In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers from the United States and Europe discovered genetic mutations associated with long QT syndrome (LQTS), a genetic abnormality in the heart's electrical system, in a small number of intrauterine fetal deaths, according to a study in the April 10 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers conducted a molecular genetic evaluation (referred to as a postmortem cardiac channel molecular autopsy) in 91 cases of unexplained fetal...

Genetic testing for a certain mutation in pediatric patients is valuable in determining a cause for unexplained hearing loss, according to a study in the November 2012 issue of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. The study's authors state that testing for some of the most common mutations that cause sensorineural hearing loss in a targeted way, rather than through generalized screening of hearing loss patients, yields the best results. University of Miami NIH-funded researchers...

Cystic fibrosis, also called mucoviscidosis, is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder of the viscous secretions in the body. In turn, it effects the lungs, pancreas, liver, and intestines, as well as all other exocrine glands in the body. The most common genetic mutation that causes CF is a deletion of three nucleotides that results in a loss of phenylalanine, an amino acid at the 508th position on the protein. It should be noted, however, that there are over a thousand other mutations that...
