CTL offers two tests
- We use the latest science and technology to give you a snapshot of your genome,
revealing your genetic predisposition for important health conditions and empowering
you with knowledge to make more informed choices.
The predictive power of DNA is real
The concept of our genetic test is to look into your DNA and to identify key markers
that, if present, may cause you to be predisposed to serious diseases listed below.
By ordering this test your physician will be able, in a sense, to take a look into your
own future and take the necessary steps to help avoid the conditions altogether.
Our DNA Predisposition Test covers these conditions...
- Immune System
- Cardiovascular Conditions
- Plavix (clopidogrel) is a very effective medication for preventing clot-related
events such as heart attacks or strokes.
The Plavix DNA test requires only a cheek swab sample to obtain your DNA. The test
analyzes the CYP2C19 gene and looks for variations. This can predict your body's
ability to process Plavix (clopidogrel) in order to produce the desired effect.
Your test results will help you and your physician understand interactions between
all of the medicines, herbals and over the counter medicines you take. They can also
aid your physician in making decisions about altering the dosage or form of drugs
prescribed to you to prevent interference with Plavix (clopidogrel) effectiveness
and other adverse drug reactions.
