CLINICAL APPLICATIONS OF TELOMERE TESTING

Telomere testing is a valuable emerging diagnostic tool within the area of functional and preventive/personalized medicine with a number of clinical applications including:

  • As an overall global biomarker of health and the effectivity of programs and treatments designed to optimize healthy aging
  • Early detection of chronic / age-related diseases
  • Stratifying risk
  • Prognosis determination
  • And for tailoring treatments

  • Early detection of chronic / age-related diseases,

Life Length’s telomere test gives you two types of information for managing your patient’s health:

 

1. The distribution of individual telomeres in a sample including the percentage of critically short telomeres,

2. And the rate of telomere attrition when used on a longitudinal basis.

 

Life Length’s TAT® is the only assay that measures over 100,000 individual telomeres chromosome-by-chromosome in tens of thousands of cells in order to provide a comprehensive picture of cellular health. Our extensive, patient-friendly results report is thorough and easy to interpret and understand.

There is now an extensive and continuously growing body of peer-reviewed clinical publications which have demonstrated that short telomeres are a contributing cause to virtually all chronic and age-related diseases including the most prevalent: CVD, Type 2 Diabetes, certain types of cancer, osteoarthritis, major depressive disorders, pulmonary fibrosis, and CNS.

 

We encourage you to take a moment to watch the following brief video on “The Clinical Value of Telomere Testing” to learn more as well as visiting Telomere101 where you can find the most updated collection of articles, videos and studies in the telomere field.

HOW TO INTERPRET OUR RESULTS REPORT

You will find the following information in Life Length’s results report:

  • Median and average telomere length,
  • A detailed insight into your patient short telomeres by zooming into the 20th percentile,
  • Comparisons with our data base by age band and percentiles,
  • Longitudinal analysis in order to understand the attrition over time that will show you how fast is your patient aging (when testing annually),
  • And your patients’ estimated biological age.
