Introduction : Intellectual Disability (ID) is the most common cause of referral in the pediatric genetic centers and is characterized by an extreme genetic heterogeneity corresponding to a myriad of rare diseases that complicates the identification of ID's.
Overall today in France, for non-syndromic ID affected patients, the Fra-X detection, the chromosomal microarray analysis and Gene Panel Strategy of 44 ID selected genes leads to a global diagnostic yield for 1/3 patients leaving 2/3 of patients still with no diagnosis.
The advent, and burst, of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies has clearly revolutionized the approaches to diagnosis and research in the field of rare diseases at an international. That's why the main hypothesis of DEFIDIAG is that Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) could allow to improve the diagnostic performance and cost-effectiveness for French patients with ID.
Objective : The main objective of this study is to compare ther percentage of genetic causal diagnosis identified in ID patients by performing trio WGS analysis vs the use of the current French reference strategy (ACPA, X-Fra, DI 44).
Methods and design : This is a prospective study. The investigators expect to include 1275 index case with his/her 2 biological unaffected parents.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Intellectual Disability||Genetic: Trio Whole Genome Sequencing Genetic: Simplex Whole Genome Sequencing Genetic: Current French Reference strategy||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||3825 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||Prospective multicenter diagnostic study comparing the percentage of Intellectual Deficiency (ID) causal diagnosis obtained using 2 main different strategies (Whole Genome Sequencing using a trio strategy (WGST), and reference strategy) applied blindly to consecutive patients with no obvious diagnosis. Each included patient will be his own control; he will benefit from the two main strategies compared, in parallel. The diagnostic yield of Whole Genome Sequencing using a simplex strategy (WGSs) will be also investigated in parallel to the two main strategies but only in a randomized subgroup of the overall population coming for a first genetic advice.|
|Masking:||Single (Outcomes Assessor)|
|Masking Description:||The results of the different strategies will be interpreted blindly, each participating laboratory being in charge for a given investigation center, either of 1) the trio or 2) the 44GPS (part of the reference strategy) and, for the randomized sub-population of the overall population coming for a first genetic advice, simplex analyses. Fra-X and chromosomal microarray analysis corresponding to the reference strategy will follow the routine circuit, which is mainly independent from the WGS circuit.|

- Genetic: Trio Whole Genome Sequencing
WGS trio analysis will be performed using the genome data of the index case in addition to the genome data of his parents. This analysis will follow a consensus protocol that contains 3 obligatory steps: first of all, de novo variants (SNV, CNV and others SV) will be examined in the whole genome data set; then, a SNV/CNV/other SV analysis will be performed under a AR or X linked Mendelian mode hypothesis in the whole genomic regions of a OMIM extended list (that contains all genes already involved in human genetic diseases). Finally, analysis will focus on inherited pathogenic variants under an AD mode hypothesis (analysis of variations already reported as pathogenic in clinVar or HGMD pro; CNV or truncating variation in OMIM genes, etc). When these 3 steps analysis is completed then variants of interest identified at each step will be recorded until examination by a specific multidisciplinary meeting.
- Genetic: Simplex Whole Genome Sequencing
This analysis will be performed using only the index case following a similar strategy than the one used for the WGS trio
- Genetic: Current French Reference strategy
Actual ANPGM recommendations defined by the following analysis: Fra-X + chromosomal microarray analysis + 44GPS
- Diagnostic Yield [ Time Frame: 12 months ]The primary study endpoint is the identification of a causal diagnosis of ID defined as the identification of one class 4 or 5 variant (or two in case of autosomal recessive inheritance) that explains the symptoms presented by the patient. In addition variants classified as 3+, anticipated to become future 4 will be recorded. Specific analysis and follow up of the variant classified as 3+ (i.e. with a high probability of pathogenicity) will be done after the end of the protocol to determine the class 3+ to class 4-5 switch proportion and to describe the new genes/mechanisms involved in ID and revealed by DEFIDIAG.
- Causal structural change [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
Identification of causal structural changes (CNV, translocation, inversion) in the first investigation population (confirmed during the MDM for the WGS strategies)
The clinical characteristics of patients and the diagnostic yield at each step of the incremental selection within WGS analyses (44GPS, OMIMOME, WES, WGS) according to the results of the preceding step as well as according to the results of chromosomal microarray analysis and 44GPS will also be parameters of interest in the whole population.
- Incremental cost-effectiveness ratio [ Time Frame: 24 months ]The cost-effectiveness endpoint will be an efficiency criterion based on the estimation of an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio, expressed in terms of cost per additional positive diagnosis.
- Mean cost of wavering diagnostic research [ Time Frame: 24 months ]Estimation of the cost of wavering diagnostic research
- Percentage of at least one modification in medical, medico-social, rehabilitative and psychological follow-up [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
- Number and type of secondary data [ Time Frame: 12 months ]The number and type of SFs (class 4 or 5 mutation(s)) identified in the parents that specifically consent to this study will be recorded in a specific report. The outcome will be defined by the percentage of SFs in the studied population and the number and type of medical consequences following their identification.
- Median time and type of skills required for analyzing genetic data and for genetic confirmation [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- Median time to obtain results [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
