Personalized medicine and personalized approach to nutrition.
The project started in August 2015. The company «Genetic diversity» is a member of the biopharmaceutical cluster "Northern" and collaborates with leading US and German organizations.
The DNA test «Nutritest», offered by Genetic Diversity, is intended to create a personalized diet based on the latest scientific achievements.
«Nutritest» allows to identify individual characteristics of genes involved in metabolism and the ability to loose and gain weight in response to food components and to select the optimal diet with a detailed plan, which takes into account the volume and percentage of servings of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. The material probe is taken by scraping the buccal epithelium from the inner part of the patient’s cheek, and then sent to a laboratory for identification of five single nucleotide substitutions (SNP) in the four polymorphic genes (FABP2, PPARG, ADRB2, ADRB3), associated with the effect on the accumulation / reduction of body weight. The analysis is performed by allele-specific polymerase chain reaction in real-time (PCR-Real-Time). The research is conducted using reagents, produced by one partner company «BioLink», based in Novosibirsk, and passes validation tests in the MIPT Genomic Center.
In late 2010, researchers of Stanford University (USA) conducted a large-scale study in which women with different genetic characteristics lost weight on either a low-fat diet, low-carbohydrates diet or a balanced diet, but with increased physical activity.
Three groups were identified as «effective slimming»: one with the necessity to reduce fat in the diet, another - carbohydrates, the third shows the need for increased physical activity.
The Russian version of the genetic test associated with the choice of the best way of correction of body weight was developed by the scientists at the Gene-diagnostic Laboratory «GenDiv, LLC». Leading endocrinologists provide advice on diet selection in accordance with the genetic characteristics of the patient, as well as the features of his health conditions.
In 2012, the effectiveness of this approach has been confirmed by studies carried out in Europe by the Danish company «Nordisk DNADiet», involving more than 7500 people.
The trademark «Nutritest» is in process of registration.
The main purpose of Genetic Diversity in the 2015-2018 perspective is the commercialization and promotion of the DNA test «Nutritest».
Sales channels include both B2C (online sales) and B2B (sale through private medical centers, network laboratories, fitness clubs, nutritionists, chemists).
Genetic Diversity takes an active part in important specialized events and exhibitions in Russia, including rolling out full genetic laboratories. Thus, during the forum "Open Innovation" more than 200 people expressed interest in receiving DNA testing.
Genetic Diversity has representative offices in San Diego (USA) and Ludwigshafen (Germany).
