THROMBO inCode® is a genetic test for the diagnosis of hereditary thrombophilia and for assessing the patient's risk of thrombosis.
Genetics contributes about 50% to the development of a venous thromboembolic event and interacts with several transient factors that can increase the risk of thrombosis. It is therefore important to investigate the thrombophilic profile of patients with a personal and family history of thrombosis in order to tailor their treatment and take preventive measures if necessary.
THROMBO inCode® diagnoses hereditary thrombophilia thanks to its validated panel of genetic variants, and incorporates the patient’s genetic and clinical information into an algorithm to assess their risk of venous thromboembolism, providing results and clinically useful recommendations for therapeutic management.
Genes/variants analysed and technology
- Patients with a personal background of venous thromboembolism
- Patients with a family history of venous thromboembolism who are going to be subjected to prothrombotic risk situations
- Relatives of individuals in whom specific thrombophilic variants have been identified (family study)
THORMBO inCode® has proven to have a greater diagnostic capacity, with a statistically significant difference, in comparison with the Factor V Leiden and Prothrombin variants. It has been recognized as the “gold standard” in publications of reference for thrombosis risk assessment.
In addition to diagnosing hereditary thrombophilia, the algorithm that combines the patient’s genetic information with their clinical factors makes it possible to determine how likely they are to develop a thromboembolism in different risk situations.
