Leprosy Patients in Indonesia

Leprosy is an infectious disease that affects the skin and nervous system. Patients treated with Dapsone may exhibit Dapsone Hypersensitivity Syndrome (DHS) and potentially cause death 9.9% of the time. A Study confirmed that HLA-B* 13:01 is associated with DHS and carriers of at least one allele are 233.3 times more at risk.

We have also developed and licensed other PGx kits in collaboration with NalaGenetics.
