Risk Assessment for inflammatory joint diseases.
The Joint Sensor analyzes the personal risk for inflammatory joint diseases and provides recommendations for prevention. Inflamed joints can cause major problems, and many inflammatory joint diseases can manifest themselves at a young age, greatly affecting the quality of life of those affected.
In severe cases, there may be a gradual restriction of mobility leading to physical disabilities. Since most joint inflammation diseases are unfortunately incurable, early diagnosis is particularly important.
Genetic predisposition for inflammatory joint diseases
Joint inflammation is caused by a misguided immune response. The immune system mistakenly considers parts of the joint to be harmful and begins to fight against them. Our genetic predisposition largely determines how high our risk is for developing inflammatory joint diseases. Therefore, an analysis of relevant genes in this regard can help assess risks as early as possible and counteract them in a timely manner.
How does our Joint Sensor work?
With our Joint Sensor, our laboratory examines the saliva sample for the two genetic variations that can contribute to joint inflammation. We also check the influence of the genetic profile on the tolerability and efficacy of 56 common medications.
This genetic test enables us to determine how likely the development of inflammatory joint diseases is and whether appropriate preventive measures are necessary. We analyze the results in a clear report that also provides individual recommendations for action.
In this context, our Joint Sensor can contribute valuable information for early detection and support genetically predisposed patients in effective prevention.
