Cystic Fibrosis Common Mutations

What is this test?

Cystic fibrosis (CF), in the classic form, is a severe autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a varied degree of chronic obstructive lung disease and pancreatic enzyme insufficiency. The incidence of CF varies markedly among different populations, as does the mutation detection rate for the mutation screening assay. To date, over 1,500 mutations have been described within the CF gene, named cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). The most common mutation, deltaF508, accounts for approximately 67% of the mutations worldwide and approximately. Most of the remaining mutations are rather rare, although some show a relatively higher prevalence in certain ethnic groups or in some atypical presentations of CF such as congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD).
