Order Basic Fibrosis Panel (12 Genes) Test
The Basic Fibrosis Panel sequences 12 genes associated with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition that develops when the lung tissue becomes thickened and scarred over time. Available data suggest that 10–15% of IPF cases are considered to be familial, suggesting a genetic predisposition. Hereditary lung diseases identified by variants in genes in this panel include familial pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary alveolar proteinosis, and surfactant metabolism deficiency.
