Brief Program Overview

No-cost genetic testing is being offered through a program sponsored by Inozyme Pharma. The genetic testing is for Ectonucleotide Pyrophosphatase/Phosphodiesterase 1 (ENPP1) Deficiency and ATP binding cassette subfamily C member 6 (ABCC6) Deficiency. ENPP1 Deficiency causes Generalized Arterial Calcification of Infancy (GACI) Type 1 in infants, and Autosomal Recessive Hypophosphatemic Rickets, type 2 (ARHR2) post infancy. ABCC6 Deficiency causes GACI type 2 in infancy.

Please include the following for prenatal test requests. Please refer to Page 5 of the TRF for specimen requirements and prenatal testing guidelines.

  1. Signed Prenatal HCP statement
  2. Fetal specimen
  3. At least one parental specimen
  4. Positive control specimen(s) if ordering targeted prenatal testing (Test Code #990). Positive control specimens should be collected from the family member(s) who have known ENPP1 and/or ABCC6 variants. PreventionGenetics tests these positive control specimens to ensure that the familial variants can be detected by sequence technology used in the lab. There will be no reports for positive control specimens.

For specimens of any type collected in the state of New York

Samples:

  • For blood or saliva samples: Blood samples are the preferred sample type, when possible. A sample collection kit can be requested from PreventionGenetics, which contains the blood or saliva collection tube, TRF, ICF, and a shipping label. Alternatively, for blood samples, the ordering physician can collect 3-5 mls of whole blood in an EDTA (lavender; K2EDTA or K3EDTA) or ACD (yellow) top tube available at his or her location. For saliva samples, Isohelix™ or GeneFiX™ Saliva Collection kits may also be used for testing according to manufacturer instructions. If using blood or saliva tubes from the clinic site, the HCP will download the TRF and ICF. A pre-paid shipping label will need to be requested from PreventionGenetics (see instructions above).
  • For prenatal specimens: The HCP or clinic site will need to provide their own containers for cell cultures and/or DNA samples. These types of samples can be sent in a PreventionGenetics kit box or their own boxes provided they follow the instructions for packaging and shipping the samples. In this scenario, providers can request a pre-paid shipping label from PreventionGenetics.

Turnaround Time: From the time the sample is received at PreventionGenetics with all the completed and appropriate paperwork, the anticipated time it will take for the results to be reported to the ordering HCP is 14 calendar days, with the exception of targeted prenatal testing, which has a turnaround time of 8-10 days.
