DNA Genotek today announced that its Oragene•DNA product is being used by a team of international researchers to further investigate a genetic link to podoconiosis. Podoconiosis is a disease occurring in individuals exposed to red clay soil derived from volcanic rock in tropical Africa, Central America and northwest India.

(PRWEB) October 1, 2009 -- DNA Genotek, a leading provider of products for biological sample collection, today announced that its Oragene•DNA product is being used by a team of international researchers to further investigate a genetic link to podoconiosis. Podoconiosis is a disease occurring in individuals exposed to red clay soil derived from volcanic rock in tropical Africa, Central America and northwest India. Characteristics of the disease include swelling of the foot and lower leg which progresses to elephantiasis, having a severe impact on mobility and quality of life for those affected.

Dr. Melanie Newport, Professor in Infectious Diseases and Global Health, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, UK is co-leading the study aimed at understanding the role of genetics and environmental factors in the development of disease. In order to conduct the research, human DNA samples needed to be collected from residents in Wolaitta Zone, Southern Ethiopia.

Dr. Newport said, "Collecting DNA samples in rural Ethiopia would be a tremendous challenge without Oragene•DNA. The saliva-based product was easy-to-use a
