Suggested target group: Patients who want to identify the risk of their Cardiac diseases.
It has been known that almost every disease is influenced, caused, regulated, or modulated by our genes, as is our body’s responses to environmental factors such as diet, drugs, carcinogens, and others. Mygenia Cardiac Disease Risk Assessment provides strikingly precise answers for many conditions that are otherwise almost impossible for you to know in advance.
With the raising awareness of cardiac diseases, everyone would like to recognize their health conditions and cultivate personal health life planning. Do you know some of the death-warrant diseases and over one-third of sudden cardiac failure with unknown reasons might be caused by related genes.
Our Mygenia CARDIAC diseases panel, using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology, screens for the pathogenic mutations in the diseases related genes for identifying the risks in patients’ health conditions.
Cardiac death is dangerous and silent
NO SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS
When it happens, it can claim a person’s life immediately without having enough time to react.
CAN OCCUR IN MOST HEALTHY BEINGS
There are cases of SCD occurring in young and healthy adults, even children
SIMILAR TO MUSCLE PAIN
Heart attack is often misinterpreted as minor muscle pain
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
We help to identify the risk of inherited genetic disorders, so you can prepare and protect yourself for the future.
Extensive screening for more than 2700 genes (Avoid for heart attack to death)
CARDIAC diseases are often misunderstood to be happening on elderly only. Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) are genetic heart conditions that can cause sudden death in young and healthy people. These conditions can be treated and deaths can be prevented. It is highly recommended to have a screening guided by doctors.
Mygenia CARDIAC Diseases Panel covers
Brugada Syndrome is one of the hereditary cardiac diseases. It caused on polymorphic ventricular tachycardia pattern. Symptoms : seizures, unexplained nighttime urination, strange breathing, cardiac failure or sudden death.
Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) is a disturbance of the heart’s electrical system. It is caused by abnormalities of microscopic pores in the heart cells called ion channels. Symptoms : often occurs during or just after physical exertion, emotional excitement or sudden auditory arousal.
Short QT Syndrome (SQTS) is a genetic heart hereditary abnormality. It does not itself cause any symptoms, but it can lead to two different types of rhythm disturbance (1) Atrial fibrillation (2) Ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation. The second type is a much serious problem, which can lead to sudden cardiac death.
While the electric current passes over the heart of patients, abnormalities of electrical condition occurs. Electric current will pass through the accessory pathway. The cause of WPW syndrome is not known, but it may increase the risk of sudden cardiac death.
Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC)
The right ventricular myocardium was passed on fat and fibrous structure, it leads to ventricular arrhythmias as major symptoms of inherited cardiomyopathy. Heart failure or sudden cardiac death may occur in serious patients.

Are you really as healthy as you think?
You may look healthy and fine today that serious diseases seem to be far away from you. However, have you ever thought that threatening diseases are lurking deep within your body?
Genes inherited from the previous generation, not only will affect your physical appearance, but also secretly buried a lot of risk factors for your health status.Nowadays scientific researches confirmed that many diseases are actually related to your genes, such as cancer and sudden death caused by heart diseases.
However, the incidence of genetic diseases can actually be effectively reduced by proper precautions. An early understanding of your own genes can keep you away from genetic diseases.
Who should be assessed?
Pangenia recommends that all people should be assessed, especially those with family history of genetic diseases. People who worry that they will suffer from genetic diseases should carry out a comprehensive health assessment of the genes. Genetic diseases are often hidden, but they can trigger life-threatening situations in a sudden. Therefore, you are advised to take preventive measures early to understand your genetic status.
What is Mygenia ONE? Is it reliable?
The Mygenia ONE Health Risk Assessment examines the state of genes associated with inherited diseases in your blood sample using a new generation of gene sequencing technology.
Pangenia professional team looks at your genetic information and refers to an internationally recognized gene database to determine if your gene has pathogenic variations and report to you.
Mygenia ONE uses the most advanced new-generation gene sequencer in Hong Kong to process the test for you. The PANGENIA scientific team is trustworthy that 30 % of the professionals have a doctorate in addition to the medical laboratory technician recognized qualifications.
What will I get after the test?
After detailed analysis of the relevant genes, Pangenia team of professional laboratory technicians will report your gene profile based on the latest gene database, and list out the relationship between the gene variations and the related diseases. Your doctor can help you choose the most appropriate precautions.
How long is my report valid?
Genetic variations remain unchanged throughout your lifetime. In addition, we will provide you with a report review service to ensure the maximum protection for you. As long as you have received a Mygenia ONE health risk assessment, you can apply for periodic updates to your report. Our scientific team will update you on the latest information about the diseases and the corresponding genes in the genetic database. As a result, your reports will continue to be valid.
How should I conduct the test?
Please contact and consult your doctor first. Your doctor will take 6 ml of blood, along with the completed test application form and then send it to PANGENIA's laboratory for testing. You will receive your report within 6 weeks.
Cardiac Health Risk Assessment
Why do I need a heart disease risk assessment?
Heart disease is a disease of great concern to society today. Everyone wants to know more about their risk and plan a healthy lifestyle. But do you know that some of the fatal heart diseases are closely related to our genes? For example, more than 30% of unexplained sudden death cases are caused by gene mutations related to heart diseases.
How does a heart disease risk assessment help me?
People often misunderstand that heart diseases only happen in elderlies, but sudden cardiac arrhythmia death syndrome (SADS) is a hereditary arrhythmia. Even people who appear young and health may suddenly suffer a cardiac arrest. However, this disease is preventable, but one must first understand their own physical conditions, so that doctors can make appropriate recommendations.
Mygenia CARDIAC Heart Disease Health Risk Assessment Coverage includes the following most common diseases:
- Brugada Syndrome is a genetic disease that is characterized by abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) findings. It may result in sudden death.
- Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is due to cardiac current system disorders caused by abnormal myocardial cells. The symptoms occurs during heavy exercise, emotional stress or when being frightened. It may lead to sudden death.
- Short QT syndrome (SQTS) is a genetic heart abnormality. The disease itself does not have any symptoms, but can cause two types of rhythm disorders: (1) atrial fibrillation. (2) ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. The second category is more serious and can lead to sudden death.
- Wolff Parkinson's Ward's syndrome (WPW) involves abnormal electrical conduction. The current is conducted through the non-primary path. There is no apparent symptom, but it may increase the risk of sudden death.
- Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) happens when right ventricular myocardial gradually replaced by fat and fibrous tissue, followed by ventricular arrhythmia as the main feature of hereditary cardiomyopathy. There may be severe heart failure or sudden death.
- And many other cardiac diseases not mentioned above.
