DIAGNOSIS OF GENETIC DISORDERS

 

 

The use of new diagnostic techniques has allowed individuals to discover whether they or their offspring are at risk of suffering from specific inherited diseases. DNA analysis using PCR has been used for the identification of carriers of hereditary disorders, for prenatal diagnosis of deleterious genetic conditions and for the early diagnosis of these disorders before the manifestations of any symptoms. Table 25.7 shows some examples of genetic human disorders that are currently identified by PCR.
