Genetic screening for ADPKD

Mutation testing for PKD1 and PKD2 has been recently approved by the UK Genetic Testing Network (UKGTN) to be offered as part of the portfolio of genetic testing available through its network of NHS accredited labs.

From 1 April 2010, testing will be offered nationally through the Sheffield Diagnostic Genetics Service based at the Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

Further information about the new service including criteria for testing is available through the UKGTN website  and NHS Kidney Care website.
