Genes

Clinical validity

Help

This panel test will provide the likelihood of clinical outcome for tested individuals, and it is primarily determined by the quality of clinical features used to select affected individuals suggested for genetic testing. The likelihood of clinical outcome is affected not only by the presence of the gene mutation in any of the panel genes itself but also by any other modifying factors that might affect the penetrance of the mutation (e.g., the mutation carrier's environmental exposures or personal behaviors) or by the presence or absence of mutations in other genes related to the disease. For this reason, the clinical validity of this particular genetic test for a specific mutation may vary in different populations. For the molecular diagnostic of the disease caused by mutations in any of the panel genes, Centogene is offering hotspot testing, including mutations specific for various world populations, full gene sequencing and deletion/duplication testing for all genes included in the panel, enabling identification of all previously reported mutations, as well as possible detection of other genetical changes.
