The LAMP Human Fructose Intolerance KIT is an in vitro diagnostic KIT for the detection of the main mutation linked to Hereditary fructose intolerance (rs1800546) by Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP). This assay is dedicated to professional use in diagnostic laboratory. The device is not for self-testing.
Hereditary fructose intolerance is an autosomal recessive disorder, caused by a deficiency in the activity of aldolase B, a major actor in the metabolism pathway of fructose. Multiple mutations have been described, of which the A149P polymorphism ( rs1800546 ) is linked to 65% of hereditary fructose intolerance. Clinical symptoms include vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Often patients show a food aversion to fructose rich foods. A strict diet avoiding fructose containing foods is recommended.
