Germline (Inherited) Cancer Risk
Use DNA sequencing to shed light on hereditary gene mutations and help individuals take precautionary steps to manage their risk or developing cancer in the future.
LumiRISKTM is a multi-cancer test that detects 28 genes commonly associated with increased risk of cancer.
Cancer risk assessment identifies individuals with a higher-than-average risk of developing cancer due to their genes inherited through their family.。
LumiRISKTM tests for a panel of 28 genes through a standard blood sample.
Indication - Cancer Risk Assessment across:
LumiRISKTMis a multi-cancer risk assessment test that detects mutations in a panel of 28 genes commonly associated with increased cancer risks.
Having a gene mutation does not indicate the presence of cancer.
But it does mean you can do something about it.
Focus on hereditable cancers - that can be passed from parent to child.
Clinically significant based on studies.
Identified mutations will indicate higer cancer risks than general population.
LumiRISK is not a test for the presence of cancer, but is a test to help understand if you have inherited a genetic mutation, which may increase your chances of developing cancer in your lifetime.
If your LumiRISK result comes back as showing that you have inherited a genetic mutation, the most important thing to remember is that this does not mean that you will definitely develop cancer in the future.
What it does mean, however, is that you have just given yourself the ability to work with a medical professional to develop a tailored screening programme with a dedicated focus on the risk that you have uncovered. By illuminating the risk, you give yourself the ability to develop a medical and screening strategy to combat the potential risk.
Cancer is caused by errors (called mutations) in our genes. Genes control how cell in our body divide and grow.
inherited cancers are cancers that run in the family. Such cancers occur when one gene mutation is passed from one genereation to another.
Many people know of one or serveral relatives with cancer. Most of these are related to age or lifestyle facetors such as smoking.
Genetic testing can assist doctors to estimate your lifetime risk for cancer. These tests are done by drawing a small amount of blood. The test analyses your genes to help:
Genetic testing can help doctors to give you a more accurate assessment. However, having risks for inherited cancer does not mean cancer.
