Auto Immune and Genetic Diseases Non-Invasive Diagnosis and Therapy

Auto Immune and Genetic Diseases Non-Invasive Diagnosis and Therapy

An inherited medical condition caused by a DNAabnormality.

 

Agenetic disorder is a disease that is caused by a change or mutation in anindividual DNA. There are three types of genetic disorders Single genedisorders, Chromosomal disorders, and Multifactorial disorders.

 

A geneticdisease is any disease that is caused by an abnormality in an individualgenome, the persons entire genetic makeup. The abnormality can range fromminuscule to major, from a discrete mutation in a single base in the DNA of asingle gene to a gross chromosome abnormality involving the addition orsubtraction of an entire chromosome or set of chromosomes. Some geneticdisorders are inherited from the parents, while other genetic diseases arecaused by acquired changes or mutations in a preexisting gene or group ofgenes. Mutations can occur either randomly or due to some environmentalexposure.

 

Predictive testing can identify mutations thatincrease a persons risk of developing disorders with a genetic basis, such ascertain types of cancer.

 

Carrier testing can be used to help couplesto learn if they carry, and thus risk passing to their children, a recessiveallele for genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, andTay Sachs disease.

 

Monogenetic disorders are caused by a mutation ina single gene. The mutation may be present on one or both chromosomes (onechromosome inherited from each parent). Examples of monogenic disorders are:sickle cell disease, cystic fibrosis, polycystic kidney disease, and Tay Sachsdisease.

 

Most commontypes

 

Cystic fibrosis

Aninherited life threatening disorder that damages the lungs and digestivesystem.

 

Down syndrome

Agenetic chromosome 21 disorder causing developmental and intellectual delays.

 

Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Aninherited disorder of progressive muscular weakness, typically in boys.

 

Fragile X syndrome

Agenetic condition causing intellectual disability.

 

Hemophilia

Adisorder in which blood does not clot normally.

 

Huntingtons disease

Aninherited condition in which nerve cells in the brain break down over time.

 

Sickle cell anemia

Agroup of disorders that cause red blood cells to become misshapen and breakdown.

 

Thalassemia

Ablood disorder involving lower than normal amounts of an oxygen carryingprotein.
