Child Growth Prediction

 

This test screens your child’s DNA for genetic markers across a wide range of genes that are linked to inherited illnesses or conditions. The test indicates if your child is predisposed towards immunological diseases, developmental disorders or other health conditions. With ProGene Child you can be better prepared to manage your child’s health, if necessary.

 



Screening your child’s DNA for the following illness or conditions:

 

- Abnormal QT Interval(Long QT syndrome, LQTS)
- Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
- Allergic Rhinitis
- Asthma
- Atopic Dermatitis (Atopic Eczema)
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Coeliac Disease
- Crohn’s Disease
- Dyslexia
- Early or Late Teething
- Early Speech Impairment
- Epilepsy
- Infantile Hypertrophic Pyloric Stenosis
- Invasive Pneumococcal Disease
- Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
- Kawasaki’s Disease
- Lactose Intolerance
- Meningococcal Disease
- Obesity (childhood onset)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Pathological Myopia
- Permanent Tooth Development
- Restless Legs Syndrome
- Tourette Syndrome
- Ulcerative Colitis

讀寫障礙、專注力失調及過度活躍症基因檢測 (GTADHD / GTDD / GTDDAD)

背景資料

專注力失調及過度活躍症(簡稱︰ADHD)是一種相當普遍的發展及學習障礙,每百名兒童中便有5-7人患有此病,當中以男孩的發病率較高。儘管患者智力正常,卻往往給人留下坐立不定、動過不停、難以自控的負面印象,長遠而言會對學生的學習和日常生活造成影響。ADHD的成因未有完全確定,但研究指出與基因遺傳因素影響腦部發展、多巴胺功能不足有緊密的關係。

除了ADHD,讀寫障礙亦是本港學童的常見問題,約佔5%,成因是由於腦部處理文字閱讀和理解的能力有與生俱來的差異,導致掌握文字的讀音、外形和意義之間的聯繫出現不同程度的困難。這種情形往往有遺傳因素,而且男性比女性的個案為多;這並不代表腦部受損,和ADHD一樣是腦部發展的異常特徵。

及早發現,及時支援,成效更高

針對腦部發展和學習障礙近年相關的研究皆指出早期發現(即在入讀小學前)便接受支援的個案獲得的成效更顯著面對ADHD的個案也是一樣因此美國兒科學會(American Academy of Pediatrics, AAP) 近年已將ADHD的評估年齡範圍擴大至4

基因測試幫助及早辨認有學習障礙的高危學童

由於ADHD和讀寫障礙都有高遺傳性(大概30-60%)除了進行針對家族病史及父母的問卷調查外基因測試是最早能夠發現ADHD和讀寫障礙遺傳風險的途徑近期的研究已找出了與ADHD相關的多巴胺(一種腦內分泌物影響人的情緒)調控基因以及與讀寫障礙相關的促進腦部發展的基因還有針對中文讀寫障礙的基因進一步分析這些基因的分型能夠及早知道評估學童患上ADHD和讀寫障礙的相對風險, 讓父母可以早一點安排評估其專注力文字理解及閱讀能力

 

檢測方法

只需用棉捧在測試者的口腔擦抹,再以不記名形式交由美國國家認可的生物科技化驗所分析

標本種類

口腔拭子

檢測時間

不多於2星期

 

What is Genetic Test

Every child is born with inherent talents. These talents are decided by their genes.
 
Every child's growth and development are different due to his/her unique genes. 
The scientists have successfully discovered the following genes-intelligent, recognition, cogitation, sentiment, aesthetic, concentration, endurance, health and physical fitness.
 
Meanwhile, we can identify the following features through genetic test:

Character
Optimism / Adventure / Perseverance / Shyness / Composure / Split Personality / Hyper Activity / Negative Emotion / Impulsive / Attentiveness / Mould-ability
Emotional Intelligence
Affectionate / Faithfulness / Passion / Precocity / Sentimentality / Sociability / Self Reflection / Self-control
Social Intelligence
Intelligence / Comprehension / Analysis / Memory / Creativity / Reading Ability / Imagination
Art
Performativity / Potential of Music / Potential of Painting / Potential of Dancing / Potential of Literature / Communication Skills
Sport
Endurance / Explosive Force / Sports Skills / Sensitivity / Sport Injury / Sports Psychology
Health Care
Obesity / Sensitivity to Secondhand Smoke
Addictive
Alcoholism / Smoking
Body Development
Height / General wellness

The test method is very simple. Just wipe the tester's mouth with a cotton swab, and then submit it to the Nationally Recognized Biotechnology Laboratory in an anonymous form. The results will be available in about eight weeks.
