Personalizing alopecia treatments through genomic testing
TrichoTest™ is an innovative genetic test that supports practitioners, prescribers, and other licensed healthcare professionals to personalize alopecia (hair loss) treatments for their patients. 3 polymorphisms within 16 SNPs, resulting in 48 (3×16) genetic variations related to alopecia, are analyzed using state-of-the-art DNA OpenArray technology that is 99.9% reproducible. The resulting TrichoTest™ report is comprehensive and easy to understand. Further, the report provides information from the Medical Director at GX Sciences to assist the practitioner in creating a treatment plan for the patient.

About alopecia and TrichoTest™
Alopecia (hair loss) is a progressive, multifactorial condition that has different forms and causes, determined by a combination of both genetic and extrinsic factors. The combination of both factors should be addressed as a whole during alopecia treatment. Approximately 80 million men and women in the United States alone suffer from hair loss and hair thinning. The most common hair loss type, known as androgenetic alopecia, is hereditary. If left untreated, hair loss usually progresses over time. TrichoTest™ delivers invaluable information to support practitioners in developing the optimal treatment plan for each patient.
As soon as the provider is registered the steps are simple:
1. Kits are ordered via exclusive online portal and sent to either the practice’s office or drop shipped directly to the patient’s home.
2. A DNA sample is collected via 1-minute buccal cheek swab, a questionnaire is filled out, and both are easily sent back to the GX Sciences lab.
3. GX Sciences will process each patient’s sample, and within just 5 – 7 business will upload each report to the provider’s online portal account.
4. The licensed provider recommends and prescribes personalized treatment plans to each patient.
