World Haemochromatosis Week 2020


News | May 30, 2020

From June 1st to June 7th 2020 is World Haemochromatosis Week.

Hemochromatosis is characterised by an excess of iron in blood. Causes for the disease are mostly hereditary and the illness can be diagnosed by genetic testing. Hemochromatosis is often overlooked because its symptoms are generally non-specific and can be confused with other illnesses.

The excess iron deposited in a variety of organs can however lead to irreversible tissue damage, particularly in the liver and pancreas, which leads to serious diseases such as cirrhosis, diabetes, arthritis or hypogonadism.
Early diagnosis of the disease is thus crucial.

The single tube PCR reagent kit Devyser HFE allows a fast and specific detection of mutations in the HFE gene.
