Test Background The primary hyperoxalurias (PH) are a group of inherited disorders of endogenous oxalate overproduction. Mutations in the AGXT, GRHPR and HOGA1 genes lead to Primary Hyperoxaluria types 1, 2 and 3 respectively. We offer whole gene sequencing of these genes.
Clinical Indications Primary hyperoxaluria is characterised by increased urine oxalate, nephrocalcinosis and/or recurrent calcium oxalate renal stones, with renal failure in the most severe cases.
Sample Required 5 ml whole blood EDTA (purple top) or locally extracted DNA
20 mg of well dissected chorionic villus sample
Transport/Storage Ship at ambient temperature.
Step one test (screening for commonest mutations) 10 days
Whole gene sequencing 28 days
