Gene expression testing is not just for those suffering complex autoimmune related illness.
Gene expression testing identifying specific biomarkers unique to the individual influencing inflammatory aging, recovery and performance.

Anti-inflammatory gene expressions:
GM-CSF, IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-10, IL-13, IL-21, TGF-β1, IGF1, VEGF, BDNF, P53, Nrf2.
Cytokine Storm Syndrome
A diverse set of (autoimmune) conditions unified by a clinical phenotype of systemic inflammation, multi‐organ failure, hyperferritinemia and if untreated, often death. This "clinical constellation" (cytokine storm) is caused by the elaboration of extreme amounts of pro- inflammatory cytokine mediators resulting from unchecked feedforward immune activation and amplification. The initiating factors leading to the end state of cytokine storm are heterogeneous and derive from rheumatologic, oncologic, and infectious origins.
Case Study DC age 7 Autism
Cytokine Testing pre-HBOT, then 70-hours HBOT and again at 120 hours HBOT.
- High functional autism, non-social, non-verbal,
Typically between 50-70 hours of HBOT, there is a "washout" of inflammatory cytokines followed by reduction of the inflammatory markers corresponding with notable elevation of anti-inflammatory cytokines including BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor).
- Significant improvement, global executive functioning, talking, responsive, drawing and reading.
Case Study R age 7 Glioblastoma
Cytokine Testing pre-HBOT and again at 106 hours HBOT.
Case Study Athlete pre HBOT and post HBOT at 90-hours
