Iranian Genetic Testing Registry for Primary Immunodeficiencies
Genetic testing is a means of determining whether or not one is carrying a genetic mutation which has the potential to cause a medical condition. Nowadays genetic information is needed to diagnose, treat, and generally manage different diseases. So genetic testing of immunodeficiency (PID) disorders is also of importance, especially for decisive diagnosis as well as bone marrow transplantation. Registration of information based on genetics has potential benefits for families possessing individuals with that disease for both present and future. This registry aims to collect genetics information about PID patients and their families' members.
All of the Iranian patients suspected to PID who referred to immunology, asthma and allergy research institute (IAARI) between 2007 and 2016 have been investigated regarding to PID. After taking informed consent, screening tests for PID were performed completely. To begin, PCR for exons and exon-intron boundaries was performed. Then sequencing of PCR products was done to show whether there is any mutation in gene of interest. Genetics data of individuals after definite diagnosis were enrolled in the genetic registry.
Genetic testing of 15 different PID diseases has been performed for more than 450 cases and collected in this registry. These 258 cases and their families had decisive mutation and genetic diagnosis. The rate of diseases were: Chronic Granulomatous Disease 22.17%, Severe Combined Immunodeficiency 21.33%, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome 10.46%, Congenital Neutropenia 8.36%, Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency 7.53%, Griscelli 5.85%,  Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis 5.23%, Angioedema 5.23%, Cystic Fibrosis 3.76%, Hyper IgE 2.92%, Hyper IgM 2.92%, X-linked Agammaglobulinemia 2.72%, Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 0.83%, Ataxia-telangiectasia 0.41% and WHIM Syndrome 0.20%. This registry can be valuable for making aware of patients including decisive diagnosis, genetic counseling, carrier detection and prenatal diagnosis. Also this is a bank of data for some future researches. According to this registry, CGD and SCID are the most common PID in Iran.
