Analysis of genetic variations that alter the function of specific genes
and influence individual susceptibility to particular pathological states


Macurisk

MACURISK is a genetic test that analyzes the presence of single-nucleotide polimorphisms in some genes that regulate the uptake of protective micronutrients into the eye.
MACURISK evaluates the individual susceptibility to Maculopathy development and provides personalized nutritional recommendations that can prevent disease development and progression.




Alzheimer risk

Many studies have clarified that specific allelic variants are able to influence the individual risk of developing different forms of senile dementia, including Alzheimer's disease.
For this reason, the genetic analysis of polymorphisms represents a valuable tool and a valid ally for the early and timely prevention of degenerative diseases through specific protective activities and food supplements.
Genus Biotech offers a fast and reliable service of genotyping of 3 polymorphisms in the APOE and BDNF genes. Rare allele variants of APOE can increase the individual risk of developing Alzheimer.




BRCA1 / BRCA2

The BRCA1 / BRCA2 test is a genetic analysis capable of identifying hereditary mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which play a crucial role in the development of breast and / or ovarian cancer. The TEST offered by Genus Biotech allows to reveal the presence of predisposing pathological mutations, in order to promptly adopt targeted and effective prevention strategies.



MTHFR

The genetic deficiency of methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) commonly causes elevated plasma homocysteine ​​levels (hyperhomocysteinemia). The MTHFR enzyme plays an important role in the transformation of amino acids, in particular, it mediates the conversion of homocysteine ​​into methionine. The TEST offered by Genus Biotech allows to identify genetic variations in the MTHFR gene that can determine inactive or poorly functional forms of the enzyme, causing the accumulation of Homocysteine ​​in the blood, especially in individuals who show a deficiency of Vitamin B. In these individuals a supplement daily low-dose folic acid can reduce and often normalize homocysteine ​​levels.


Analysis of polymorphisms associated with biosynthetic activity Omega-3 and Omega-6

The DESATURASE INDEX TEST developed by Genus Biotech analyses 6 polymorphisms in the FADS1 / 2 and ELOVL2 genes whose enzymatic products influence the synthesis of Omega-3 and Omega-6 from dietary fatty acids.
With the DESATURASE INDEX TEST you can:
- Reveal the presence of genetic variants affecting the relationship
between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids
- Define Custom Integration Plans to Maintain an Omega-3 / Omega-6 Optimum Ratio
