Hello,

I need your help.

My son got DNA test. But specialists can test only deletion and dublication. He got negative result. It took nearly two months to get this result (they did not test case by case but waited to test group by group to save cost).

We need further test for point mutation. But they said it would take 2 months more.

We concern a lot about the acuracy of the test since gene test for Duchenne is not popular in my country - Viet Nam.

So, we want to know there is anyway to test like sending blood sample overseas or where the nearest and reliable Center is for Duchenne ?

Much thanks.

Trinh

Oh Trinh, how frustrating for you. I am sorry. I'm hoping one of the professionals on this site can help you out with the information you need or has a connection.

Dear Andrea,

Yes, my son is getting Prenisolone everyday since doctors said he got typical symptom of Duchenne, but his DNA test is not confirmed yet.

If any reliable connection in Singapore or Thailand, it is helpful for us.

So anxious time !

I'm so sorry.  My son also has a duplication that was diagnosed, so that part is at least possible.  I'm not sure of any testing facilities outside of the U.S.  There has to be something, so we'll keep looking.
