Genomic Medicine Unit


Introduction

Clínica Planas reinforces its care services with the opening of the new Genomic Medicine Unit in accordance with Veritas Intercontinental, world leader in sequencing and interpreting the whole genome.

This pioneering initiative opens the door of personalized medicine to all patients of Clinica Planas, in terms of diagnosis and treatment as well as in prevention.

Tests are carried out from a saliva sample.

The service includes Genetic Counselling by an expert doctor for the interpretation and preventive treatment plan.

A service for the entire lifetime that allows future updating based on re-classified or incorporated variants.

This test is based on the sequencing and interpretation of the Complete Genome in healthy individuals. It allows knowing the risk of more than 650 genetic-based diseases, more than 50 common diseases with genetic influence, pharmacogenetics and individual characteristics. It goes together with the interpretation of genetic advice and the guidelines of prevention and/or medical treatment. This genetic test, which is the key in preventive medicine, will allow you to adapt your medical care and life habits according to your personal genetics.

MYGENOME DIAGNOSTIC

DNA Test to Diagnose Diseases

Genetic tests for patients with symptoms or suspicion of hereditary genetic disease.

Mygenome with Diagnostic Interpretation is a genetic test that uses the whole genome sequencing (WGS) and its diagnostic interpretation to help to identify diseases of suspected genetic origin. Additionally, the test includes information about drug response (Pharmacogenomics); and for adults, the full myGenome report as well.

This diagnostic genetic testing includes:

•    2 consultations with a Genetic Advisor. One prior to the genetic test, where the doctor will deeply examine your medical history and assess if the test is suitable for you; and one after the test, in which he will explain the results obtained, its scope and the actions to be taken.
•    Information on more the specific genetic disease (including the 59 genes recommended by the ACMG - American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics.
•    Review of your results by an expert clinical team.
•    Diagnostic interpretation based on clinical signs and symptoms.
•    Information about more than 225 diseases of which you can be a carrier, that is, that you can pass onto your children.
•    Information about how your body reacts to more than 300 drugs based on your genetics.
•    Information on more than 50 genetic traits related to diet and nutrition, longevity, sports, behaviour, cardiovascular health, metabolism and immune system.
•    Encryption, anonymity and highly-secure data storage of your genetic information.
•    Information about your ancestors.

To who is it addressed?

MyGenome with Diagnostic Interpretation is indicated for patients with a complex medical history or symptoms that suggest a genetic disease, even when other genetic tests have been negative. Through the result, patients may know variants that explain the symptoms of their disease.

The results may have consequences for treatment decisions or prognosis, for medical management options, as well as to affect other family members. This test is available for adults (>18 years) and for minors with parental consent.

Complete study

It is highly recommended that biological samples from parents, if available, should be analyzed since it may be helpful in interpreting the patient’s genomic data. Please note that parental sample analysis is included in the price, but a report will not be issued for parents.

MYEXOME DIAGNOSTIC

DNA Test for Disease Diagnostic

It is the whole exome sequencing for patients with symptoms that suggest they may have a genetic disease or have a complex clinical history, and want to know the underlying cause that may exists.

MyExome with Diagnostic Interpretation is a genetic test that uses the sequencing of the whole exome (WES) and its diagnostic interpretation to help to identify diseases with suspected genetic origin.

MY CANCER RISK DNA

Mycancerriskdna is a genetic test based on the sequencing of the whole exome or WES (Whole Exome Sequencing) and subsequent analysis of 40 genes related to hereditary cancer.

This genetic test helps you to know the risk of developing inherited cancer and allows the specialist to a specific follow up of the patient, as well as to discuss preventive options with him/her.

Gene Test

In the genetic test, myCancerRiskDNA, 40 genes related to cancer and hereditary cancer syndromes are analyzed. The genes are as follows: APC; BRIP1; HOXB13; NBN ; PTCH1; ATM; CDH1; MITF; NF1; PTEN; AXIN2; CDK4; MLH1; NTHL1; RAD51C; BAP1; CDKN2A; MLH3; PALB2; RAD51D; BARD1; CHEK2; MSH2; PMS2; SMAD4; BMPR1A; EPCAM; MSH3; POLD1; STK11; BRCA1; FLCN; MSH6; POLE; SUFU; BRCA2; GREM1; MUTYH; POT1 and TP53.

To who is it addressed?

• People with a family history of cancer suspected of hereditary nature, or patients with family members who have developed cancer at an early age (<50 years).
• People with various types of tumours.
• People with cancer, in order to know their possible hereditary character.
