Disease Risk Update

At Lumigenix we’re committed to regularly updating our customer’s results to reflect the most up-to-date genomic research.

We have recently updated our disease risk predictions to provide estimated lifetime risk for an additional 13 conditions. The updated conditions are:

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma
  • Cerebral Aneurysm
  • Diffuse-type Gastric Cancer
  • Endometriosis
  • Glioma
  • Gout
  • Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy
  • Melanoma
  • Parkinson’s Disease,
  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, and
  • Type 2 Diabetes.

This update means that all conditions with our highest evidence rating include lifetime and relative risks.

In addition to this change we also updated disease association data for Asthma, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Type-2 Diabetes.

If you are an existing customer, you will see these conditions updated when you next login.
