Molecular detection of pathogens
Acute intestinal infection is one of the most common causes for hospitalization of patients. The pathogens that cause gastroenteritis are viruses from the groups of Rotaviruses, Noroviruses and Astroviruses.
The pathogens of sexually transmitted infections are eliminated after a certain period of time, while others recur, and some remain in the body asymptomatically, allowing the development of sexually transmitted diseases, causing consequences such as inflammation of the urogenital system, infertility, and even development of cancer.
Identification of genetic polymorphisms and other mutations
Farmacogenetics - genotypeization of genes Included in the metabolism of medications
Clopidogrel sold under the brand name Plavix is a widely used antiplatelet agent to treat and prevent a variety of atherothrombotic diseases.
Research has implicated genetic variations in the CYP2C19 isozyme as at least partly responsible for the variable antiplatelet response seen with clopidogrel.
Warfarin is an anticoagulant commonly used to prevent thrombosis and thromboembolism, the formation of blood clots in blood vessels and their migration elsewhere in the body, respectively.
