23andMe and Palomar Pomerado Health Partner to Give PPH Members Access to Their Genetic Information
Date:4/27/2009

e Personal Genome Service provides information about how markers in a person's genome affects his or her propensity for over 100 health conditions and inherited traits, including prostate cancer, Type 2 Diabetes, venous thromboembolism, and cystic fibrosis. The service also provides users with information about their ancestry, allows them to compare their genome to those of family and friends who are also 23andMe participants, and contribute to the advancement of genetic research by participating in 23andMe research studies.

PPH has taken an active role in promoting preventive health care. Because genetics is a major factor in the development of health conditions and diseases, PPH believes that individualized genetic information can help members make more educated lifestyle and healthcare decisions, as well as helping physicians better understand their patients' health. Dr. Jerry Kolins, MD, FACHE, Associate Chief Medical Quality Officer and Medical Director for PPH Laboratories, said, "PPH is in the business of helping our members lead healthier lives. Because genetics significantly impacts a person's risk for developing certain diseases, having access to genetic information can be useful for both patients and physicians in helping to prevent health problems down the road."

23andMe believes that providing genetic information to patients through partnerships such as this will facilitate the future integration of genetic information into medical practice. 23andMe co-founder Linda Avey said, "As more genetic discoveries are made and the clinical impact of these correlations is more fully understood, physicians and patients will be better equipped to incorporate genetic information into health care and lifestyle decisions. PPH recognizes that providing their patients with their genetic information now is the first step on this path to more personalized health care and prevention."
