Alnylam Act®: One option for genetic testing and counseling
If you haven’t been diagnosed with PH1, you or your healthcare provider can request genetic testing and counseling through the Alnylam Act® program offered at no charge, if you meet certain criteria. The test is done using a blood, saliva, or buccal sample. Siblings and family members may also be tested through Alnylam Act®.
The Alnylam Act® program was created to provide access to genetic testing and counseling to patients as a way to help people make more informed decisions about their health.

- Healthcare professionals or patients who use this program have no obligation to recommend, purchase, order, prescribe, promote, administer, use, or support any Alnylam product
