DNA PCR Testing for Mold in the Human Body
Deoxyribonucleic acid "DNA"
DNA is a nucleic acid containing the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms. DNA segments carrying genetic information are called genes. DNA sequences are involved in regulating every function of human body. DNA is one of the three major macromolecules that are essential for all known forms of life.
Polymerase chain reaction "PCR"
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) enables researchers to produce millions of copies of a specific DNA sequence in approximately two hours. This automated process bypasses the need to use bacteria for amplifying DNA, and is also called "RealTime".
The Use of DNA PCR Testing in Relationship to Mold Exposure
The recent development and use of DNA PCR testing for the detection of fungi, yeast and their secondary metabolites
regarding mold exposure and mold sickness in the human body has opened new doors and pathways for a new, clearer understanding of these types of environmental exposures. The Mold Treatment Centers Of America utilizes DNA PCR testing for the advanced diagnosis and treatment of its patients. The Mold Treatment Centers Of America leads the way in this type of testing and the realization of its value to its patients.
Testing for Cancer and Mold with DNA PCR
The Mold Treatment Centers Of America is the only facility that utilizes DNA PCR testing for the detection of genetic changes caused by mycotoxins, which can produce mutagenic and carcinogenic cell production within the human body.
