GenomicInsight ®reports on over 3,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in one comprehensive functional DNA test. Online results include therapeutic recommendations backed by the latest medical literature from PubMed, GWAS (genome wide association study), dbSNP, HapMap (haplotype map) and several others.
Data gleaned from Genomic Insight ® informatics uses the latest medical literature to provide relevant information on nutraceuticals, nutritional supplements, diet, and lifestyle interventions that can proactively influence a patient’s SNPs to reduce or prevent disease risk. Furthermore, pharmacogenomic results included in the profile allow practitioners to predict the efficacy of select pharmaceuticals tailored the individual’s genetic make-up.
Advancing Personalized Medicine Through Empowered DNA Testing
GenomicInsight ® provides a global view of the interconnectedness of SNPs and offers access to informatics that reveal lifestyle and therapeutic recommendations that may influence a gene’s expression and function.
The role of genomics and epigenetics is recognized as an important tool in monitoring, preventing, and treating dysfunction. Furthermore, medical literature supports that epigenetics (the impact of the environment on gene expression) plays a critical role in human health.
GenomicInsight ® with Opus23 Explorer™ identifies how the function or dysfunction of one gene impacts the expression and function of a separately-related gene or SNP.
The GenomicInsight ® DNA Testing Advantage
Genomic Insight ® provides patients with next-level precision medicine. Results allow for:
- Customizable, real-time informatics that can evaluate one area of health or many in one test
- Universal SNP analysis, using a simple buccal collection, without costly “add-on” panels
- Data-driven insights into how a patient may respond to therapeutic or lifestyle changes
- Constantly updating researched-based data powered by our Opus23 Explorer™ software
- DNA Testing for Health Optimization
Research has shown that while some SNP’s may be beneficial to patient health, others carry significant health risks. GenomicInsight ® equips you and your patients with the data analysis and knowledge needed to optimize health on an individual level. By taking into account each patient’s unique genomics, practitioners can be proactive in preventing illness before it begins, and even influence some diseases already in progress.
Understanding DNA Testing
What Are SNPs?
Although most of the genome is virtually identical from person to person, up to 9% of the genome can vary among individuals. This variation contributes to individual differences in both disease susceptibility and therapeutic responses. Single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs (pronounced “snips”), are an important type of genomic variation.
SNPs only make up a tiny portion of the human genome (0.4%), but because the genome is so enormous, this equals over 12 million locations. The differences or variations at these SNP locations contribute to differentiating us and making us unique.
The Power of Epigenetics
While genes and SNPs themselves are virtually unchangeable, their impact on health can be influenced. The influence of environmental, lifestyle, and nutritional factors is referred to as epigenetics. Genomic Insight ® DNA test results offer dynamic opportunities to alter genetic expression – proving that genes do not equal destiny.
Patients and clinicians can work together to implement lifestyle changes that can positively influence the impact of risk-carrying SNPs. These highly-personalized treatment interventions can improve patient outcomes and change lives.
DNA Testing Advances the Application of Precision Medicine
Many SNPs can influence the odds, or risk, a patient has of developing a specific health condition. When it comes to specific diseases or syndromes, most SNPs carry low risks. Low risk does not mean that a SNP is unworthy of attention, but rather that the findings must be interpreted as part of an integrated whole, including other SNP result findings that the GenomicInsight ® panel identifies.
GenomicInsight ® provides an unprecedented and comprehensive understanding of a patient’s SNP genomics, coupled with an explanation of each SNP, its potential impact on health, and interventions clinical research has shown will impact their expression.
The Genomic Insight ® DNA test fosters meaningful conversations between clinicians and patients. Enjoy powerful clinician/patient bonds as you work together to optimize wellness.
