Pricing Comments

We are happy to accommodate requests for testing single genes in this panel or a subset of these genes. The price will remain the list price. If desired, free reflex testing to remaining genes on panel is available. Alternatively, a single gene or subset of genes can also be ordered via our PGxome Custom Panel tool.

An additional 25% charge will be applied to STAT orders. STAT orders are prioritized throughout the testing process.

For Reflex to PGxome pricing click here.

Turnaround Time

18 days on average for standard orders or 14 days on average for STAT orders.

Once a specimen has started the testing process in our lab, the most accurate prediction of TAT will be displayed in the myPrevent portal as an Estimated Report Date (ERD) range. We calculate the ERD for each specimen as testing progresses; therefore the ERD range may differ from our published average TAT. View more about turnaround times here.

Clinical Features and Genetics

Clinical Features

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) represents a group of hereditary retinal dystrophies with a worldwide prevalence of ~1 in 4000 (Booij 2005). RP is clinically characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination, nyctalopia (night blindness), followed by progressive degeneration of the photoreceptors, which eventually leads to blindness (van Soest et al. 1999).


Nonsyndromic and syndromic RP is remarkably heterogeneous both clinically and genetically and exhibits autosomal dominant (AD, 15%-25% of the cases), autosomal recessive (AR, 5%-20% of the cases) or X-linked (XL, 5%-15% of the cases) inheritance (Fahim et al. 2013). Unknown, simplex cases (single occurrence in a family) account for 40%-50% of cases and rarely digenic inheritance has been reported (Fahim et al. 2013). To date, over 80 genes have been linked to RP (RetNet; Daiger et al. 2007; Daiger et al. 2013; Audo et al. 2012; Neveling et al. 2012; Fu et al. 2013; Zhao et al. 2015;; Human Gene Mutation Database), but likely more RP genes remain to be discovered (Daiger et al. 2010; Daiger et al. 2013; Perez-Carro et al. 2016).

The most common genes involved in AD RP are RHO (26-28% of RP cases), PRPF31/RP11 (5-8%), PRPH2/RDS (4-8%), RP1 (6%), IMPDH1 (1-3%), KLHL7 (0.5-1.5%), NR2E3 (0.5-1.5%), PRPF3/RP18 (1%), PRPF8/RP13 (3%), CRX (1%) and TOPORS (1%) (Fahim et al. 2013; Daiger et al. 2010; Sullivan et al. 2013).See individual gene test descriptions for more information on molecular biology of gene products.

Clinical Sensitivity - Sequencing with CNV PGxome

It is now possible to detect disease-causing pathogenic variants in about 56% of patients with AD RP (Daiger et al. 2010).

Genomic rearrangements in PRPF31 (causative for AD RP) are now known to account for 2.5% of AD RP (Sullivan et al. 2006). Copy number variants have also been reported in BEST1, CRB1, CRX, EYS, NR2E3, PDE6B, PRPF31, PRPH2, RHO and RPE65 (Human Gene Mutation Database).

Testing Strategy

This test is performed using Next-Gen sequencing with additional Sanger sequencing as necessary.

This panel typically provides 99.9% coverage of all coding exons of the genes plus 10 bases of flanking noncoding DNA in all available transcripts along with other non-coding regions in which pathogenic variants have been identified at PreventionGenetics or reported elsewhere. We define coverage as ≥20X NGS reads or Sanger sequencing.

Since this test is performed using exome capture probes, a reflex to any of our exome based tests is available (PGxome, PGxome Custom Panels).

Indications for Test

All patients with symptoms suggestive of Retinitis pigmentosa are candidates.
