Genomepatri™ Immunity is a DNA-based immunity assessment, for better prevention and health. You will get 15 reports which help you discover genetic strengths and vulnerabilities which affect your body's immune response and risk for disease, including coronavirus infection. This includes extensive analysis of your genetic predisposition to viral invasions (such as COVID-19), nutrient requirements which boost your immunity, reaction to antiviral drugs and potential health risks that need to be managed.
Why Genomepatri™ Immunity?
KNOW YOUR GENES FOR BETTER PREVENTION
Genes modulate your immune response - which is your body’s mechanism to fight against viral invasion/infection. Having certain genetic variants could mean that you are more susceptible to severe infections caused by bacteria and viruses (eg., novel coronavirus).
Apart from factors like existing health concerns and environmental risk, genetics affects your overall risk for infections such as COVID-19, caused by the novel SARS-CoV-2 virus. Identifying potential health risks and concerns that arise due to changes in the genetic code is vital. DNA-based changes can put someone at risk for drug-induced adverse effects, too, which is covered in this test. By recognizing these risks beforehand, one can switch to the right action plan and minimize their overall risk for infections and adverse outcomes.
Genomepatri Immunity report is a DNA-based assessment of certain factors which affect your overall immunity and risk for coronavirus infection. Various parameters in the body affect immune response, such as nutrient status, lifestyle (sleep, exercise etc) and genetics - they all have an impact on immune signalling and function. Genetic factors play a crucial role in regulating antiviral activity & recovery in your body and thereby, overall immunity and risk for infection.
YOUR GENES REGULATE YOUR IMMUNE RESPONSE
The WHO, CDC and other agencies have reported greater fatality and worse outcomes in COVID-19 infection, if patients already have certain health risks. Genetic risk for these conditions or having a predisposition to ‘cytokine storm’ (a hyper responsive immune reaction) could affect severity of infections like COVID-19.
YOUR RESPONSE TO ANTIVIRAL DRUGS
Genetic screening will help physicians avoid adverse effects and optimise treatment for patients. Patients who carry certain genetic variations are at risk for severe drug-induced adverse effects. The USFDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) recommends genetic testing prior to administering these drugs, to reduce adverse effects.
YOUR BODY’S NUTRIENT STORES
Genes are involved in the bioactivation, conversion and utilization of vitamins and minerals in the body. Having genetic risk for reduced nutrient levels indicates a need for higher intake via diet/supplementation, for maintaining your immune system.
