New Products: GeneDx's Familial Cerebral Cavernous Malformations Test; CTGT's Osteogenesis Imperfecta Test | GenomeWeb

GeneDx has introduced sequencing and array-based testing for mutations in KRIT1, CCM2, and PDCD10, three genes associated with cerebral cavernous malformations.

CCMs are central nervous system vascular lesions formed by a cluster of grossly dilated blood vessels. Features and symptoms can include seizures, epilepsy, focal neurological deficits, chronic headaches, stroke, and cerebral hemorrhage
