PHARMACOGENETICS

Your body has thousands of genes that you inherited from your parents. Besides characteristics, such as blood type or eye color, some genes are responsible for how your body processes medications. Pharmacogenomic (PGX) tests look for changes or variants in these genes that may determine whether a medication is an effective treatment for you or whether you could have side effects to a specific medication. Our PGX test results explain the importance of proper drug selection for an individualized treatment plan. As a leader in personalized medicine, Precision Health Resources offers an extensive Pharmacogenetic menu using conventional PCR that aids healthcare professionals determine which is the right drug and the right dose for a particular patient's treatment.
