LOS ANGELES and SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) and Lineagen, Inc. today announced the launch of a new clinical partnership to offer Lineagen's FirstStepDx® genetic test to patients and their families. FirstStepDx is a whole-genome genetic test customized with validated, novel proprietary genetic variants associated with ASDs. Under the terms of the partnership agreement, FirstStepDx, integrated with a pre-and post-test genetic counseling service and personalized reporting, will be offered to patients receiving treatment in CARD's innovative Skills® program. The program is the first of its kind, designed to fully meet current clinical guidelines that recommend chromosomal microarray analysis as a first-line genetic test as part of a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation of individuals with ASDs.
CARD is the world's largest provider of state-of-the-art, early intensive behavioral intervention for individuals with ASDs. Lineagen is an innovative molecular diagnostics company focused on integrated genetic testing and counseling for individuals with ASDs and other disorders of childhood development.
Doreen Granpeesheh, Ph.D., CARD Founder and Executive Director, commented, "We are constantly seeking new opportunities to enhance our services with proven research and guideline supported technology and services. Recent scientific literature and clinical guidelines have recommended genetic testing and counseling for children with ASDs. In selecting a partner in this area, CARD chose Lineagen's FirstStepDx because it includes the most advanced technology complemented with the personal service similar to that provided by CARD to each patient and family."
Michael S. Paul, Ph.D., Lineagen's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are very pleased to initiate our clinical partnership program with CARD. Identification of genetic variants associated with ASDs, as well as other disorders of childhood development, with our FirstStepDx test furthers the understanding of the etiology for these disorders and may aid physicians and treatment specialists to more accurately guide clinical management. We look forward to providing children who are receiving the best treatment at CARD with the best genetic testing and genetic counseling service currently available."
