PGx Pharmacogenomics

What is Pharmacogenomics

Pharmacogenomics is the study of your unique genetic makeup and how it influences drug effectiveness in order to personalize a patient’s drug therapy. Currently, medications are prescribed based on a patient’s weight, height, gender, condition, and previous drug history resulting in trial and error.

There are many pathways in our body that metabolize drugs and seemingly small genetic variations can contribute to an adverse drug reaction. These risks can be significantly minimized through Pharmacogenomic testing.
