Pharmacogenomic testing: Relevance in medical practice

  PHARMACOGENOMIC TESTING IN TODAY’S MEDICINE IS AN ABSOLUTE. More than 75% of the population has variations that can change how they react to drugs. Adverse prescription drug reactions kill over 110,000 Americans in 2017 – three times as many are killed by automobiles. Our PharmD report analyzes the patient’s DNA against their medications and […]

OBYGYN considerations

Women’s Health – Obstetricians and Gynecologists facts Pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing is becoming integrated into routine clinical procedures for obstetrics and gynecology patients, consideration of these tests should start at the first confirmation of pregnancy.  Whether you want to be tested is a personal choice, but do not take medicine as it is metabolized differently in […]

Why get tested?

 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 […]

Why consider Genetic Testing?

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 […]

Pharmacogenetic testing

Pharmacogenetics Testing vs Pharmacogenomics Testing Results suggest that drug therapy based on individuals’ genetic makeups may result in a clinically important reduction in adverse outcomes. Pharmacogenetic testing and research can reduce the incidence of adverse drug reactions in the resulting clinical, societal, and economic implications. “Genetics” focuses on single genes and their effects, whereas “genomics” […]
