HKG Epitherapeutics is on a mission to improve healthcare and well-being for people worldwide
Hong Kong (Sept. 30, 2019) – HKG epiTherapeutics, a Hong Kong-based startup, has announced today the launch of their first product “epiAge”. Through a simple saliva test, customers are provided with a data set that shows them their biological age. EpiA uses a cutting-edge method known as DNA methylation to reveal information about a person’s true age and health condition, allowing the user to identify the quality and span of their life, encouraging and enabling them to make positive lifestyle changes.
Starting today, customers can purchase the test on our website and download the app all around the world. Through the EpiAge App customers can retrieve the test report, learn about the science behind epigenetics as well as study health related topics. Based on their specific results and lifestyle, customers can identify how to positively impact their overall health and well-being.
Founded in 2016 by Prof. Moshe Szyf, holding a Ph.D from Hebrew University, a postdoctoral fellowship in Genetics at Harvard Medical School, a Professorship at McGill University and a Chair in Pharmacology at GlaxoSmithKline, Dr. Szyf is a “pioneer powerhouse” in the rapidly emerging field of epigenetics. The company’s focus lies in the prevention and early detection of diseases such as cancer and chronic diseases in order to positively impact healthcare, well-being and quality of life for large populations of people worldwide.
“Our purpose is to take the science of epigenetics and make it useful for everyone. If the science of epigenetics can detect diseases early, why wouldn’t we share it?” Prof. Moshe Szyf
