Definitions for "Genetic susceptibility"
An inherited increase in the risk of developing a disease.
an inherited condition which is carried on the genetic material DNA. It makes an individual more likely to develop an illness.
Increased probability (compared to the general population) of developing a disease, due to the presence of one or more gene mutations. Genetic predispositions, unlike most 'single gene' genetic conditions, are modified by non-genetic influences, such as diet or smoking.
