Radio interview by Prof. Arndt Rolfs, MD, Chief Medical Director

Prof Arndt Rolfs, MD, Chief Medical Director of Centogene, discussed with Suzanne Radford at her radio broadcast "Eye on Health", about the basic aspects of genetic testing, its huge medical benefit physicians and patients will receive as well as treatment options for rare diseases and newborn screening.

The best period of life for testing, focussed on the most frequent diseases, is the newborn period - an early diagnosis ensures that the right decision is being taken for treatment: the earlier the treatment starts, the better the prognosis is for the newborn's life. The same applies to more common diseases like breast cancer - consider the family history of your patient and in case of any uncertainty, conduct genetic testing to help your patient with the right treatment option.
