In recent years, the research field of epigenetics has shown that the molecular structures that are present in the cell nucleus as DNA also exert regulatory effects on genes. In numerous studies, we have been able to find and prove the exchange of whole chromosome parts in the IGL laboratory. The so-called chromatin (the molecular structures of the DNA) can be molecularly altered and thus have a dynamic effect on genes and on cellular functions.
The investigations by Dr. Patricia Kane (MD) in the USA and the IGL laboratory show that an extremely large number of the modifications in the chromatin structure are influenced by environmental factors or toxins, are hereditary and largely reversible. This makes the chromatin structure the decisive link between genes and the environment as well as the development and course of diseases.
The aim of the IGL laboratory is to bring the knowledge gained from pure research into such important determining factors into practice.
The modulating mechanisms of epigenetics act directly on the genome through environmental factors (toxins), which can lead to the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, dementia, multiple sclerosis, CFS, fibromyalgia syndromes and especially autism.
One of our goals in epigenetic research is to identify the alteration phenotypes and elucidate the mechanisms of their transmission.
Epigenetic research approaches of IGL Labor GmbH:
- Autism and epigenetics
- understand molecular mechanisms to determine diseases in the physiological context also in the disease scenarios
- hereditary changes in patterns of epigenetic marks
- transport proteins in the cell membrane
- viral effects in epigenetics and vaccines
- DNA methylation patterns and their modifiability by microRNA
- somatic development of DNA methylation patterns in response to physiological stimuli
- Epigenetic factors of homeostasis
- DNA methylation targeting, selection mechanisms
- DNA methylation in cellular stress response and adaptation
- DNA storage and divergence of DNA methylation
- Epigenetic changes in the ageing process, changes in chromatin structure in neurons and degenerative diseases
"For me, the IGL laboratory has become indispensable in order to qualitatively and quantitatively detect environmental exposures on a cellular level and to show the patient their relevance for the individual recovery process. This serves both the detection and elimination of health-relevant exposures, as well as the indication and follow-up of detoxification measures.
I also use the IGL lab to gain an understanding of necessary behavioral changes. As a result, many patients actually change their consumption behavior, which benefits individual health and that of the planet.
I also particularly value the opportunity to discuss individual reports in person in order to identify possible therapeutic approaches."

"I got to know the IGL laboratory in March 2018 as part of a cell membrane therapy training course. I was immediately enthusiastic about the diagnostic results and the therapeutic measures based on them. The enthusiasm continues to this day, and I can no longer imagine my daily practice without diagnostics in the IGL laboratory."

"I am very satisfied with the laboratory, the accessibility, contact and now also with the customer center. Everything always went quickly and wonderfully when I had questions."

"IGL is the only laboratory I am aware of which can shed light on Robert Naviaux’ s ground breaking work on the cell danger response, mitochondrial function, as well as reveal toxic insults to the cell membrane and mitochondrial DNA. In my clinical opinion and practice, there is no other tests that comes close to what the IGL test reveals. It has been an absolute game changer in how I approach complex patient diagnosis and treatment."
