GINEFEM

The most comprehensive preventive genetic testing for healthy people

The most comprehensive preventive genetic testing for healthy people

Did you know that 17% of people present alterations in their genes that increases their probability of developing a genetic disease or illness? Learning about these alterations can allow us to reduce the risk of developing certain diseases by simply changing our lifestyle habits.

For this reason, at THIS together with GINEFEM we offer our patients the possibility of carrying out the Test MyGenome (1.950€), a key tool in personalized preventive medicine which can adapt medical care and lifestyle habits according to the genetics of each individual.

 

With the help of a very simple saliva test we can learn all the necessary information regarding the risk factors of different types of hereditary diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease and alterations to the immune system amongst others.

More information

What type of pathologies can be analyzed with MyGenome?

This test offers a comprehensive analysis of cardiovascular diseases and cancer and also includes the following types of diseases and illnesses:

  • Susceptibility to cancer
  • Pathologies and illnesses carrier screening
  • Coagulation disorders
  • Endocrine and metabolic disorders
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Neurological disorders
  • Inner organ health
  • Mitochondrial disease

 

How does the Test work?

MyGenome is a genetic sequencing test which is carried out through a saliva sample. A Whole Genome Sequencing is carried out and the patient receives a comprehensive report. All the tests must be prescribed by a medical specialist and will include pre- and post-test genetic consultation.

What is included in the report?

  • Clinical results: explanation of the 566 genes related to severe pathologies and the ones that may potentially have a serious impact on a patient’s health.
  • Potential carrier screening: a screening for more than 200 diseases and pathologies of which a patient may be an asymptomatic carrier.
  • Multifactorial diseases
    Complex pathologies which depend on the genes and on the surrounding factors.
  • Pharmacogenomics: a study related to differences in genes and metabolism and the response of the patient to more than 150 different medical drugs.
  • Genetic characteristics: individual genetic characteristics related to nutrition, diet, sports and athletics, longevity, behavior, hormones, metabolism, physical appearance, sensory perception or the reaction to substances.
  • Ancestors
    A study on DNA variations to determine the individual’s origins and ancestry.

Why sequence the genome?

MyGenome identifies the variants of the genome and analyzes them based on a clinical classification and genomic comprehension system. The result is an explanation of the genome that informs the patient about possible future issues and allows to implement changes that will possitively affect their future life.

The results include:

  • Information about more than 650 diseases and illnesses.
  • Information about more than 225 potential carrier screenings.
  • Information about more than 150 medications and drugs.
  • Information about 59 gene recommendations by ACMG (American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics).
  • Information about more than 50 genetic characteristics and traits.
  • Information about 15 multifactorial disorders.

Is MyGenome suitable for all the age groups?

MyGenome is a test designed for everyone who is of age and currently does not present any health issues. MyNewborn is a genetic screening designed for minors. This test focuses on the genetic pathologies that are likely to develop during childhood.
