The Dysautonomia Foundation supports research studies into FD and the FD gene.

 

Carrier testing is available for the two most common mutations. All patients have one or two copies of a single splicing mutation; over 99% of cases of FD in the Ashkenazi Jewish (AJ) population have two copies of this splicing mutation.

 

A second mutation paired with the AJ splicing mutation accounts for all other cases in the AJ population. A third mutation from a non-Jewish parent, again paired with the AJ splicing mutation, is responsible for a single case of FD.
