These tests help identify individuals who carry a deleterious gene mutation but are usually asymptomatic. However, the disease manifests in children when carrier-couples each transmit a mutant copy of the gene to their children.
An inherited disorder where extra iron builds up in tissues resulting in organ damage. It is caused by mutations in the HFE gene. Our DNA test identifies mutations in HFE and will help doctors help affected patients manage the disease.
BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations are strongly linked to increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer in women. Genetic tests that MedGenome offers can help identify carriers in families where breast and ovarian cancer incidence is known.
