Yes, it is easy. We will post a saliva collection kit and a return envelope to your home via Postnord. You simply spit saliva into the collection tube. If you need help, instructions are enclosed in the kit. Once you have collected saliva, you place the kit in the return envelope, which has a paid return label. You can then drop off the envelope at any Postnord service point.

The only other thing you need to do is to provide your details and our family’s medical history. The tools on our website will help you easily input the information. It is okay if you don’t provide your family medical history because you don’t know or you prefer not to.

The risk for 10 cancer types is mapped out by using the proven risk models and reference risk estimation data that are recommended in Swedish national guidelines. The below information is used as input to the mapping:
  • The results of your genetic tests. You can find more information in the section "What is the technology behind the genetic test?"
  • Your family medical history. Given the limitation of the current genomic science, your genetic test data alone cannot predict all risks. The family’s medical history contains much hereditary information. In some cases, family history alone can predict hereditary cancer risk. Therefore family medical history is used as part of the input.
  • Information on you and your medical history. Personal information such as ethnicity and ancestry roots have an impact on our hereditary risks. Your lifestyle and medical history affect the risk level.
Note that the risks we report are hereditary risks. That is the risk that you inherited from your biological parents.
The Eiira Premium test uses whole genome sequencing (WGS), the most advanced method that allows us to read and analyze the entire set of genetic information (DNA) in your genome, which consists of several billion base pairs. This vast amount of data can be used to identify variations or mutations in a person's DNA that may affect their health or make them more prone to certain diseases. The scale of the sequencing process and the need for specialized equipment, skilled technicians, and advanced computational tools make whole genome sequencing a more expensive option compared to other genetic testing methods, such as panel genetic tests commonly used by most testing providers and hospitals, or whole exome sequencing (WES) used in Eiira Classic.
WGS can be used to analyze both genomic and somatic DNA, but for Eiira's hereditary risk assessment it is performed on a person's genome. This enables the identification of genetic variations that may increase a person's risk of developing certain inherited diseases, such as breast cancer, colorectal cancer or other cancers and diseases, such as heart disease.
Eiira's test and the inclusion of 43 genes: The report includes 43 genes, based on Swedish guidelines, that are known to increase the risk of developing cancer. Genetic information is collected through whole genome sequencing (WGS) and analyzed with computational tools to find mutations linked to increased disease risk. The results are used to provide individualized recommendations for disease prevention, early detection and treatment, leading to more personalized care.
The advantage of staying up-to-date without taking another test: Using genome DNA for WGS has the advantage that it remains unchanged during a person's lifetime. This means that additional genetic tests for whole genome data are not needed. This allows for continuous updating with the latest genome research and cancer prevention measures without additional testing. Thanks to constant scientific progress, people can benefit from these breakthroughs without the hassle and expense of additional testing.
First of all, we need to understand that the risk is the likelihood of developing cancer:
  • Risk is not a diagnosis.
  • Some people with high risk never have cancer.
  • Similarly, people with low risk can still develop cancer.
Second, there are preventive measures to empower you. The report will inform you of proactive options available in Sweden. For many cancers, over 90% (close to 100% for breast cancers) survive if discovered early. The healthcare system has a number of monitoring programs to discover cancers early. We’ll inform you how to enter the Swedish healthcare system. There are also preventive healthcare partners that we can recommend to you.
Third, you can choose a one-hour free video meeting with one of our genetic counsellors who can address your questions and concerns and guide you through the process of understanding and taking preventive action.
Finally, if a pathogenic variant is found, it may be inherited by other family members. Therefore you may want to inform your siblings or children so that they have the option to discover and plan for themselves.
If you wish to discover more hereditary cancers, you can watch the recording of the talk given by Dr Svetlana from Karolinska Hospital at one of the Eiira events.

What are the ten cancer?

Here is the list of the ten cancers:

Melanoma
Pancreatic
Kidney/Renal
Colorectal cancer
Prostate for men
Ten types of cancer
Thyroid
Breastsfor men and women
Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer
Uterinefor women
Ovarianfor women

Genes associated

For this purpose, we analyze 43 genes in your DNA for the absence or presence of pathogenic variants associated with an increased cancer risk. These genes are selected based on their known association with certain cancer types or cancer syndromes. The table below illustrates ten cancer types and their associated genes (i.e. genes where we know that individuals have an increased risk of cancer if they have a pathogenic variant).
