Genomic Unity® DMD Analysis
Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the most common and severe form of muscular dystrophy, is caused by variants in the DMD gene that result in deficiency of the dystrophin protein.
Becker muscular dystrophy, which is less severe, is also caused by variants in the DMD gene that reduce but do not eliminate dystrophin production.
Order this test when the patient presents with symptoms of muscle weakness consistent with Duchenne muscular dystrophy or Becker muscular dystrophy and you'd like the option to reflex up to Genomic Unity® Exome Plus Analysis.
