  • Publication number: 20080275912
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a computer assisted method of providing a personalized assessment of supplement requirements for a human subject in which an individual's genotype is analysed for the presence of alleles at one or more genetic loci which may be associated with risk factors, and the alleles present compared to a first dataset comprising information correlating the presence of individual alleles at genetic loci with a lifestyle risk factor to provide a risk factor associated with the presence of particular alleles in order to generate a personalized assessment of nutritional and therapeutic supplement requirements, which may include a personalized supplementation formula.

  • Publication number: 20030198970
    Abstract: People vary enormously in their response to disease and the also in their response to therapeutic interventions aimed at ameliorating the disease process and progression. However, the provision of medical care and medical management is centered around observations and protocols developed in clinical trials on groups or cohorts of patients. This group data is used to derive a standardised method of treatment which is subsequently applied on an individual basis. There is considerable evidence that a significant factor underlying the individual variability in response to disease, therapy and prognosis lies in a person's genetic make-up. There have been numerous examples relating that polymorphisms within a given gene can alter the functionality of the protein encoded by that gene thus leading to a variable physiological response.

  • Patent number: 5747260
    Abstract: A method of prognosing a head-injured subject or a subject who may be at risk of sustaining a head injury for the likelihood that a head injury might give rise to a chronic neurodegenerative pathology which could result in neuropsychological, psychiatric or neurological deficits, the method comprising detecting the presence or absence of ApoE isoforms or of DNA encoding ApoE isoforms in the subject.
