COVID-19 Risk

The new Veritas’ COVID-19 Risk panel is a genetic test that determines your risk for developing medical complications associated with a COVID-19 infection.

The test is based in whole exome sequencing (WES) to analyze 153 genes related to medical complications related to COVID-19 infections.

As a genetic test, it requires a medical prescription that can be provided by your personal physician or the Veritas’ medical team. If you would like to utilize this service please contact us and a member of our team will evaluate your case and prescribe the appropriate test for you.

DNA Test for COVID-19 Risk

Scientific progress allowed the identification of genetic factors related to severe forms of COVID‐19, the study of which may help the physician to adapt the clinical management of the patient in the event of COVID‐19.

These factors are generally related to other pathologies that the patient presents but may not have fully developed and increase the risk of complications if the individual presents a SARS‐CoV‐2 infection. These findings may indicate potential medical complications, allowing the specialist to anticipate patient management to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with COVID‐19.

Why is it important?

If you have a pathogenic variant in the genes included in the panel your risk of medical complications associated with COVID-19 infection increases.

This test allows the physician to anticipate patient management to reduce the morbidity and mortality in the event of COVID-19.

Who is it for?

COVID-19 Risk is a genetic analysis designed for anyone 18 years and older wants to know their vulnerability to a severe acute respiratory syndrome virus type-2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.

What will you receive?

A complete report that provides your results of the interpretation of the 153 analyzed in the COVID-19 Risk study.

The genes analyzed are related to different clinical conditions:

  • Conditions associated with an increased susceptibility to medications commonly used in managing COVID‐19 and respiratory failure.
  • Conditions that cause reversible metabolic or thrombotic crises that are often induced by severe illnesses such as COVID‐19.
  • Conditions that cause reversible cardiopulmonary complications that can be exacerbated during severe illnesses such as COVID‐19.
  • Immune system disorders related to the production of type I Interferon (IFN) that may increase the risk of severe pneumonia in case of COVID‐19.
