DNA Genetic Tests
Relating to Drug:
Carbamazepine & Phenytoin
RT-PCR & SYBR Green based detection method: each sample requires only 2 PCR rxns for detecting of HLA-B*1502 and Internal Control. Analysis is based on Ct values. A complete kit version has IVD approval from Department of Health, Taiwan.
- Required only hours from blood sample to results.
- Designed for easy operation & analysis.
- Validated accuracy with 4500+ patients samples* & DNA sequencing.
- Protected by US, Europe & world wide patents.
- Mix & Match design.
Many studies have demonstrated the strong association of Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA-B*1502) and carbamazepine, phenytoin, & oxcarbazepine induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). Individuals that use DNA tests to determine their HLA genotypes prior to taking these drugs can reduce their risks of developing SJS/TEN by as high as 1300 times.
Our HLA-B*1502 detection test is unable to distinguish the following rare allele types:
HLA-B*1513, 1531, 1555, 1588, 1589, 1820, 9512, 9521, 9544, 9570
TAG: HLA-B*1502, Carbamazepine, phenytoin, SJS, TEN,
