What is Pharmacogenetic (PGX) GENE TESTING?
PGx Gene testing provides a comprehensive and detailed pharmaceutical report on the most precise and ideal drug and dosage for your unique DNA profile.
Pharmacogenetic testing (PGx) helps your doctor avoid using a "trial and error approach" when prescribing medications. Modern medications save millions of patient lives a year -- yet, a prescribed medication may cause severe adverse drug reactions or side effects for YOU, but not for someone else.
Pharmacogenomics examines how YOUR genetic makeup affects your metabolic response to medications. PGx genome testing has been utilized at major medical centers and in the areas of experimental medicine for many years, but until recently was considered too expensive and specialized to conduct at the clinical level. PGx testing will become standard procedure for medical providers dispensing pharmaceutical medications and recommended dosages in the near future.
