Project Proposal


Title: Genetic microchips for preventive diagnostics of hereditary susceptibility to cardiovascular diseases

Type Details: A Research organization from Tomsk has developed a method to evaluate the risk of VD development. The method is based on genetic testing of hereditary susceptibility (the data on genotypes analysis by 32 points ( single nucleotide polymorphous variants) in a person's genome ) and an algorithm of genomic diagnostics of hereditary susceptibility. The proposed method allows to evaluate an individual patient's risk of VD developement (hypertension, ischemic heart disease , aortic ventricle hypertrophy, metabolic syndrome, thromboses). Recommendations on disease prevention are possible under the received results. If disease is already developed, genetic testing may provide additional data to adjust therapeutic and diagnostic procedures.
The solution suggested by the Tomsk research organization is the genetic test consisting of:
1. The biochip, which includes 32 genomic markers, dealing with cardiovascular diseases,
2. The diagnosing algorithm based on genomic diagnostics of the hereditary susceptibility.
The special feature of solution is the large number of genomic markers (32), including both well-known markers, and the markers identified during fundamental scientific research. Data set extension on markers is further possible as more functionally important genetic polymorphisms will be identified.
