HYDERABAD, India - May 31, 2014 - PRLog -- Hyderabad, India, May 31, 2014: Mapmygenome India launched a new DNA-based Lung Cancer and Nicotine Dependence test on World No Tobacco Day, May 31, 2014. This test decodes DNA, finds specific changes in the code, and assesses the genetic risk for lung cancer and nicotine dependence. Priced at INR 15,000, this test is recommended to people who have a history of smoking and exposure to environmental tobacco smoke.

Ms. Anu  Acharya, CEO of Mapmygenome, said “Our genetics-based lung cancer and nicotine dependence test is the culmination of requests from several key members of the medical community. This is our way of saying No to tobacco and Yes to oxygen.”

The test uses single nucleotide polymorphism genotyping of proven markers associated with lung cancer in order to study inherited and acquired changes in DNA that contribute to the disease risk. The nicotine dependence markers allow users to understand their nicotine dependence pattern and formulate better smoking cessation plans.
