Acylglycines are an important class of metabolites that are used in the diagnosis of several organic acidurias and mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation disorders. This test is intended for the diagnosis and monitoring of several organic acidemias and fatty acid disorders affecting multiple metabolic pathways. Disorders diagnosed by Acylglycines assay: Isovaleric acidemia 3-Methylcrotonyl-Co-A-carboxylase deficiency Short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase(SCAD) deficiency Ethylmalonic Encephalopathy Propionic acidemia Glutaric aciduria type-1, 2 and 3 Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase(MCAD) Beta-ketothiolase deficiency 17-Beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase deficiency Isobutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency Short/branched-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (SBCADD) The test will also allow physicians to determine dietary compliance or the effectiveness of dietary/cofactor therapy for their patients. It can also be used, alone or in conjunction with other tests, to confirm the findings of a positive expanded newborn screen.
