DNA Connexions

DNA Connections offers the following tests:

  1. Lyme detection panel looks at 3 different species of Borrelia and 8 common co-infections.
  2. Propensity panel looking microbes involved with periodontal disease which can spread systemically and contribute to non-oral diseases in the body.
  3. Comprehensive Oral Health Panel – looks at foreign microbial DNA (88 microbes) of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites in removed teeth, blood, tissue, dental implants, bone grafts and other biological samples.
  4. Apolipoprotein E Panel (ApoE)- this test ability to detoxify mercury, Alzheimer’s susceptibility and other neurological and autoimmune diseases. The optimal genotype for removing mercury is ApoE 2/2, whereas ApoE 3/3 is the most prevalent in the human population. ApoE 4/4 is the most detrimental genotype and has poor mercury detoxification capacity.

We primarily us the the Lyme panel test. A positive PCR result indicates the presence of DNA from B. burgdorferi andor other co-infectors. A negative result does not necessarily mean that a patient is not infected with a tick borne infection, rather it indicates the absence of detectable Lyme and/or other tick borne co-infections, which may be due to the patients ability to fight the disease, timing of courses of antibiotics .
