The Jain Foundation is committed to improving this LGMD diagnosis tool to help patients get a complete and accurate genetic diagnosis. We encourage you to forward a copy of each summary report to us for review because this will help us in the following ways:

  • It will help us determine the frequency at which the different LGMDs are being predicted.
  • Funds for mutational analysis of LGMD2B and 2I are currently provided for patients in the US. In addition, we are exploring offering next generation sequencing for all the LGMD genes, but need to better understand what is needed.
  • Sending us the summary report along with information about the ultimate genetic diagnosis will help us improve the algorithm used in the tool.
  • It will help us keep track of the use of the tool.
