Regarding Clinical Results:
For the health portion of your results where we test for genetic risk factors that may be medically relevant to your health, results are only delivered to participants who are discovered to have a clinical variant for the conditions we are currently testing for, and have consented to be contacted regarding those results. The conditions we are currently testing for include Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome, Lynch Syndrome, and Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH). Results for these conditions can take up to 6 months to be generated, and you will be contacted directly by a genetics professional from Genome Medical about any positive findings if one is identified. As our research expands to other conditions, your genetic information will continue to be screened for any genetic variants that may affect your health, and you will be contacted directly regarding any results that are relevant to your health.
If we do not detect a clinical concern, your genetic information is kept de-identified and secure in our research database to protect your privacy. If you did not hear back from us that simply means that the researchers did not find a genetic variant for those specific health risks we are testing for to date. In other words, no news is good news!
