Goal and objectives of the project

- Identification of FEVR-associated variants in the coding regions of the NDP, FZD4, LRP5, TSPAN12 and ZNF408 genes in patients diagnosed with FEVR and their family members.
- A dataset of genetic mutations related to FEVR in Vietnamese people.

Main results

Theoretical results:
- Clinical findings of Vietnamese patients diagnosed with FEVR.
- A dataset of genetic mutations of Vietnamese patients with FEVR.
Applied results:
- The results contributes to accurate diagnosis and genetic counseling for families with a history of FEVR


Novelty and actuality and scientific meaningfulness of the results The results contributes to the database of pathogenic/potential pathogenic mutations of FEVR genes in Vietnam and around the world.
