The presence of specific genetic variants or a certain combination of alleles may lead to an increased susceptibility of an individual to a particular disease. ViennaLab Diagnostics offers reliable assays for risk assessment prior to disease onset and early diagnosis.
- A genetic predisposition is an often inherited genetic change which contributes to the development of a disease but does not directly cause it.
- Genetic modifiers, lifestyle and environmental factors may increase the risk.
- Several genetic alterations are known to enhance an individual’s susceptibility to illnesses like cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer´s disease, ankylosing spondylitis (Morbus Bechterew) and cancer.
- Early diagnosis is crucial for timely onset of treatment, maintaining life quality and life expectancy.
