Pharmacogenomics is the study of genetic variations that influence an individual’s response to medications. Each person responds uniquely to treatment so the same approach may not be effective or may cause adverse side effects in other patients. Understanding this information is helpful to physicians in developing a strategy to optimize drug therapies.
Data concerning a patient’s genotype are used to maximize drug efficacy while minimizing adverse drug effects and drug-drug interactions.

Based on genetics, everyone has the potential to respond to medication differently the type of information you can expect from the test results:

  • Medication is ineffective
  • Patient’s risk for experiencing unexpected reaction
  • Risk for serious side effect occurs
  • If a higher medication dosage is needed for certain drugs
  • If a lower medication dosage is needed for certain drugs
