Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Report


Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL) are a group of rare disorders affecting the nervous system and characterised by lysosomal accumulation. Depending on the age of onset, we can differentiate them into infantile, juvenile and adult-onset NCL. Symptomatology is variable and depends on which gene is involved. The most common symptoms include dementia, epilepsy, loss of vision, retardation and loss of developmental abilities. Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis is a progressive disease for which there is currently no cure; treatment is based on symptom management and assistance for those affected.

How will my data be used?

Your data is yours. Which is why we have developed proprietary software linked to a dedicated platform, the Genome Manager, to provide you with unique access to your data whenever you want, wherever you are.

How can my doctor use the results?

You will be provided with a digital version of the raw data and reports. Thanks to these in-depth tools, you will be able to share your preferred information with your geneticist and/or doctor to indicate and plan the healthiest course for you. 

How will I receive my reports?

The first thing to do when you receive your kit is to register it on your Genome Manager account. Dante's proprietary platform will keep you up-to-date on all stages of your genetic journey, providing you with the real-time status of your sample and where you can download your free report and raw data* at any time.

*Raw data will be available free of charge for the first 30 days after release.

How can I add other reports to my account?

At any time, you can log into your Genome Manager account and visit the Shop section. Here you will find a catalog with more than 150 additional reports dedicated to all areas of health. In addition, by subscribing to our newsletter you can always see new reports and panel updates.
