Only genetic testing can confirm if your patient has an IRD
Spark Therapeutics is committed to supporting patients with inherited retinal diseases (IRDs) by expanding access to genetic testing.
The ID YOUR IRD® initiativea provides gene testing for patients whom you suspect may be living with an IRD. The ID YOUR IRD panel tests for mutations in approximately 300b genes that are associated with IRDs. The test results provide genetic information that may empower you and your patients to make more informed decisions and tailor your disease management plans.
What type of patients are appropriate for the ID YOUR IRD gene testing initiative?
- Patients suspected of having an IRD (eg, retinitis pigmentosa, Leber congenital amaurosis, Stargardt disease, etc.)
- Patients who have experienced one or more of the following: nyctalopia, peripheral field loss, central vision loss, deterioration of color vision, photophobia, or any of these symptoms with syndromic findings
Please note: ID YOUR IRD does not currently test for genes related to age-related macular degeneration.
