About The Dor Yeshorim Program:
Our current standard Ashkenazi panel consists of 9 diseases. We also offer an optional testing panel of 7 additional Ashkenazi diseases; these diseases are less commonly found, yet share the same severity as the standard panel of diseases. You can request this optional panel of testing for an additional $75. The Sephardi panel of tests was recently introduced following years of research and development in response to the growing occurrences of genetic diseases specific to the Sephardic population. It includes testing for 16 diseases.
We follow the global industry standard of only testing for genetic diseases once a reliable result can be ascertained, and the manifestations of the actual diseases are clear-cut. In fact, Dor Yeshorim utilizes over three decades of experience serving the Jewish community and our extensive database to help develop the standard. Each year, we spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on research, in an effort to expand the testing panels to include reliable testing for additional diseases. Diseases are added to the Dor Yeshorim panels in conjunction with the recommendations of the ACMG (American College of Medical Genetics) the Israeli Health Ministry, and our Medical Advisory Board.
