Genes4Lifeis a genetic test for people who wants to become pregnant. The Genes4Life panel consists of 432 genes associated with more than 400 hereditary diseases. All the recessive diseases covered by Genes4Life are combined present in 1 out of 100 live births. Additionally, many recessive genes associated with infertility are included.
As the diseases are recessive and carrying one or more of the disease-causing alleles is not unusual, the Genes4Life test is best used to screen for partner compatibility. By screening both parents, the test can ensure that no two copies of the same disease-causing gene are present. This is especially useful for parents when selecting donors for fertility treatment. For partners that seek fertility treatment without donors, we recommend the Genes2Life test, as it only screens for diseases that are treatable.
The Genes4Life panel includes both the Genes2Life and X-Linked Carrier test genes as well as many others. The panel is regularly updated according to the newest recommendations and knowledge obtained in the field of genetic diseases.
TYPES OF GENETIC DISEASES WE INVESTIGATE WITH GENES4LIFE:
Provide knowledge about 432 genes related to rare diseases due to recessive inheritance. We study more than 100 high-prevalence diseases and more than 400 low-prevalence diseases.
Prevalence in medicine is a measure of the total number of people in a specific group who have (or had) a certain disease, condition, or risk factor at a specific point in time or during a given period. Reference: https://www.medicinenet.com/prevalence/definition.htm
WE RECOMMEND THIS TEST:
- For couples trying to get pregnant.
- Before starting an assisted fertilization treatment.
- Before starting treatment with donor eggs or sperm. Both patient and donor can be healthy carriers of diseases with a genetic mutation in the same gene.
