Periodic Paralysis Panel

This product is only meant for customers who already purchased a Dante Genome Test

Pendred syndrome is a genetic disorder that causes early hearing loss in children. It can also affect the thyroid gland and sometimes create balance problems. The syndrome is named after Vaughan Pendred, the physician who first described people with the disorder.
Periodic paralysis panel is used to identify genetic variants associated with periodic paralysis, a group of rare genetic disorders that cause episodes of muscle weakness and paralysis. Periodic paralysis is caused by mutations in genes involved in the function of muscle cells, and this panel tests for genetic variants that are known to affect these processes.
This panel is designed for individuals with a family history of periodic paralysis or individuals with symptoms of the condition, such as muscle weakness and paralysis. Genetic testing can confirm a diagnosis, provide information on disease severity and progression, and inform treatment and management decisions. Testing can also inform family planning decisions and provide reassurance for unaffected family members.

The analysis takes into consideration the mutation of germline DNA, it investigates SNP and Indel mutations up to 150 bp.
