Order Pulmonary Fibrosis – Hermansky-Pudlak Panel (21 Genes) Test
The Pulmonary Fibrosis - Hermansky-Pudlak Panel sequences 20 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. Read more details about this test.
