What is disease vulnerability analysis?
If vulnerability to certain diseases can be predicted with individual genome analysis, prevention of diseases and early detection and response become possible. It can maximize effects and minimize side effects with medicine and treatment prescriptions that consider genetic differences. Genes are a blueprint of our body. Now, check them and start personalized health management.

HelloGene

Introduction to Service

HelloGene is an individual genetic test service that helps with customized health management by predicting diseases. DNA contains information on individual characteristics such as individual differences in the risk of certain diseases or drug effects. Diseases develop through a combination of inherent genetic factors and environmental factors, which are manageable. If you check your genetic characteristics in advance, disease preventive activities, early diagnosis, customized prescription, etc. are possible.

Autoimmune Diseases

Periodontal disease [3 Types]

Periodontal disease
The genetic risk of having periodontal disease before one is in their 50s is predicted by testing three types genes of.
Gene that destroys periodontal disease pathogens (TENM2 Gene)
While the gene destroys periodontal disease pathogens, it cannot destroy them well if the genetic risk is high, and this can increase the risk of periodontal disease.
Inflammatory gene (IL4 gene)
The risk of periodontal disease is increased when an inflammation of the gum lasts long. If there is an inflammatory gene, periodontal inflammation is not removed easily, thereby raising the risk of periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease severity gene (GPR141 Gene)
When one has a genetic variation, the severity of periodontal disease can increase. If the severity of periodontal disease increases, it can extensively damage teeth.
