The science of DNA testing has been around for decades. It’s been used to test for paternity, ancestry, disease screening, prenatal testing and more. Since both hereditary conditions and diseases and developing diseases occur on the cellular level, a DNA test can help determine if an individual is at risk, or even exhibits, certain diseases. Beyond this, with DNA analysis, not only can diseases and conditions be tested for, now, so can their treatments. DNA Stat is the leading DNA testing service facility in the field of pharmacogenomics. Their mission is to help patients who are suffering from certain diseases and issues through DNA analysis, to target specific medications and treatments that synchronize with their own genetic makeup.
The DNA testing process starts with a Buccal swab of the cheek which is painless and blood-free. From there, the DNA test is sent to a DNA Testing lab and the DNA analysis begins. Ultimately, a Pharm D report is created which is essentially the individual’s genetic blueprint. Armed with a Pharm D report, a doctor can accurately prescribe medication to their patient by eliminating the medications and treatments that will have no effect or worse, will have an adverse effect on them.
The 21st century has seen many improvements and expansions in the field of DNA testing. DNA Testing is working hard on a daily basis to expand the scope of medical conditions covered by this type of DNA analysis. It is their hope and mission that one day, every medical issue will be treated promptly, accurately and successfully through the use of pharmacogenomics and DNA testing.
