as well as number of sporadic patients with particular symptomatology.
