Huntington's disease Panel
Huntington's disease Panel
The Huntington’s disease test is based on Whole Genome Sequencing Test. As such, it analyzes all Common and Rare Variants associated with Huntington’s disease instead of a limited set of genes. Huntington’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that causes uncontrolled movements, emotional problems, and loss of thinking ability (cognition). Adult-onset Huntington disease, the most common form of this disorder, usually appears in a person's thirties or forties. Early signs and symptoms can include irritability, depression, small involuntary movements, poor coordination, and trouble learning new information or making decisions. Many people with Huntington disease develop involuntary jerking or twitching movements known as chorea. As the disease progresses, these movements become more pronounced. Affected individuals may have trouble walking, speaking, and swallowing. People with this disorder also experience changes in personality and a decline in thinking and reasoning abilities. A less common form of Huntington disease known as the juvenile form begins in childhood or adolescence. It also involves movement problems and mental and emotional changes. Additional signs of the juvenile form include slow movements, clumsiness, frequent falling, rigidity, slurred speech, and drooling. School performance declines as thinking and reasoning abilities become impaired. Along with environmental factors, Genetics plays a key role in the regulation of Huntington’s disease. - 5 genes analyzed - 100% of genomic regions covered - Intragenic and intergenic regions analyzed - All variants paneled"

Learn more about your risk to develop +50 diseases and conditions. Start taking a proactive approach to your health with our actionable insights.
Using a simple at home blood sample, we can collect the 100% of your DNA and analyze the genetic sequence in our lab.
The sequence is divided into several parts, amplified, grouped in clusters and then sequenced.
This sequencing process reveals the order of nucleotides that make up the original DNA sample.
We then compare the genome with a generic and globally recognized reference DNA sequence.
Simple Blood Sample Collection
Painless, quick at home sample collection. User friendly device with CE-IVD mark and FDA approval.
Simply follow the packaging instructions and send the sample back using the pre-paid returns label.
Genomic Consultation Service
