Clear diagnosis with genetic testing is the basis of effective treatment and management for many disorders of the brain and nervous system. Serving as an invaluable tool, genetic testing enables the identification of inherited neurological conditions, such as muscle control and movement disorders, delayed mental development, degeneracy and learning disabilities. With knowledge of variants associated with neurological diseases in more than 1,850 genes, our vast knowledge and diagnostic expertise can help you diagnose your patients quickly and comprehensively.

  • Collaborative Discovery of Gene-Disease Associations

    The delineation of novel genetic disorders is facilitated by the formation of global research consortia. By actively contributing to collaborative efforts, CENTOGENE has supported dozens of gene-disease discovery projects over the past years. One such example was recently published in Genetics in…

  • COVID-19 and Parkinson’s Disease

    As one of the company’s priority diseases, CENTOGENE is continuously carrying out research into the causes of Parkinson’s disease (PD). A recurrent observation has been a temporal link of the development of PD to SARS-CoV-2 infections. Corroborating similar findings by others, a corresponding study…

  • Sharing Diagnostic Insights to Support Rare Disease Patients

    Defining a disorder’s complete clinical spectrum requires a detailed description of large numbers of patients. To help advance the understanding of rare diseases, CENTOGENE is committed to leveraging its extensive Bio/Databank and sharing its diagnostic insights within the scientific community. A…

  • Modifiers of Genetic Disease

    Therapeutic strategies for monogenic diseases may be derived from the identification and understanding of disease-modifying factors. Researchers at CENTOGENE have been applying this rather novel approach, including in collaborative settings with academic colleagues from institutions around the…

  • Globally Rare – Locally Common

    Genetic diseases that are generally rare may still have a high prevalence in certain geographic regions. As a major diagnostic partner for physicians in certain countries, CENTOGENE has been able to systematically investigate patient cases based on highly uniform data sets. A corresponding study…
