Autoimmune disease is a pathological state arising when your immune system, which defends your body against disease, decides your healthy cells are foreign. Autoimmune disease affects up to 50 million Americans and runs in families. Our autoimmunity genetic test is designed to assess your and your family’s genetic risk for developing autoimmune diseases.
Recent advances in human genetics has shaped our understanding of the genetic basis for autoimmune diseases. Current studies have demonstrated that some genetic risk factors for autoimmunity are shared between diseases, and that others are specific to a particular disease or ancestral background.
Our autoimmunity test is designed to assess your and your family’s genetic risk for developing Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel disease (Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis), Systemic Lupus Erythrematosus, Celiac Sprue disease, Vitiligo, Addison’s disease, Reactive arthritis and Multiple sclerosis.
