Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia Report


Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia

Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare condition characterised by chronic respiratory tract infections, abnormal positioning of internal organs and infertility. The clinical picture is determined by abnormalities in cilia and flagella, which are located in the lining of the airways, the reproductive system and other organs and tissues. Primary ciliary dyskinesia is caused by mutations in several genes; mutations in the DNAI1 and DNAH5 genes account for approximately 30 per cent of all cases.

50 genes analyzed

It is recommended if:

This test may be indicated for those with a family history of Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia. Patients with congestion, situs inversus and frequent sinus and ear infections may also benefit. Genetic testing can help in diagnosis and in providing information on risks for other family members.

List of main conditions:

  • Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 1, with or without situs inversus
  • Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 2
  • Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 9, with or without situs inversus
  • Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 36, X-linked
  • Available in less than 24 hours
  • Based on Whole Genome Sequencing
  • Investigates SNP and Indel mutations up to 150 bp


How will my data be used?

Your data is yours. Which is why we have developed proprietary software linked to a dedicated platform, the Genome Manager, to provide you with unique access to your data whenever you want, wherever you are.

How can my doctor use the results?

You will be provided with a digital version of the raw data and reports. Thanks to these in-depth tools, you will be able to share your preferred information with your geneticist and/or doctor to indicate and plan the healthiest course for you. 

How will I receive my reports?

The first thing to do when you receive your kit is to register it on your Genome Manager account. Dante's proprietary platform will keep you up-to-date on all stages of your genetic journey, providing you with the real-time status of your sample and where you can download your free report and raw data* at any time.

*Raw data will be available free of charge for the first 30 days after release.

How can I add other reports to my account?

At any time, you can log into your Genome Manager account and visit the Shop section. Here you will find a catalog with more than 150 additional reports dedicated to all areas of health. In addition, by subscribing to our newsletter you can always see new reports and panel updates.
