‘Omics’ and ‘Omes’ – The Future of Personalised Medicine
Advanced treatment – tailored to the individual patient instead of “one-size-fits-all” – is the zenith of personalized, or precision, medicine.
Asparagine Synthetase Deficiency: New Inborn Errors of Metabolism
Asparagine synthetase deficiency (ASD) is a newly identified neurometabolic disorder characterized by severe congenital microcephaly, severe global developmental delay, intractable seizure disorder, […]
Alsin Related Disorders
Mutations in the ALS2 gene cause three distinct disorders: infantile ascending hereditary spastic paraplegia, juvenile primary lateral sclerosis, and autosomal recessive juvenile amyotrophic lateral […]
Rett-Like Onset in Late-Infantile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis
We present clinical and molecular findings of a patient with ceroid-lipofuscinosis CLN7, with a compound heterozygous mutation of the MFSD8 gene, with Rett syndrome clinical signs onset and a later […]
Unraveling Cellular Phenotypes of Novel TorsinA/TOR1A Mutations
Here, we report two new, putative TOR1A mutations (p.A14_P15del and p.E121K) that we examined functionally in comparison with wildtype (WT) protein and two known mutations (E and p.R288Q).
Mutation in FAM134B Causing Hereditary Sensory Neuropathy with Spasticity in a Turkish Family
Hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy (HSAN) type 2 is a rare autosomal recessive disease that was first described by Ota et al in 1973 (1). We report the clinical and pathological findings of […]
Continuous Cardiac Troponin I Release in Fabry Disease
Fabry disease (FD) is a rare lysosomal storage disorder also affecting the heart. Continuous cTNI elevation seems to occur in a substantial proportion of patients with FD.
Lessons from Everyday Stroke Care for Clinical Research and Vice Versa: Comparison of a Comprehensive and a Research Population of Young Stroke Patients
The comparison of baseline characteristics between the sifap1 study and the GQH registry revealed differences mainly determined by age.
Relative Acidic Compartment Volume as a Biomarker
In this study, we optimized the Lysotracker assay and validated it in a prospective study of more than 100 NPC patients derived from multiple independent clinical cohorts to ensure statistical power. […]

MOx represents a multidimensional approach looking at each patient from different angles to combine deep knowledge and insights for a holistic view.
Whole genome sequencing (WGS) identifies almost all changes in a patient’s DNA by sequencing both the entire protein-coding and the non-coding regions of the genome.
Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) is a comprehensive genetic test that identifies changes in a patient's DNA that are causative or related to their medical concerns.
The CENTOGENE Biodatabank – the world’s largest real-world data repository for rare and neurodegenerative diseases.
Biomarkers play a vital role in the diagnosis of diseases as well as monitoring severity, progression, and treatment efficacy.
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Panels: Our NGS panel portfolio tests for a wide selection of hereditary genetic conditions. They offer a fast, thorough, and cost-effective diagnostic tool for patients with distinctive clinical features.
Most hematologic disorders have a genetic link – highlighting the importance of quick and comprehensive answers. We have identified genetic variants associated with hematological diseases in more than 300 different genes.
Advances in genetic techniques now enable many important insights into kidney-related diseases. A genetic diagnosis can better classify disease, give information about disease pathogenesis, and suggest time-sensitive options for treatment.
Ear, Nose & Throat
The ear is essential for many of our most basic functions. It is crucial to distinguish between genetic disorders and those caused by environmental factors as early as possible.
Timely detection and diagnosis of heart disorders can lead to enhanced treatment options, help to prevent sudden cardiac death, and improve prognosis.
Many genetic disorders of the bone cause skeletal and joint abnormalities that may seriously interfere with normal growth and development.
Congenital malformations (“birth defects”) remain a leading cause of infant mortality and childhood morbidity.
Identifying genetic causes of infertility facilitates informed decisions and family planning for your patients. With 10% of infertility cases being linked to genetic factors, their detection can provide vital answers.
Genetic testing for hereditary and somatic cancers can provide life-changing results in affected patients and their relatives, accompanied by potential actionable steps for genetic-related cancers.
Genetic testing is becoming an increasingly important tool in determining the cause of hereditary ophthalmologic conditions.
Genetic testing can clearly diagnose many genetic disorders of the brain and nervous system. It can guide decisions towards more effective medical management and treatments.
Genetic testing can help uncover the cause of persistent, often debilitating, undiagnosed symptoms in patients suffering from suspected metabolic disorders.
