According to BioResolve is offering a detailed DNA test report with a free online calculator.
The aim of BioResolve’s initiative is to reduce the spread of an epidemic by identifying the groups at risk so that they can take special precautions. As notes on BioResolve press release the measures can be as follows: staying at home, maintaining perfect hand hygiene, being alert to early symptoms and getting quick medical attention.
As a DNA test may be required since it can accurately pin-point the specific risks factors that an individual may have, individual’s comparative survival ratio can be determined.
So how the ratio is found?
There is a 2 steps process.
The first step involves a questionnaire, freely available online to anyone.
The second step involves a DNA testing service that looks at key DNA site to evaluate an individual's general immune system quality, potential genetic complication determined by DNA, genetic predispositions to aggravating factors, it's innate resistance or vulnerabilities to a wide range of infectious diseases including; influenza, malaria, HIV resistance, susceptibility to SARS, hepatitis, norovirus resistance, etc.
Alexandre Harvey-Tremblay, President of BioResolve said; "One of the best thing that can be done is to identify groups of individuals that may be at an increased risk of developing severe complications from an infectious disease so that they can take better precautions. If someone has a clear understanding of his risks, he may decide to take extra precautions he may not have chosen to do had he not known about them."
