DNA Genetic Tests
Relating to Drug: Abacavir
RT-PCR & SYBR Green based detection method: each sample requires only 2 PCR rxns for detecting of HLA-B*5701 and Internal Control. Analysis is based on Ct values.
- Required only hours from blood sample to results.
- Designed for easy operation & analysis.
- Highly specific in differentiate B*5701 from B*5702, B*5703, B*5704.
- Mix & Match design.
Many studies have demonstrated the strong association of Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA-B*5701) and Abacavir induced hypersensitivity reactions (HSR). Individuals that use DNA tests to determine their HLA genotypes prior to taking these drugs can reduce their risks of developing HSR significantly.
TAG: HLA-B*5701, Abacavir,
