M.A.G.I.C. CLINIC LTD
Care for People with Rare Metabolic and Genetic Diseases
Who we are
M.A.G.I.C stands for Metabolics and Genetics in Calgary. We are a medical clinic that specializes in looking after patients (children and adults) with rare diseases that are due to changes in their DNA. Things like Lysosomal Storage Diseases (Fabry disease, Gaucher disease, Pompe disease to name a few), Mitochondrial Diseases, and overall more than 2,000 known different genetic diseases.
We use a modern approach to diagnose and treat rare diseases with a team that cares about how well you do
We have technologies that can give you results on genetic testing in less than a week. That gives you the fastest access to Whole Exome Sequencing, Whole Genome Sequencing, and our unique Mitochondrial Genome Sequencing
We look at finding those special medications that can make a difference. We have the largest clinic in Alberta for patients with lysosomal diseases needing enzyme therapies or spinal injection therapies
We provide Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening for Down Syndrome and other conditions with only one tube of blood
BREAST CANCER SCREENING
We offer a simple blood test for breast cancer screening. Non-invasive, easy, and simple
Dr. Aneal Khan
MSc (Nutrition), MD, FRCPC (Pediatrics), FCCMG (Medical Genetics)
PEDIATRICIAN & Medical Geneticist
Dr. Khan graduated from the University of Toronto with a Master of Science in Nutrition. He completed his MD degree at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and Pediatric specialty training followed by Medical Genetics training at Rush Medical College in Chicago and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. He has worked at the Hospital for Sick Children, University Health Network, McMaster Children’s Hospital, and Alberta Children’s Hospital.
He was the first physician in the world to treat Fabry disease and Gaucher disease using Gene Therapy, the first in Canada to use Liver Cell Transplant and Gene Therapy to treat Urea Cycle Diseases and is experienced in using research drugs injected directly into the spine.
Dr. Khan has extensive experience in diagnosing and treating mitochondrial diseases and published the largest clinical trial in Canada, called MITO-FIND, focusing on using DNA sequencing methods to diagnose mitochondrial disease. After having performed hundreds of muscle biopsies on children and adults, he worked with his team to develop a mitochondrial DNA sequencing method that can make a diagnosis from a cheek swab using Nanopore sequencing without the need to do a muscle biopsy in the majority of cases.
