These Tests screen for select clinically relevant genetic variations in human genomic DNA to assess genetic risk or predisposition to various diseases and/or traits. These Tests may require further confirmatory tests and advice of a qualified medical practitioner before any action is taken and TrichoGene shall not be responsible for the same. Genetic risks are merely indicators of the genetic condition of the individual. If data indicates no substantial genetic risk for a particular disease or condition, it does not imply complete protection of that individual from that particular disease. Similarly, if data indicates a substantial genetic risk for a particular disease or condition, it does not imply certainty to develop the disease or condition. The likelihood of an individual developing a particular health condition is substantially dependent on his/her lifestyle and other factors. Genetics is only part of the picture of any individual’s state of being. Also, the understanding of genetic information is rapidly evolving and at any given time TrichoGene can only comprehend part of the picture of the role of genetics, and only a trained physician or other health care provider can assess current state of health or disease, considering all the factors. Further, TrichoGene services are largely dependent on the assistance provided by TrichoGene’ partners depending upon their expertise in the relevant areas which shall cause certain variations in the Test results. TrichoGene shall not be responsible for such variations or for the loss of your Samples or any information, due to malfunction or destruction of data servers or other catastrophic events beyond our control.
