MolMed complete 100th test

The MolMed Laboratory who provide the gene testing service for HSP Australia-wide report that they have completed their 100th test after just 9 months of operation.

The service was launched in February, 2008 following HSPRF funded research to develop best-practice gene tests for SPG4, 3A and 6.

60% of patients tested positive to SPG4 and a few to SPG3A. However there have been no SPG6 positive tests to date.
