Detecting vascular disease at its earliest, and most treatable, stage is achievable with genetic testing. We provide fast and comprehensive diagnostic testing for inherited vascular diseases using one or a selection of multi-gene panel tests and single gene tests, which together cover the majority of associated genes.

Fabry disease is a multi-system lysosomal storage disorder. As it is caused by an enzyme deficiency, enzyme replacement therapy is the standard treatment option. To overcome some of the issues with this strategy, alternatives are being explored through a collaborative effort involving researchers…
Adiponectin is a hormone with well-known relevance to cardiac and renal function. As Fabry disease (FD), a rare metabolic disorder, often manifests with cardiac and/or renal symptoms, researchers at CENTOGENE examined a potential link to adiponectin. Their finding of plasma adiponectin levels to…
Hereditary angioedema is a rare inherited disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of the accumulation of fluids outside of the blood vessels, blocking the normal flow of blood or lymphatic fluid and causing rapid swelling of tissues in the hands, feet, limbs, face, intestinal tract, or airway.…
Fabry disease is a progressive, inherited, multisystemic lysosomal storage disease character-ized by specific neurological, cutaneous, renal, cardiovascular, cochleo-vestibular and cere-brovascular manifestations. Annual incidence is reported to be 1 in 80,000 live births but this figure may…
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.
