Optic Atrophy Panel – New

Optic atrophy refers to the end stage of the optic nerve damage caused by the death of retinal ganglion cells. Since the optic nerve transmits retinal information to the brain, optic atrophy is associated with vision loss. This disease can arise due to damage within the eye or the optic nerve or it can be congenital, as is the case of autosomal dominant optic atrophy, among others. Optic atrophy can follow an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive or X-linked inheritance pattern.

The DBGen Optic Atrophy Panel studies 23 genes and 5 non coding regions associated with optic atrophy.
