Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], September 16 (ANI/PNN): Thyrocare, one of India's leading healthcare service providers in the diagnostic segment, has joined with Mapmygenome to launch a genomics-based healthcare solution. Mapmygenome's health and wellness genetic tests will be available in major towns and cities across India through an online pharmacy platform.
As a part of the partnership, Mapmygenome's preventive genetic test Cardiomap is available on Thyrocare's online platform. CardioMap is Mapmygenome's DNA-based solution exclusively for preventing and managing heart conditions. It gives a genetic cardiac risk profile for common cardiovascular diseases. As part of the new strategic collaboration, Mapmygenome plans to launch more of its preventive genetic tests with Thyrocare in the future.
Talking about the partnership, Mapmygenome CEO Anu Acharya said, "We at Mapmygenome are very excited about this partnership as we make our affordable genomic tests more accessible to the masses, especially for the millions who may be at risk for getting a cardiovascular disease."
Here's what Dr Caesar Sengupta, Thyrocare Vice President - Operations, had to say about the partnership, "We are very excited to step into the world of human genomics in partnership with MapMyGenome. Both organisations are completely aligned with the vision of bringing in next-generation diagnostic solutions for offering affordable and quality preventive healthcare for the masses. Cardiovascular diseases comprise 31 per cent of deaths globally and are a major reason for deaths in India. We also see an increasing number of young individuals getting cardiovascular diseases. CardioMap could prove to be revolutionary in predicting information early about the risk of developing common cardiovascular diseases and associated traits, obesity risk and imbalances in lipid metabolism, drug responses, blood pressure risk and risk for other lifestyle-related disorders."
