GENETIC TESTING: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Genetic Testing essentially unboxes the mystery of our DNA. The human body is made of several trillions of cells and is made up of thousands of genes. It often plays an important role in overall health too. As a result, genetic research plays an important role in detection, prevention and/or treatment of diseases which are caused by genetic abnormalities and mutations.

GENETIC INDUSTRIES IN INDIA - HOT AND GROWING

An Analysis predicts that the global genetic industry is going to grow at a CAGR of 9.65% from 2014-2019. Some of the major segments like pharmacogenomics, diagnostic testing and personal genomics are expected to make most contributions to the revenue of the overall market in upcoming years.

AN EXPLOSION OF KNOWLEDGE: MULTIPLEXED INTERVENTIONAL GENOMICS

Discovery biology, pre-genomics, followed a linear path: develop a hypothesis, design an experiment and carefully control variables, one at a time, to prove or disprove the hypothesis. 
The challenge with this “classical” approach is not only the “one step after another” pace, but the fact that the formation of a hypothesis is limited by our current knowledge and imagination. 

WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY 2019 SPECIAL

Pranav Anam, Founder, The Gene Box opines, ”When it comes to mental health, India is facing a serious crisis. According to the findings of World Health Organisation, it has been estimated that 56 million people suffer from depression and 38 million from anxiety disorders in our country. It has also been found that one of the prominent reasons behind student suicides in India are mental illnesses. 

MY HEART YOUR HEART- CELEBRATING WORLD HEART DAY 2019

Back in 2012, world leaders committed to reducing global mortality from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by 25% by 2025. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is accountable for nearly half of all NCD deaths making it the world’s number one killer. World Heart Day, celebrated on 29 September, is the perfect platform for the CVD community to unite in the fight against CVD and reduce the global disease burden.

GENE BOX LOOKS AT NUTRIGENOMICS REVOLUTINIZING WELLNESS INDUSTRY

Nutrigenomics, the science of understanding the relation of food and nutrition with genetic constitution, is poised to play a pivotal role in nutritional services to promote a healthy balance of the mind and body resulting in overall well-being. Nutrigenomics is the science that studies the interaction between food and genetics which has paved the way for meaningful personalization and faster adoption of nutrition services and can propel the Indian wellness segment to a trillion-dollar industry, Pranav Anam, Founder, The Gene Box, says. Nutrigenomics is a deep science

NUTRIGENOMICS CAN PROPEL WELLNESS TO A TRILLION-DOLLAR INDUSTRY BY PERSONALISING SERVICES: PRANAV ANAM

BOOTSTRAPPED STARTUP THE GENE BOX AIMS TO ANALYSE WELLNESS PARAMETERS THROUGH GENOMICS

TGB collects blood or saliva samples to analyse DNA. The individual DNA is subject to genotyping through DNA microarray technology which gives the team individual raw data. This data is fed into an algorithm that yields a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative report with just a click. The Gene Box analyses over 700,000 data points from raw data with actionable recommendations on various health parameters. 

ONLY 3ML BLOOD CAN TELL YOUR INHERENT RISKS, TAILOR YOUR HEALTHCARE NEEDS

Since 1990, the share of non-communicable diseases in India has increased to 55 per cent, led by cardiovascular diseases (CVD), diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases, mental health and neurological disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Most of these diseases develop due to unhealthy lifestyle and genetic predisposition. According to Pranav Anam, Founder, The Gene Box (TGB), a sample of merely 3ml blood can empower you

AYUSHMAN BHARAT : EXPERTS MIFFED OVER LOW RATES

While NITI Aayog clearly stated that more private participation is desperately needed in smaller towns to run the PMJAY program efficiently, the Indian Medical Association has expressed dissatisfaction at the revised rates of packages, saying participation in the scheme was still not viable for private hospitals.

WHY BALANCING YOUR CORTISOL LEVELS COULD BE THE KEY TO BETTER HEALTH AND HAPPIER SKIN

A busy day at work, a painful commute or a long evening out can leave you feeling drained, sick and upset. What gives? Microstressors such as these directly affects the level of cortisol in your body, which can cause fatigue and exhaustion. “Cortisol is a corticosteroid hormone secreted by the adrenal gland, which controls blood sugar levels, regulates metabolism, helps reduce inflammation, and assists with memory formulation.

ANSWER TO SKIN PROBLEMS IS IN THE GENES

As a tropical country, Indian skin is likely to be dark due to greater exposure to sun rays and ultraviolet radiation. What few may know is that genes have a major role to play in developing such attributes. Skin colour or pigmentation in human beings ranges from dark brown to pale white, and depends on the level of melanin. Pheomelanin causes reddish yellow pigments, while eumelanin gives deep brown colour to the skin

BUDGET 2020: MORE MEDICAL COLLEGES, INVESTMENTS FOR GENE POOLING; WHAT HEALTH SECTOR EXPECTS FROM BUDGET

Budget 2020-21: With Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman soon to announce the union budget, India’s health sector looks forward to better allocations for healthcare. Industry experts are of belief that increased spending in healthcare was one of the crucial areas that the government left unaddressed in last year’s budget. Despite pulling Ayushman Bharat in the government’s top agendas, there was no other major policy in the healthcare sector.

ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस: जानिए बेहद नाजुक कैसे हो जाती हैं हड्डियां

जनेटिसिस्ट प्रणव अनम बताते हैं कि सिर्फ आहार में पोषकों की कमी ही ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस की वजह नहीं होती. ये बीमारी माता-पिता से विरासत में भी मिल सकती है. उनके मुताबिक ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस के शिकार लोगों की पहचान करने में प्रिडिक्टिव जेनेटिक एनालिसिस महत्वपूर्ण हो सकती है और इससे ये निर्धारित करने में भी मदद मिल सकती है कि कोई उपचार कितना प्रभावी हो सकता है. जैसे अगर कोई लैक्टोज इंटॉलरेंट है और कैल्शियम को अवशोषित करने की दर कम है, तो व्यक्ति में बोन लॉस और ऑस्टियोपोरोटिक प्रवृत्तियों से निपटने के उपाय कम जोखिम वाले व्यक्ति से अलग होंगे.

मानसिक बीमारियों में डॉक्टर की बजाए तांत्रिक के पास जाते हैं 44 प्रतिशत लोग: सर्वे

मानसिक स्वास्थ्य खराब होने पर आज भी 44 फीसदी लोग डॉक्टर से संपर्क करने की बजाए तांत्रिकों या बाबाओं के पास जाना पसंद करते हैं। उन्हें लगता है कि इसका इलाज तांत्रिक के पास ही है। मानसिक स्वास्थ्य के प्रति लोगों की सोच आज भी जस की तस बनी हुई है। एक सर्वे से पता चला है कि 43 पर्सेंट लोग ही मानसिक बीमारियों को बीमारी समझते हैं और इलाज के लिए अस्पताल जाने की बात महसूस करते हैं। सर्वे के मुताबिक मानसिक बीमारियों के इलाज के लिए ज्यादातर लोगों के आसपास किसी तरह का कोई सेंटर नहीं हैं। 26 प्रतिशत लोगों को इलाज के लिए 50 किलोमीटर दूर तक जाना पड़ता है।
