Genetic Testing May Identify New Gene Mutations in EDS: Study

A genetic testing technique called next-generation sequencing (NGS) may help unveil unrecognized disease-causing mutations linked with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) and related disorders, a Polish study suggests. The study, “Next-Generation Sequencing of Connective Tissue Genes in Patients with Classical Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome,” was published in Current Issues…
