The pharmaceutical industry talks about “the number needed to treat”. What is that? Genetic testing is that solution for people, knowing if the drugs prescribed really work. Cardiology, Pain Management, OBYGYN can test patients for drug sensitivity.
The time has come, now Physicians can start the benefits and effectiveness of drug therapy through pharmacogenomics. Home Special thanks to the American Medical Association and Arizona Critical Path Institute.
Why test your metabolism? It’s a simple one-time metabolic DNA test. The MedTech will collect saliva from your mouth with a buccal swab. Simple. The swab is sent securely to our lab for testing. What Test? Your sample is tested to decide how you metabolize medicine prescribed by your physician. How you process medicine once […]
There are several inherent reasons to consider pharmacogenomic genetic testing. Drugs are metabolized slowly in individuals carrying different phenotypes that cause absent or decreased enzyme activity, and these patients are at risk for adverse drug reactions or therapeutic failure. Nonetheless, drug therapy could be effective if the drug is metabolized too quickly because of a […]
Laboratories look at your genes, which are the DNA instructions you inherit from your mother and your father. Genetic tests may be used to identify increased risks of health problems, to choose treatments, or to assess responses to treatments. You should consider testing. Most illnesses need immediate detection. There are many different types of genetic […]
Our doctors note that “with the exception of specific warfarin testing,” pharmacogenetic testing in their patient population has improved clinical decision making and patient outcomes. In one case treating a young woman with chronic pain and “NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) intolerance” in whom pharmacogenetic testing showed to be a poor metabolizer of almost all NSAIDs, […]
DNA Metabolic Testing Start with swabbing your cheek. This will tell me which drugs will do good for you and which drugs may harm you. Simple. Smart. Prescribe the right drugs the first time. Yes, and even on children. Enter Practice Information for a Follow […]
Did you know? A quick and simple Metabolic DNA test could make your medications safer and more effective. A Metabolic DNA test helps your doctor find the best medication and dose for you. Our panel test will show how your body breaks down medications for these common conditions and more: Asthma and COPD Anxiety All […]
Telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT in humans) is a catalytic subunit of the enzyme telomerase, which, together with the telomerase RNA component (TERC), comprises the most important unit of the telomerase complex. Mutations occur at four specific sites in the hTERT promoter in 75% of glioblastomas and melanomas, but the mechanism by which the mutations affect […]
There are numerous studies and valid research, that affirm medications used for treating individuals with autism, have a positive approach. There are other statements and research that challenge the use of medications and believe it is a negative approach, in the treatment of autism. These claims are supporting the fact, that there may not be […]
