Support for 100,000 Genomes Results

Just wondering if anyone else out there is waiting for your 100,000 Genome results and if we can start a support thread?

I am slightly worried about the results - especially the extra findings that we did elect to receive. Have NC for this as many of our family don't know that we are enrolled. Please post if you are waiting - it would be great to have some hand holding and support as our results come in through the months.

Hello, I'm interested in this. Much son has a chronic condition and would like to find out why/what's in store for the future. How did you enroll?

Hi sorry to hear about your son. Im not sure if it is still open for enrolment although it looks like it is from their website. You have to be in England and have a referral from Geneticist or similar. We were referred by a Geneticist.

Here is the page that has a link to see if you might qualify - if you think you do then your GP or geneticist should be able to help you.

Hi Miltop
When do you think you will get your results? Do you have any diagnosis so far?
I am awaiting a referral to a genetics doctor and then hope to get onto the 100,000 genomes project. DD has gdd.

They sent a letter saying results should start rolling out from September. It could be a long time though as I think they are running behind what they anticipated and they anticipated a long time in the first place.

Hope you get your referral.

All the best - keep us posted

upwardsandonwards33 sorry didn't answer-we do have a diagnosis- although the consultants are wavering between 2 different diagnosis and hoping that time will reveal which is more accurate so that we can do future screening and so that future treatments can be developed if possible.

We're in the 100,000 genomes project and entered in November 2016, so we were counted as 'first wave'. We agreed to have all the tests. DD1 (11) is the main candidate. She had a GDD with microcephaly and epilepsy label as a young preschooler, then an MRI showed widespread but subtle cortical dysplasia of the brain. Her label changed to MLD when she started special school. She was part of the first wave of the Deciphering Developmental Delay (DDD) study, which was a genetic micro array study and a precursor to this kind of study, but nothing was found for her.

So here's to hoping that we get some answers!
