Genes Tested and The Associated Conditions
Participants in the program are screened for specific genetic differences (variants) that are linked to an increase chance of developing cancer, cardiovascular problems, or other types of genetic conditions.
The genes and conditions are based on the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) guidelines for reporting secondary findings. Currently, this program is screening 78 genes associated with 38 conditions. As researchers make new discoveries, we may expand this list with committee approval.
This is a research program; it does not screen for all variants and therefore is cannot replace comprehensive clinical genetic testing. All identified research result(s) will be confirmed in a certified clinical laboratory.
