Measuring exposure to pollution to reduce health risks. 

According to the WHO, chronic diseases are the leading cause of death for humans. Many chronic diseases have their origins in the daily environment of patients. 

Daily exposure to multiple chemical substances such as heavy metals and organic pollutants is known to have a proven impact on health in the short, medium and long term. 

Some pollutants show health effects from low doses of exposure and mixtures of pollutants can increase their toxicity (cocktail effect).  

The exposome is defined as the totality of exposures to environmental factors that an organism undergoes from conception to the end of its life. The exposome is a determining factor in the expression of the genome. 

The measurement of biological parameters and knowledge of the expsome are powerful tools for finding the causes, understanding the mechanisms and identifying the symptoms of chronic diseases such as:

  •     Diabetes
  •     Cardiovascular diseases 
  •     Cancer 
  •     Neurological disorders 
  •     Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases 
  •     Asthma 
  •     Allergies 
  •     Endocrine diseases 
  •     Liver and kidney disorders 
  •     Migraines 
  •     Skin diseases

  •     Gynaecologists & Andrologists  
  •     Toxicologists 
  •     Oncologists / Cancerologists 
  •     Pneumologists & Allergists 
  •     Neurologists 
  •     Hematologists 
  •     Nephrologists 
  •     Dermatologists 
  •     Medical biologists

EXPOZOM proposes to measure the exposure to pollutants in our daily environment: 

  •     Biological analyses to measure the contamination of the body by heavy metals, pesticides, plasticizers and flame retardants. 
  •     Environmental analyses to measure ambient air pollution by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) 

 

Why measure the exposome? 

  •     To assess the health risks of exposure to pollution.
  •     To identify the pollutants potentially responsible for chronic diseases.
  •     To help patients limit their exposure to prevent the risk of chronic diseases.
  •     To slow down or even stop the evolution of a chronic disease.
  •     Reduce the risk of relapse caused by the patient's environment.
  •     To highlight field observations.
  •     Prevent occupational diseases.
  •     Reduce asthma and pulmonary pathologies.
  •     Supporting parents before conception and during pregnancy to limit the effects on the embryo and fetus.
  •     Preventing congenital and endocrine diseases.
  •     To study reproductive disorders.
  •     To link a pathology to an environmental cause.

 

Why use EXPOZOM solutions? 

  •     Simplicity of use: reliable and very simple sampling methods, requiring no technical skills. 
  •     Highly accurate measurement results. 
  •     Reliability of a certified French laboratory using state-of-the-art technology. 
  •     Complete and anonymous analysis report. 
  •     Prepaid return of samples included in the kit from many countries.
