Why Is Genetic Testing Important for Ataxia Research?

Genetic testing plays a pivotal role in Ataxia research. This is due to the ability of genetic testing to pinpoint specific genetic mutations associated with different forms of the condition. By identifying these genetic variations, researchers can begin to research the underlying causes of these conditions. With time, researchers can learn what is causing these types of Ataxia and develop treatments to target the root causes of conditions.  

Genetic testing aids in accurate diagnosis, classification, and prognosis, guiding clinicians in offering personalized care to patients. It also contributes significantly to expanding our knowledge of Ataxia’s complex genetic landscape. This paves the way for targeted therapies and potentially even preventive measures in the future. 

If you want to get involved with Ataxia research and clinical trials, you can learn more about current opportunities on our Participate in Ataxia Research page.

Genetic Testing for SCA27B

Genetic Testing for SCA27B SCA27B, one of the newest identified forms of Hereditary Ataxia, is anticipated to be a highly prevalent type of Ataxia. Currently, there are limited options to receive a CLIA-certified genetic test for SCA27B. This article has information about how to access SCA27B testing in the United Read More…
