What is GenoksTATA?

Individuals who carry the genetic mutation that causes an inherited disease and can pass it on to the next generation and generally do not show the symptoms of that disease are called "carriers". While carriers of one or more inherited diseases often do not experience any problems in their own health, they can transmit the diseases they are carriers to their children.

Every individual can be a carrier of any genetic disease, even if it is not seen in anyone in the family.

Can I Be a Carrier?

Spinal Muscular Atrophy, abbreviated SMA, is a hereditary and progressive muscle disease and is a neuromuscular disease with weakness and wasting of voluntary muscles. Parents of babies with SMA are carriers for this condition, and the risk of SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) for each pregnancy is 25%. SMA carriage is seen in approximately 1 in 50 people in the community.

Cystic Fibrosis is a chronic genetic disease in which the parents are carriers for this disease, causing infections, growth and developmental retardation by affecting the channels in the respiratory system, digestive system and reproductive system since birth. About 1 out of every 25 people is a carrier for Cystic Fibrosis.

Why Is Carrier Scanning Recommended?
Carrier screening provides comprehensive screening of reproductive options for couples before and/or during pregnancy, helping them to anticipate existing risks and enabling them to produce healthy offspring.
