Clinical Information
Test purpose: Help
Diagnosis; Mutation Confirmation; Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis; Pre-symptomatic
Target population: Help
Mainly patients wiht clinical suspicious of Polycystic Kidney Disease where it is needed a genetic confirmation (complete study) or in cases where the analysis is needed to detect the presence of a previously identified mutation in a family (direct study).
Variant Interpretation:
What is the protocol for interpreting a variation as a VUS? Help
Following ACMG variants classification guidelines (2016) with minor modifications, we also analyze affected tissue, perform RNA and functional analysisi, validate if the variant co-segregate with the phenotype or is de novo, analyze the variant using different in sillico programs, etc.

Are family members with defined clinical status recruited to assess significance of VUS without charge? Help

Will the lab re-contact the ordering physician if variant interpretation changes? Help

Technical Information
Test Confirmation: Help
Mutation is detected DNA level by NGS and validated by an independent technique (Sanger). Splicing mutations that are not previously described are also validated at RNA levels if possible. Studies from patients with mosaicism two independent affected tissues from the same patient are analyzed to detect both first and second … View more
