Why Genetic Testing?

Test Today

The International Pediatric Otolaryngology Group (IPOG)1 and American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG)2 recommend genetic testing for individuals with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss and auditory neuropathy. The Resonate program specifically assesses genes linked to hearing loss, using a comprehensive panel of almost 300 genes.

Diagnose Early

Genetic testing may allow for earlier diagnosis and informed decision making3-4.

  • Genetic testing may provide an earlier diagnosis of a syndromic condition and associated health issues such as low vision or heart anomalies.
  • A genetic diagnosis may help determine whether hearing loss is expected to be stable or progressive.
  • Genetic testing may provide information about inheritance risk. Most forms of genetic hearing loss are autosomal recessive and may occur without a family history.

Inform Care

A genetic diagnosis may help healthcare providers personalize and/or expedite patient care by guiding treatment decisions, communication and rehabilitation options, and potential eligibility for gene therapy clinical trials3-4

Program Overview

Did you know…

More than 60% of congenital hearing loss is due to an underlying genetic cause5, but fewer than 20% of children with sensorineural hearing loss receive genetic testing6.

The Resonate program may help inform and expedite care by removing some of the common barriers to genetic testing7. Akouos is partnering with PreventionGenetics for genetic testing and with InformedDNA for genetic counseling and test ordering.

How it Works

The Resonate program offers healthcare providers two options for ordering genetic testing for eligible patients. Akouos is partnering with PreventionGenetics for genetic testing and with InformedDNA to provide genetic counseling and test ordering.
