We have different DNA and therefore respond differently to medications. PGx testing brings awareness of the influence of gene variations on patient response to certain drugs can help physicians decide which type of drug therapy may be appropriate, and identify cases in which a patient isn’t responding as anticipated to a drug. Pharmacogenomic knowledge can help inform therapeutic decisions: predicting and preventing adverse reactions, determining the efficacy of a drug for a particular patient, and predicting the optimal drug dose. 

Results 

  • Provide direction with medication selection for over 120 of the most commonly prescribed medications.

  • Provided in a manner that does not require a knowledge of genetics to understand.

 

  • Organized by therapeutic area and drug class for ease of use in a busy clinical setting

CANDIDATES FOR PGx TESTING

TAKING MORE THAN 1 PRESCRIPTION

The more drugs a patient is taking, the more chance of an ADR. The average Medicare patient takes 5-8 drugs with some as high as 20+ drugs per day

NOT REACTING PROPERLY TO CURRENT MEDICATION

One out of every two patients has a variant gene that alters the drug metabolic rate of these enzymes

ADOLESCENT BEING PRESCRIBED MEDICATION FOR THE 1ST TIME

Knowing the right medicine at the right dose will lower the chance of side-effects
