FMF primarily affects Armenian, Jewish, Arabic, Turkish, Greek, Italian, Iranian and other populations of Mediterranean ancestry......

Congestive Heart Failure and Coagulopathy Tests

The following 4 tests are the most common genetic disorders that can cause heart attacks, strokes, hypercholesterolemia (elevated cholesterol levels), and hypertriglyceridemia (elevated triglyceride levels).

Apolipoprotein E (ApoE)- Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) is a transporter protein, which is involved in lipoprotein metabolism and cardiovascular disease. Apo E genotyping is used for individuals with high cholesterol and triglyceride levels to examine for genetic component for these lipid abnormalities......

Coagulation Factor V - Coagulation Factor V mutation is one of the main reasons for genetc blood clot generation in an individual's body, which may cause heart attacks or strokes......

Coagulation Factor II - Coagulation Factor II is the second most common mutation that can cause genetic blood clots. Factor II is also known as prothrombin and is the second most prevelant genetic cause of venous thrombosis......

MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) - MTHFR is an enzyme, which is involved in folate metabolism. Mutations in MTHFR gene are responsible for increase in homocysteine levels in plasma and urine......

Iron Metabolism and Overload Disorder

Hemochromatosis- Hemochromatosis is a disease that causes the body to absorb excessive iron from the diet. The surfeit iron is stored in the body's tissues and organs, particularly the heart, liver, pancreas, and joints......

Common Genetic Disorders

Cystic Fibrosis - Cystic Fibrosis is a hereditary disorder that affects mucus glands of the lungs, liver, and other organs. Thick mucus and  weak immune system results in frequent infections in affected organs......

Fragile X Chromosome - Fragile X chromosome is the most common cause of inherited mental impairment. This impairment can range from learning disabilities to more severe cognitive or intellectual disabilities......

Ashkenazi Carrier Panel - Ashkenazi Carrier Panel is a genetic testing panenumber of genetic disorders occur more frequently in Ashkenazi Jewish population.  In this sense screening the general population is quite beneficial in learning about mutations carried in each individual......

Cancer Genetic Profiles

TP53 Tumor Suppressor - is a tumor suppressor gene, which can directly bind to the cell’s DNA and initiate repair or the death of the damaged DNA so it prevents the cell from becoming cancerous and developing tumors......

RAS Family of Proto-Oncogenes - is a superfamily of signal transduction proteins, which are proteins that communicate signals between the cells. DNA mutations in the RAS family genes turns the signals on permanently such that the cells divide non-stop, leading to cancer......

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2) - is a group of medical disorders associated with tumors of the endocrine system. The tumors may be benign or malignant (cancerous). They generally occur in endocrine organs such as thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenals......

Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) - is caused by mutations in the Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) gene, which controls cell division. Most of the mutations cause the production of an APC protein that is abnormally short and nonfunctional......
