Cancer Genomix

Hereditary or “predisposition” genetic testing looks for specific inherited changes (mutations) in a person’s genetic make-up. Genetic mutations can have harmful, beneficial, neutral, or uncertain effects on health. Mutations that are harmful may increase a person’s chance, or risk, of developing a disease such as cancer. Overall, inherited mutations are thought to play a role in 5-10% of all cancers. These particular disease states are known as hereditary cancers, and proper genetic testing can be used to determine an individual’s risk.

Pharmacogenomics

At the molecular level, certain genes are responsible for how the body processes different medications, and pharmacogenomics combines our understanding of medication metabolism with genetics. Genetic variations may determine the effectiveness or potential side effects to a specific medication.

Only a percentage of the patient population will respond to particular drug treatment, and adverse drug reactions are the 4th leading cause of death. …

What is Carrier Screening?

Carrier screening is a type of genetic test that can tell you whether you carry a gene for certain genetic disorders. When it is done before or during pregnancy, it allows you to find out the chances of having a child with a genetic disorder…
