The objective of this study is to define the clinical phenotype and natural history of sporadic adult-onset degenerative ataxia and to identify putative disease-causing mutations. The primary measure of disease severity was the Scale for the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia (SARA). DNA samples were screened for mutations using a high-coverage ataxia-specific gene panel in combination with next-generation sequencing. The analysis was performed on 249 participants. Our study provides quantitative data on the clinical phenotype and progression of sporadic ataxia with adult onset.
In a small percentage of patients with Friedreich ataxia (FA), the pathogenic mutation is compound heterozygous, consisting of a guanine–adenine–adenine (GAA) trinucleotide repeat expansion in one allele, and a deletion, point mutation, or insertion in the other. In 2 cases of compound heterozygous FA, the GAA expansion was inherited from the mother, and deletions from the father.
Niemann-Pick disease Type C1 (NPC1) is a rare progressive neurodegenerative disorder caused by mutations in the NPC1 gene. The pathological mechanisms, underlying NPC1 are not yet completely understood. Especially the contribution of glial cells and gliosis to the progression of NPC1, are controversially discussed. As an analysis of affected cells is unfeasible in NPC1-patients, we recently developed an in vitro model system, based on cells derived from NPC1-patient specific iPSCs.
Dear Prof. Rolfs, ...
I want to thank you again for your support in our activity in rare disease field in Romania. It was a great meeting at Rare Disease Day symposium in Bucharest on 23th February. Centogene team participation contributed immensely to our event. It's amazing how much value you offered to our specialists looking to learn about rare diseases and new genomic technologies.
