What is genome medicine ?
Genome medicine refers to a new and emerging medical specialty which involves obtaining and using the genetic information from an individual’s genome to make diagnostic or clinical decisions regarding a person’s health, to achieve more precise diagnosis of a person’s medical condition and to determine treatments which may work better, be more cost effective and/or have less adverse side effects. In fact, with the availability of cutting edge advancements in genome analysis technologies, it is clearly demonstrated how effective and useful genome medicine is in the fields of pharmaceutical sciences, in rare, prior undiagnosed or diagnostically challenging disease diagnostics, in oncology/cancer, in preventive medicine, in newborn genetic screens, in organ transplantation, in prenatal and post-implantation genetic testing, and in infectious disease diagnostics. Overall, genome medicine significantly improves the accuracy of establishing a clinical diagnosis and determining better and more accurate pharmaceutical treatment decisions. Moreover, since each individual has a unique genetic composition in their genome, genome medicine uses your unique genome information in a personalized strategy to establish more accurate and tailored treatments for your medical conditions, including to help you identify more effective medications with no or less adverse side effects.
At CEN4GEN, we offer several cutting edge genome medicine testing options to help you with the diagnosis of certain genetic medical conditions, to diagnose a rare infectious disease you may have, to identify better or more effective treatments if you are a cancer patient, to help you identify more effective medications with less adverse side effects for treating your medical condition, to screen your newborn infant for certain medical conditions which are preventable or treatable when detected early, and to use whole genome or whole exome screens to help you early detect and prevent or delay the onset of certain medical conditions which have a genetic basis. To learn more about how our genome medicine testing options can suit your needs, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and a representative will guide you through the testing process and provide more information for you and your healthcare provider.
