Understanding Cancer, Cardiac & Carrier Status

With this once in a lifetime test, you'll be able to truly understand your risk or your future children's risk at developing conditions related to cancer, heart health, and inheritable genetic diseases. Put your mind at ease - with these genetic tests, feel empowered by the knowledge you gain and take control of your health through preventative measures.

Cancer Status test examines 123 genes associated with potential risk for hereditary cancer syndrome. These panels include well-established genes, but also includes candidate genes that may have only been recently discovered or for which additional research is needed. The hereditary cancer tests maximize the chances of identifying pathogenic cancer susceptibility variants, while providing a comprehensive review of candidate genes to give you information you can use now and potentially in the future.

This test works by analyzing cell-free DNA (cfDNA). It detects the presence of specific genomic markers called circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in 9 cancer driver genes. This test analyzes 96 tumor markers in 9 cancer driver genes.

Cardiac Status helps identify 23 traits associated with an increased risk of developing certain heart-related health conditions, and provides insight into your potential responses to commonly prescribed medications, so your physician can develop a more personalized treatment for you.

  • Learn if you have specific genetic variants associated with an increased risk of developing certain heart-related heart conditions.
  • Learn how you are likely to respond to eight classes of commonly prescribed medications that are used to treat heart-related conditions.
  • Learn which heart-related medications should be used with caution and may cause adverse side effects.

Carrier Status allows patients to gain knowledge on their risks of passing inheritable genetic diseases to their children or future children. A more comprehensive assessment can be obtained if both parents are tested.

  • Screens for more than 120 recessive genetic diseases.
  • Supported by rigorous science using clinically-relevant, well-validated markers and assays.
  • Enables physicians to offer calculated guidance on pre and postnatal health.

Understanding Carrier Status
Each person has two copies of the genetic materials, one copy inherited from each parent. Many genetic diseases are recessive, meaning the disease is caused by inheriting a mutation at the same DNA location from both parents. If a parent carries a mutation in one of the two copies of the DNA, he/she is a carrier of the genetic disease.

A carrier has a 50% chance of passing the same mutation to the child. If both parents are carriers, the child will have a 25% chance of inheriting both copies of the mutation, thus leading to the development of the genetic disease. Some inherited diseases are more common in certain ethnic groups and in people with a family history of genetic disorders.
