    Gene Testing

    After several months of asking, I am finally being tested for the MND genes.

    Knowing the defective gene will help me identify an effective therapy.

    Progress at last from NHS!

    Hi,

    Terry, yes, on the NHS! Everyone in the UK can get the tests starting with c9orf72. A slew of other MND genes are to be announced this year and their respective tests will follow.

    Interestingly, the rabbi in the Brainstorm trial exhibited FTD with motor function deficeits which are markers for c9orf72. I expect to be negative for c9orf72.

    It ain't over till the fat angels sing, Roy. Big Bob's party is still on!

    Hi Caroline,

    Yes, just bloods. For north England, samples are sent to Hallamshire, Sheffield, for analysis. Approx 2 month turnaround.
