Nalagenetics is a health-tech company that provides genetic testing. In 2016, the company collaborated with the Indonesian health ministry to distribute 1,000 genetic test kits in five villages in Papua and West Papua. The company's tests revealed that 20% of leprosy patients in the area carry the gene responsible for potentially fatal reactions to Dapsone, an anti-leprosy medication; this discovery assisted doctors in determining which patients could be safely treated with the antibiotic.Something looks off?
