Industry Overview
Medical genetics is a medical subspecialty that deals with diseases at the level of the inherited basic contents in human cells. Main rule for genetics is explaining complains including signs and symptoms to the basic changes in the nucleus (genetic contents including Chromosomes and DNA) of human cells. Medical genetics is very unique and in the last few years it has grabbed the international attention after the progress in treating and prophylaxis of genetic diseases. After a great number of studies and experiments scientists found two methods of treating, first one was “Gene Therapy” they tested it on animals and it worked properly but unfortunately it was not a success when shifted to humans. As for the second method, it is called “Replacement Therapy” it has proven its efficiency and it’s being used nowadays.

It is said that “If you do not have proper treatment you should think about early detection” that is one of the main benefits of Genetic testing and it is very clear in Breast cancer, as females could early detect if they are carriers to the breast cancer gene or not. Also, you can detect early diseases in pregnancy, although they were some religious opinions regarding this issue but as long as the results are before 120 days there is no problem. Another benefit is that it offers reassurance and relieves some worried people who consider cytogenetic very important in Leukemia cases (blood cancer) cases because, It helps in confirming the diagnosis, and It helps in knowing the prognostic value if its aggressive, mild, or moderate, it also helps in specifying the treatment.
