Navigenics(TM) Launches Health Compass Service, a Personal Genetic Assessment for Optimal Health
Date:4/8/2008

00 published studies correlating genes to diseases and other common human traits. Navigenics' science team scours those publications - including scientific journals such as Science, Nature, and the New England Journal of Medicine - to include in each analysis only studies of the highest quality. Navigenics' team, including medical writers, genetic counselors and clinicians, then assures that each condition is either preventable or can significantly benefit from early detection and treatment. The company provides that information for its members so they have a clear focus on what matters most for their health.

Genetic Health Showcase

Navigenics is launching the Navigenics Health Compass service with a health and wellness showcase from April 8-17 at 76 Greene St. in Manhattan's SoHo district. Members of the public are invited to learn about the new era of personalized medicine, genetics and prevention through seminars, panel discussions and other events designed to bring the power of genetics from the laboratory into real life. Visitors to the showcase will have the opportunity to speak with genetic counselors, physicians and company representatives to learn more about the service.

"Navigenics Health Compass brings genetics to mainstream health care by giving individuals the information in their DNA to actively maintain and improve their health," said Navigenics board member John Doerr. "Tomorrow is too late to start thinking about prevention. Navigenics gives you the personal genetic information to truly know thyself."

How the Navigenics Health Compass Works

The Navigenics Health Compass starts with a whole-genome scan derived from a simple saliva sample. At a specialized lab, an individual's genetic material is scanned for markers associated with risk for developing conditions such as colon cancer, heart attack, obesity and glaucoma. The Navigenics Health Compass guarantees results for 100 percent of the genetic markers analyzed. O
