Most UK genetics centres offering predictive testing for hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) use an extended counselling protocol originally developed for Huntington's disease. Shortened counselling may be more appropriate in the context of treatable genetic conditions such as...
Triple A syndrome (AAAS, OMIM#231550) is an autosomal recessive condition characterized by adrenal insufficiency, achalasia, alacrima, neurodegeneration and autonomic dysfunction. Mutations in the AAAS gene on chromosome 12q13 have been reported in several subjects with AAAS. Over the last 5...
Patients with Usher syndrome type II (USH2) show moderate-to-severe hearing loss (HL), retinitis pigmentosa and normal vestibular function. The progression of HL remains controversial. To evaluate whether a phenotype–genotype correlation exists regarding the issue of progression of HL, only...
Despite attention to psychological issues during genetic counselling and testing for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer risk, limited information is available on cancer-specific distress among African American women being targeted for participation in counselling and testing. Therefore, the...
