Pathway Genomics is a privately held personal genomics company based in San Diego, California. Using DNA genetic testing technologies, the company conducts services to generate personalized reports about an individual’s carrier status, drug response, propensity for the development of certain complex diseases, as well as ancestral history. The company provides these personal genetic reports to physicians and their patients. Pathway Genomics owns and operates a federally CLIA certified and California state-licensed on-site laboratory. According to its website, Pathway Genomics reports on a number of health conditions including Alzheimer's disease, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, cystic fibrosis and beta thalassaemia, as well as screens for drug responses for such medications as Plavix and warfarin . The company has registered its saliva collection kit with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a Class I 510 Exempt medical device. Wikipedia.

Patent
Pathway Genomics | Date: 2016-04-29

The present inventions relates to methods and assays to predict the response of an individual to an analgesic treatment and to a method to improve medical treatment of a disorder, which is responsive to treatment with an analgesic.


The present inventions relates to methods and assays to predict the response of an individual to a psychiatric treatment and to a method to improve medical treatment of a disorder, which is responsive to treatment with a psychiatric treatment.


Systems have been devised for health management based upon genetic markers. Specifically, systems are arranged to compute genetic risk for several factors relating to metabolism and weight gain in view of various genotypes at particular markers in an individuals genome. An algorithm which depends upon these risk calculations and in further view of the presence of additional variants in the genome under test is executed to arrive at a diet type selection for the particular user. In additions to diet type selections, specific supporting diet related recommendations related to eating behaviors, food reactions and nutritional needs, based upon markers found in the genetic profile, are additionally included in a diet action plan.

Apparatus and methods are devised and provided to receive genetic material from a human test subject and further to characterize that genetic material into an electronic representation of a genome. In particular, with respect to many genetic features which relate to diet, nutrition and exercise with a view to weight control. Based upon the presence of certain genetic features, genetic markers or polymorphisms, a rules based logic path is executed to arrive at a action plan set of recommendations. These recommendations relate to lifestyle actions which may be taken up by a person and these actions thus relate to that persons particular genetic composition. These apparatus and methods produce an easy-to-consume visual presentation describing genetic based traits and conditions, the personal status of a test subject as it relates to these genetic dependent traits and conditions, and possible lifestyle actions which may be performed by the user.

A drug management system based upon membership genomic data is coupled to cooperating external computing systems via an object server which prepares drug use reports for automated delivery in response to results that data output from the member database. Based on rules stored in a rules library a query engine runs tests on the stored member genetic information to identify and meet specified criteria.


In accordance with the present invention, there are provided health and wellness management methods which generate an action plan set of recommendations by taking into account a wide variety of inputs, including subject-specific information and globally applicable information. Also provided herewith are systems for the practice of the above-described methods.

Biological sample collection kits are devised with physical features to enable a high performance collection system which delivers preprocessed biological matter via conventional shipping means to a testing laboratories. In particular, untrained and unskilled users deposit biological matter such as saliva or blood into a receiving vessel. By sealing the container, the user causes release of a premixed solution containing preservatives and optionally lysis reagents. In addition, a purification agent is arranged to bind to target molecules and facilitate their removal from solution. These time consuming processes occur while the sample is in transit to the testing facility such that when it arrives, it is in a preconditioned state immediately ready for execution of washing steps. Thus, the high performance containers taught herein are useful for collection biological samples and performing initial process steps on received mattersteps which are largely effected during the shipping stage of the transfer process.


Dual mode genetics testing systems are devised about a single element testing platform. A microfluidic network and system of interconnected receiving cells and reaction vessels supports at the same time genotyping and copy number analysis where the platform may be subject to a common thermal cycle schedule to cause the proper reactions (DNA replication) necessary in both test types. Further, the microfluidic platform which includes reaction vessels for genotyping which are spatially removed from reaction vessels for copy number analysis, is coupled to optical scanner and detection systems specifically arranged to apply test specific detection routines on each of these distinct regions or portions of the dual mode test platform.

Alerting systems include mechanical chemical systems for analyzing a human DNA samples to produce a genomic data set representing genetic indicators or markers on alleles of interest including those as well SNPs associated with important trial traits disease and characteristics. A genome dataset is stored as a portion of a data a record having a one-to-one correspondence with membership in a membership database. A dynamic rule that provides a query engine with logic which can be executed against membership data stored in accordance with standardized database procedures to produce a genomic result set from which appropriate alerts may be formed in a computer apparatus. These alerts may be characterized as including multimedia information and they may be prefer to play conveyed to membership with whom the underlying data is associated.
