A Multiomic Approach to Diagnosing Patients and Accelerating Treatments
An approach which integrates genetic and biochemical testing as first-line diagnostic tool for patients with inherited metabolic disorders.
Broader Applicability of Rare Disease Biomarker
Biomarkers have the potential to serve numerous purposes (diagnosis, prognosis, monitoring, etc.) when well-characterized in large cohorts of patients and controls. Building on its rich source of […]
An Innovative Approach for Biomarker Discovery
Some genetic disorders, including hereditary angioedema (HAE), do not manifest chronically, but by unpredictable attacks. CENTOGENE has developed a protocol for the collection of patient samples […]
Working Towards a Better Understanding of Parkinson’s Disease
Detailed characterization of large patient cohorts in a uniform manner is critical for gaining therapeutically relevant insights into rare diseases. CENTOGENE is a major stakeholder in the LIPAD […]
Biomarker-Based Monitoring of Treatment Efficacy
The value of most metabolic biomarkers is restricted to diagnostic settings. A few biomarkers, however, can also be used to monitor treatment efficacy. A recent study published in the Journal of […]
Multiomic Characterization of Rare Disease Patients
Applying a multiomic approach to rare genetic diseases has great potential to synergistically generate truly novel insights. CENTOGENE is therefore complementing its rich phenomic and genomic […]
Improving Diagnostic Options for Rare Diseases
A diagnostic strategy for rare diseases based on a combination of standard laboratory parameters has long been sought after. To help advance this approach, CENTOGENE actively participates in […]
Turning Rare Disease Networks into Knowledge
CENTOGENE’s well-recognized expertise in Gaucher disease (GD) has helped to establish a global network of physicians interested in and aware of this rare metabolic disorder. The fact that CENTOGENE […]
Large Patient Cohort Enables Insights into a Rare Disease
Farber disease (FD) is a severe disorder for which rarity has hampered a comprehensive understanding. A recent study on a large cohort of patients provides unprecedented novel insights into FD. The […]
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.
