WHAT IS A RECESSIVE GENETIC DISORDER?
  • Patients are carriers of both copies of the genetic mutation or male carriers of the mutated gene on the sex chromosome. These people have typical clinical manifestations.
  • Carriers are those who carry one copy of the mutated gene and are typically asymptomatic or have mild symptoms.
  • A recessive genetic disorder is a disease caused by genetic mutation. Both parents must be carriers of the mutated gene to pass it on to their children.

What if both parents are carriers?

Children with an autosomal recessive disorder manifest symptoms when they inherit both copies of a mutated gene from their parents.

If parents are carriers of a recessive genetic disorder, each child may have a 25% chance of having this recessive genetic disorder.

AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE INHERITANCE PATTERN

Even if the mother or father does not manifest symptoms, their children are still at risk of having a recessive genetic disorder.

Benefits of triSure NIPT

Early screening of recessive genetic disorders in parents or pregnant women

  • Determine whether mother/father is a carrier. Nine investigated diseases have a high prevalence but are easily overlooked by conventional screening methods.​

Assess the possibility of disease inheritance to children

  • Children with an autosomal recessive disorder manifest symptoms when they inherit both copies of the mutated gene from their parents.​

Free testing for mother/father and children

  • Support one free test for mutated gene in father/mother/child if the test participant has a positive result (in case of a positive result for G6PD deficiency, we don’t perform the test for the father, only for the newborn).​

Provide women with options to give birth safely

  • Assist parents in making proactive choices regarding assisted reproductive techniques in order to eradicate disease-causing genes for the next generation.​
  • Artificial insemination (IVF) or early prenatal diagnosis (amniocentesis).​

Equip doctors with information regarding early intervention after birth

  • Early diagnosis of common recessive genetic diseases of newborns for timely and effective treatment, reducing the risk of complications, and helping your children lead a normal life.

Who should take the triSure Carrier test?

Prenatal screening for pregnant women.

Parents are preparing for IVF (a screening gene test).

Those planning to marry should have premarital latent disease screening to determine the best possible pregnancy plan.

Still have questions?
Connect with a geneticist

No one has to travel on the path to being healthy alone. Before and after a genetic test, the physician and geneticist are always available to provide accurate, responsible results; collaborating with clinical physicians to determine the optimal monitoring and intervention measures.
