Comprehensive Pulmonology panel
In 2019, respiratory disease comprised 3 of the top 10 causes of death according to the World Health Organization (WHO), leading to more than 8 million deaths annually.1
Our comprehensive Pulmonology panel offers a targeted analysis of genes associated with major lung related disorders. By utilizing advanced sequencing technologies and variant analysis algorithms, we identify and interpret genetic variants within these genes. These variants provide valuable insights into the underlying molecular mechanisms of lung conditions, helping to identify at-risk individuals, provide accurate diagnoses, predict disease progression, assess prognosis, and guide personalized treatment strategies.
With the results obtained from our Pulmonology panel, informed decisions can be made regarding preventive measures, therapeutic interventions, and long-term follow-up. This leads to more precise and personalized care, empowering individuals to take proactive steps in managing their GI health.
