Specialties and Reporting

All Genetic Disorders, Whole Exome Sequencing

- Sequencing and MLPA (deletions/duplications) of individual genes

- Genetic panels where  multiple genes associated with a disease/syndrome are sequenced

- Whole Exome Sequencing: This method is very useful to identify mutations in single genes that cause rare genetic diseases. The coding regions of all genes are covered instead of just focusing on one or a few genes. Approximately 85% of known pathogenic mutations are found in these regions of the genes.

- Microarray Diagnostics :  Genomic imbalance and DNA copy number variation are major causes of developmental disorders. In this test the patient’s entire genome is compared to the genomes of healthy control subjects.

- Karyotyping (Chromosome)

Genetic Testing and Panels

Genetic testing is most often done to confirm the diagnosis of a syndrome or disease, which is known to be caused by a genetic alteration.

Whole Exome Sequencing (WES)

Exome analysis is based on next-generation sequencing (NGS), and is used to identify variants in single genes that cause rare genetic diseases.

Endocrinology

Endocrine system is a collection of glands in the human body such as pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pancreatic, ovaries (females) and testes (males) that collectively regulate metabolism, growth, development, tissue function, reproduction, fertility, mood and many other vital functions.

Food Intolerance

Food Intolerance (Delayed IgG Food Allergy, type III)

There are many reasons why certain foods might not be well tolerated, causing symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, headaches, or skin problems. One possible cause is an IgG food allergy (type III). These delayed allergies can cause low-grade inflammatory conditions, which in turn are thought to be possible triggers of different chronic diseases.

- Respiratory and gastrointestinal panels

Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

There are various types of the human Papillomavirus and most types are transmitted sexually. Many of these do not show symptoms, do not cause disease and disappear after 1-2 years. Of the types of HPV, some carry a high oncogenic risk, others a low oncogenic risk. Some of the high-risk HPV types (HR-HPV) may progress to pre-cancerous lesions and invasive cancer.

Inherited Metabolic Disorders

- Newborn screening using filter cards (36-72 hours after birth)

- Metabolic screening for babies older than 1 month also using filter cards

- Amino acid (blood, urine) and organic acid (urine) screening

- Lysosomal storage disease testing

 

Metabolic Screening Tests/Metabolic Genetic Disorders

Metabolic Disorders or Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) are genetic conditions which result in an inability of the cells of the body to perform certain functions such as breaking down food, making energy, or clearing toxic byproducts. These are most common in newborns and infants, however they can also be found in adults.

Non Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT)

 

- neoBona test (NIPT) starting from gestational week 10

- First Trimester risk calculation for trisomies 21, 13, 18 (gestational weeks 11-14)

- Second Trimester risk calculation (Triple Test, Quadruple Test) for trisomies 21, 13, 18 and NTD (gestational weeks 14-18)

 

NIPT – neoBona Test

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) analyzes cell-free DNA from the fetus circulating in the pregnant mother’s blood. This is a prenatal screening test for Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and two other common fetal chromosomal abnormalities (trisomies 18 and 13). Also, testing for X and Y chromosomes is possible upon request.

First & Second Trimester Risk Calculations

Freiburg Medical Laboratory offers the First Trimester Screening (FTS) as a non-invasive pregnancy evaluation, performed at 11+0 – 13+6 week. The screening involves a combination of ultrasonographic measurement of nuchal translucency (NT) and biochemical analysis of maternal serum levels of two pregnancy-related proteins: free beta-hCG (beta-human chorionic gonadotropin) and PAPP-A (Pregnancy Associated Plasma Protein-A). Please note that numerous studies have revealed that the first trimester screening is far more sensitive for detecting Down syndrome than the second trimester screening (Triple test).

Obesity

Obesity is defined as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or more. BMI is a widely accepted indicator of obesity worldwide. However, it does not distinguish between excess muscle, bone mass or amount of fat and its distribution. There is a high prevalence of overweight and obesity (43.0 and 32.3%, respectively) amongst expatriates in UAE (1).
