Ataxia-telangiectasia: diagnosis and treatment.

Much progress has been made in the early diagnosis of ataxia-telangiectasia since the gene was cloned in 1995, A clinical diagnosis can now be confirmed by radiosensitivity testing (colony survival assay), immunoblotting, and mutation detection.

Little progress has been made in treating the progressive ataxia.
