Vaccinomics: A Personalized Approach

Vaccinomics: A Personalized Approach

Many factors can play a role in determining the effectiveness of vaccines, including the interplay between genomics, epigenetics, and the microbiome. The study of how these factors influence how a person develops immunity from a vaccination is called Vaccinomics, and...
Pharmacogenomics

Pharmacogenomics

Adverse drug reactions, over prescribing, under prescribing, and trial-and-error attempts to identify appropriate medications puts patients at risk and wastes billions of dollars every year. Half of the U.S. adult population uses at least one medication on a regular...
Beginner’s Guide To Genomic Medicine

Beginner’s Guide To Genomic Medicine

Genomics studies the interactions of the environment and our DNA. With 20,000–25,000 genes that contain over 3 billion base pairs of DNA, our genome provides the blueprint for everything that happens in our bodies. Genomic Tests Genomic testing starts with collecting...
Nutritional Genomics

Nutritional Genomics

Why are some people more susceptible to diabetes or obesity? Why do certain foods help some people more effectively than others? Why do nutritional requirements vary from person to person? The answer lies in our genes. Genomic analysis unlocks an individual’s...

Migraines

Migraines

Migraine headaches are one of the most common neurological disorders worldwide, affecting between 10–20% of the adult population. Migraines are caused by an interaction between environmental and genetic factors. Genomic studies have dramatically increased our...
Men’s Health

Men’s Health

Heart disease, diabetes, prostate cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases rank at the top of men’s health concerns. A multitude of factors are involved, and the fact that every person is genetically different adds to this complexity. Analyzing a patient’s unique...
Women’s Health

Women’s Health

Estrogen metabolism is one of the most important factors influencing a women’s health. 70% of breast cancer cases are estrogen-induced. 10-15% of all cases are due to hereditary gene mutations such as BRCA1 or BRCA2. Understanding a woman’s genomic profile associated...
Healthy Aging

Healthy Aging

Human longevity is a polygenic trait, meaning multiple genes are responsible for overall health. The Human Genome Project advanced medical science in the understanding of which genes are involved in specific metabolic or disease processes. Genomics has improved...
Detoxification

Detoxification

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, more than 80,000 toxic chemicals have been developed in the last century. These toxins in our food and the environment can overwhelm the natural detoxification process. When this happens, disease can result....
