Haemochromatosis

The easy way to test for Haemochromatosis 

Haemochromatosis

Hereditary haemochromatosis is a common genetic disorder of iron metabolism. It results in a progressive accumulation of iron in various organs, such as liver, heart and pancreas. Common complications include liver cirrhosis, diabetes, arthritis or cardiomyopathies.

Classical or type 1 haemochromatosis is caused by mutations in the HFE gene. They all code for proteins with an important role in regulating body iron stores, mutated forms can lead to iron accumulation in tissues and organs and can ultimately disrupt their normal functions.

The StripAssays® offer an easy way to identify the most common mutations in genes contributing to hereditary iron overload. Established innovations in diagnostics by ViennaLab thus aid in the early identification and effective therapy.
