The inherited gene mutation is the leading cause of hereditary cancer. Hereditary cancer testing can detect inheritable, specific disease-related gene mutations that may elevate the risk of certain cancers, enabling an in-depth assessment of the cancer risk for every patient. The primary goal is the early detection of cancers and the ability to improve health outcomes among susceptible individuals. We offer a comprehensive test kit for identifying mutations in 31 genes that are responsible for hereditary cancers in the vital organs of the human body.
Breast cancer type 1, early-onset, or BRCA1; Breast Cancer type 2, early-onset, or BRCA2; and several other relevant, genetic screening tests are routinely prescribed to assess the odds of breast cancer in an individual. Periodic checkups for susceptible persons and early diagnosis are known to dramatically improve the time required for complete cure.
Our genetic tests for cardiac diseases offer useful insights about the following. 1. Identification of potentially critical heart conditions. 2. Awareness about disorders and diagnosis of early symptoms 3. Development of customized strategies for clinical management 4. Formulation of specific diet and lifestyle strategies for better health 5. Individualized medication and dosage
Some of the fetal DNA is passed into the bloodstream of the mother during pregnancy. The NIPT is essentially a prenatal screening that analyzes this genetic information to diagnose several abnormalities in the unborn babies. it can be performed any time after the initial 9 weeks of pregnancy, earlier than any other prenatal screening or diagnostic examinations, including the double marker test. In sharp contrast to the de facto triple marker test, which has an accuracy of 70%, the non-invasive prenatal screening is known to sport a precision of over 99%.
Obesity is recognised as a global epidemic. Approximately 30% of US adults are now obese having a BMI of 30 or higher. It is a multifactorial disease resulting from the interaction between genetic factors and lifestyle. Nevertheless, it is now established that heredity has a pivotal role to play in making a person more susceptible to weight gain. An increase in the bodyweight beyond a stipulated threshold is also correlated with increased risks for type 2 diabetes, cancers, and even death. Obesity and overweight are accounted for more deaths worldwide than being underweight.
Individuals diagnosed with cystic fibrosis or CF must inherit two instances of the defective CF gene, that is, one copy from each parent. Hence, many people have only a single copy of the mutant CF gene, thus, remain asymptomatic carriers throughout their lives. However, in the event both parents happen to carry the mutated CF gene, the offspring could inherit a pair of the defective CF gene and the symptoms are expected to surface early. Over 1,700 genetic mutations that may cause the disease are identified to date.
It is estimated that 8 percent of people around the world have signs of age-related macular degeneration. Genetic mutations may cause age-related macular degeneration. About 20 genes are identified to date that can influence the likelihood of developing AMD. While the age-related macular degeneration usually does not have a distinct pattern of inheritance, it appears to exist in some families. An estimated 15% to 20% of individuals identified with AMD have at least one first-degree relative, such as a sibling or parent with the condition. Females are more predisposed to AMD than males.
The Genetic Renal Panel or GRP is a comprehensive test battery for patients diagnosed with several health conditions including:- 1. Thrombotic Microangiopathies or TMAs a)Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura or TTP b)Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome or aHUS 2. C3 Glomerulopathies a)Dense Deposit Disease or DDD b)C3 Glomerulonephritis or C3GN The test may also be suggested for the healthy persons having a history of these disorders in their families.
Genetic mutation may lead to a blockage formation in the sperm flow or cause abnormal sperm production. Among the most common causes of infertility in males are chromosomal conditions, such as Down syndrome, Klinefelter’s syndrome, and Y chromosome deletions. While infertility caused by single-gene mutations is common, the next-generation sequencing-based tests can detect these conditions with utmost precision.
1. As many as 10% of female infertility cases have a genetic basis. 2. Hereditary factors may cause the onset of infertility at a lower age than that of the normal population. 3. Predisposing genetic factors may make a person more susceptible to these disorders.
