Usher Syndrome Can Have Different And Complex Causes

Usher syndrome is related to 3 to 6 percent of all childhood deafness and about 50% of deaf-blindness in adults, representing about half of all people who are both deaf and blind. The syndrome is caused by genetic mutations causing retinitis pigmentosa and congenital deafness.

Get the full picture. We’ve designed the robust and cost-effective Usher Panel to help you understand the cause of hearing deficit and blindness in Usher syndrome. Otogenetics Usher Gene Panel has been used to identify gene mutations and copy number variation (CNV) in the Usher genes. In addition, clinical researchers used Otogenetics Usher Gene Panel Testing to investigate Usher gene mutation frequency in certain population.
