Genetics Institute of America (GIA) is a national laboratory dedicated to heightening the awareness of early intervention and genetic screening to promote longevity and quality of life outcomes. Our determination and research allow us to provide Next Generation DNA Sequencing customized testing for identified gene related cancers and other diseases.
Active IRB-Approved Studies
Study GH101 - Genetic Susceptibility to Chronic Disease
The objective of study GH101 is to take an integrative approach to the fields of pharmacogenomics, cancer genomics, mRNA microarrays and nutrigenomics. These disciplines have evolved from the original human genome project but have essentially remained discreet. The integration of these genetic disciplines into a computational model has the potential to increase diagnostic yield and provide a clearer genetic picture to determine actionable events to improve healthcare.
With the use of advanced technology, GH101 is designed to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) associated with development of chronic diseases such as CVD, ESRD, PTSD, and cancers.
Study GH215 - Urine Analysis for Prostate Cancer
The GH215 study is a diagnostic platform that utilizes ‘NuTec signatures’ created by the unbiased binding of molecules from patient urine specimens as a means of detecting diseases in people. This platform has been successfully tested in various clinical proof of concept studies involving urine specimens from donors with and without various cancers and infections.
