Important Gene Variants Influencing Immune Responses Related to Autoimmunity
Genomic studies have identified a number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that are associated with risk for autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. Many of these SNPs contribute to individual differences in immune responses. Important examples will be highlighted, with a focus on how these SNPs help shed light on the underlying processes involved in autoimmune and inflammatory disorders.
Immune-related SNPs can be assessed in patients using Diagnostic Solution Laboratory's advanced DNA testing solution, GenomicInsight™. By assessing a patient’s individual genomic profile, clinicians can develop more personalized therapeutic approaches for their patients.
