Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is the study of how genetic variations influence the way an individual responds to medications. PGx enables doctors to test for specific genetic changes to predict whether a patient may have a normal response, a poor response or a higher risk of side effects, before prescribing a specific medication.
The Potential Benefits of The Test:
- Improve the patient’s quality of life.
- Reduce the number of adverse drug reactions.
- Avoid ineffective medications.
- Save the patient time and money on trial and error medicines.
- Help patients reach treatment goals sooner.
