Island story

The progress of person’s genetics is opening new possibilities for more individual approach to the supporting of health and to preventive measures and treatment of illnesses.

Genetic and genomic researches together with the results of the project about the research of the human genome gave the new evidence about the deposit of hereditary predisposition to the risk of the illnesses’ development. There were discovered several gene locuses and genes which are correlated with the development of such illnesses like osteoarthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and other.
