Genetic Testing & Pharmacogenetics

 

What is Pharmacogenetics?

Pharmacogenetics is a vital component of precision medicine and studies how one’s genetic make-up (genotype) influences their response to drugs (or metabolizer type).

The standard “trial and error” approach to medication selection can fail to identify the best initial treatment, potentially causing unpleasant side effects and increasing time without therapeutic benefits. Alternatively, the pharmacogenetic approach provides valuable guidance on medication selection and dosage, making it possible to determine the right dose, for the right patient, at the right time. The principle of tests-This test uses a custom genotyping assay to detect single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and copy number variation (CNV) in several drug metabolizing enzyme (DME) genes. Identification of the SNPs and CNVs present in these genes produces a genetic profile for a patient. This genetic profile assists physicians in determining the optimal type and dosage of a given medication that is most effective for a patient. Panel options-Panels are designed to detect SNPs and/or CNVs in the genes that influence a patient’s drug metabolizing phenotype for a given class of medications.
