Method:

Set Up Days:

TAT (Days):
60 days
Information:
Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is a hereditary dyslipidaemia characterised by a permanent and isolated elevation in circulating low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels. FH is often transmitted as a codominant trait and two clinical forms have been described. The heterozygous form is often clinically silent and may be diagnosed at any age following a complete lipid analysis (carried out after a period of fasting of over 12 hours) and diagnostic scores based on familial history (over three or more generations) or a personal history of coronary artery disease, extravascular deposits and isolated hypercholesterolaemia that does not respond to a lipid-controlled diet. The severe homozygous form is very rare with onset in the first two years of life and is characterised by extravascular cholesterol deposits (cutaneous or tendon xanthomas), LDL levels and an arteriopathy (aortic stenosis, coronary artery disease) manifesting before 10 years of age. Recessively inherited hypercholesterolaemia (less than 20 cases reported so far) is characterised by xanthomas and/or atherosclerosis in children with severe hypercholesterolaemia born to parents with normal lipid levels. For the dominant forms, mutations have been identified in the following genes: LDLR (responsible for between 2/3 and 3/4 of dominantly inherited cases), APOB and PCSK9. For the recessive forms, causative mutations have been identified in the LDLRAP1 and ABCG5/ABCG8 genes. Due to the high risk of cardiovascular disease, the diagnosis of HF in an individual should lead to investigation and management of the whole family.

MOLECULAR STUDY BRANCHIOOTIRENAL SYNDROME - BOR (EYA1) MLPA, WHOLE BLOOD

New Test in CIC Catalog

Test Code: 3943

Sample:
Whole blood - EDTA (5 ml)
Conservation:
Refrigerated
Method:
Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification-MLPA
Set Up Days:
Daily
TAT (Days):
20 days
Information:
Branchiootorenal (BOR) syndrome is characterized by branchial arch anomalies (branchial clefts, fistulae, cysts), hearing impairment (malformations of the auricle with pre-auricular pits, conductive or sensorineural hearing impairment), and renal malformations (urinary tree malformation, renal hypoplasia or agenesis, renal dysplasia, renal cysts). Prevalence is 1/40,000. Renal involvement can lead to chronic renal insufficiency. The expression of the disease varies widely from one family to another and among individuals of the same family. Some families do not present with renal abnormalities or a urinary tree malformation. BOR syndrome is transmitted in an autosomal dominant manner. The causative gene, EYA1, is located on the long arm of chromosome 8. Point mutations and deletions in EYA1 have been identified in approximately 40% of affected individuals. Mutations have also been identified in the SIX1 and SIX5 genes, the products of which interact with EYA1 to form transcription factor complexes. Prenatal testing can be proposed to families in which the disease-causing mutation has been identified, but genetic counseling is difficult because of the clinical heterogeneity between individuals. Management of affected patients includes excision of branchial fistulae or cysts, hearing aids and education programs appropriate for the hearing impaired, and follow-up by a nephrologist. Dialysis or renal transplantation may be required.
