Fanconi Test Results

I finally got Nemo's results back by email.

PROBABLY CLEAR/NORMAL FOR FANCONI SYNDROME

Yeah! That's over now.

Based on the email, it looks like they may have renamed the "indeterminate" result with "equivocal". Here is the description of the result from the email:

"An EQUIVOCAL test result indicates that your basenji’s DNA contained features found in both “normal” and “carrier” Basenjis. So far about 10% of the tested basenjis have given us an EQUIVOCAL test result. At present we cannot predict whether these Basenjis are carriers or normal; however, it is unlikely that they will develop Fanconi syndrome. The safest strategy would be to treat them as “carriers” and only breed them to dogs that test CLEAR/NORMAL FOR FANCONI SYNDROME."

That is great news for Nemo!!!! Now you have no worries about Fanconi….

That is wonderful news!

Congratulations! That is very good news.

Wonderful news, congratulations!

Congrats on the results.. that is EXCELLENT.

And yes they have been calling Indeterminate Equivocal for quite some time now. I believe indeterminate is the lay speak for equivocal, as that is what Zaire and her mom both test as.

Congrats!!!
