Mechanistic Insights Into Cancer Predisposition
Genetic predisposition to cancer is tightly linked to an increased rate of somatic mutations. For one of the corresponding syndromes, the underlying defect has now been revealed to affect the DNA […]
Understanding DNA Alterations in Colorectal Cancer
Germline and somatic DNA alterations may cause inherited diseases and/or cancer. While CENTOGENE’s routine diagnostic focus is on the former, we frequently address oncological questions in research […]
Genetic modifiers in hereditary breast cancer
Age at manifestation varies widely in carriers of cancer susceptibility variants. A recent study involving scientists from CENTOGENE suggested that this phenomenon is partially explained by certain […]
Robustness of Comprehensive DNA- and RNA-Based Assays at Diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia Using Blood and Bone Marrow Stored on Filter Cards
"Molecular analyses in hematologic malignancies gained considerable importance in the last decade at diagnosis and for minimal residual disease (MRD). In our study, we performed a comparison of […]
Characterization of the Novel Indolylmaleimides'
Protein kinase inhibitors are widely used in chemotherapeutic cancer regimens. Maleimide derivatives such as SB-216763 act as GSK-3 inhibitor targeting cell proliferation, cell death and cell cycle […]
Next-Generation Sequencing of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 Genes for the Diagnostics of Breast and/or Ovarian Cancer
We explored a more efficient genetic screening strategy based on next-generation sequencing of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in 210 hereditary breast and/or ovarian cancer patients.
‘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.
The Novel Arylindolylmaleimide PDA-66 Displays Pronounced Antiproliferative Effects in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Cells
PDA-66 displays significant antileukemic activity in ALL cells and classifies as candidate for further evaluation as a potential drug in targeted therapy of ALL.
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.
