Does HKGP require any additional medical procedures to collect my genetic material?

If you are a patient, the Project team will assist you in taking blood/saliva/buccal swab samples for genetic sequencing depending on your medical condition. Body tissue samples might also be necessary, but the team will only collect them during surgery arranged due to your clinical needs or from excised tissues after the surgery. Additional surgery would not be required to collect tissue samples for HKGP.


If you are a family member of a patient, the Project team will simply need you to provide a blood sample.
