Medical (clinical) genetics

Medical genetics studies the role of heredity in human pathology, patterns of transmission from generation to generation to hereditary diseases, develops methods for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of hereditary pathology, including diseases with hereditary predisposition.

American and European scientists not only successfully apply the achievements of medical genetics to solve clinical problems of patients suffering from genetic diseases. They also have the ability to accurately diagnose a severe disease, prevent the birth of sick offspring, and most importantly - they are able to maximally socialize people with special needs, improve their quality of life qualitatively.

A number of rare genetic diseases such as Down syndrome, Shereshevsky-Turner's disease, Kleinfelter's disease, cystic fibrosis, hemophilia, Duchenne's myodystrophy, imperfect osteogenesis, ichthyosis, Reye syndrome, Angelmann syndrome, Praderra-Willi syndrome, Gaucher disease, Wilson's disease, Patau syndrome, Edwards syndrome, Rett syndrome are thoroughly investigated by genetic scientists, professors, doctors of sciences, biologists and microbiologists.

Recently, the number of people diagnosed with autism is growing. In general, it is still too early to talk about the epidemic of this disease, but nevertheless the statistics for today are disappointing. Autism is a serious, genetically conditioned mental disorder, in fact, an extreme form of self-isolation. This pathology is formed by the lagging behind the formation of speech skills, the presence of a set of stereotyped habits and expressed problems in communicating with others.

Modern diagnosis of autism allows you to begin to fight the disease before it is firmly rooted in the psyche of the child and will move into an incurable stage. The sooner appropriate medical care is provided, the more chances of success.

Great success in the treatment of autism has been achieved by world experts. Thanks to the experience they accumulated and the use of the newest effective methods, they cope even with the most neglected cases. For each patient an individual program of corrective work is compiled, including all methods of treatment and survey methods necessary to ensure maximum positive results, including:

  • Inspection of qualified specialists
  • Electroencephalography performed during sleep
  • The detailed blood tests (general, biochemical, determination of antibodies to gliadin, levels of vitamins B 12 and B 9, amino acids, etc.)
  • Genetic examination for X chromosome scrapping syndrome
  • Cytogenetic microarray analysis
  • Urinalysis at the level of metabolites
  • Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging of the brain (with and without contrast)
  • Skin biopsy (for the analysis of fibroblasts, etc.)

Treatment of autism abroad is done through the use of methods such as:

- Sensory integration

- psychotherapy

- оccupational therapy

- coaching (coaching) - a way of speech improvement of a person

- teach-system

- applied behavior analysis (PAP method)

Unfortunately, to date, it is not yet possible to get rid of this disease 100%, but the world's leading experts are making every effort to help their patients and maintain a balanced state in the process of treatment and rehabilitation.

We closely follow the achievements of scientists in the field of medical genetics and are always ready to advise leading American and European clinics that can effectively rehabilitate patients with severe congenital diseases.
