Genetic screening is a type of test that identifies changes in genes. The results can confirm or rule out a suspected genetic condition or help determine a person’s chance of developing or passing on a genetic disorder including Cancer.
Many diseases do not show signs or symptoms. By the time it surfaced or is noticed it may be too late.
The normal blood test only provides a diagnostic report, without knowing if you’re actually carrying a mutated disease-related gene!
A molecule composed of 2 chains coiled around each other to form a double helix carrying genetic instructions for the development, functioning, growth and reproduction of all known organisms.
- When a CT, MRI, PEP scan views an ‘image’, it means a tumour has already formed!
- mRNA can screen the mutated gene expression level BEFORE a tumour is formed!
- Early detection prevents the occurrence of a disease
- To monitor the changes in gene expression that indicates a disease to relapse, like cancer
- To determine the types of treatment or medications suitable for a patient
