Adverse Drug Reactions

There are nearly 700,000 emergency room visits and 100,000 hospitalizations per year due to Adverse Drug Event. Approximately 5% of hospitalized patients experience an ADE, making them one of the most common types of inpatient errors.

drug incompatibilities

Drug incompatibilities can lead to reduced drug activity or inactivity, the formation of a new toxic or nontoxic active ingredient, increased toxicity of one or more of the involved drugs, and organoleptic changes.

genetic profiling

Genetic profiling of an individual helps health care professionals make better clinical judgments with respect to the type of drugs or treatment to be administered.

prolific results

The results help tailor medications based on a patients genes for current and future prescription needs. the results can be used if the patient has multiple physicians they see for different needs.

clinical practice importance

Pharmacogenetics (PGx) can help identify patients who metabolize certain drugs more rapidly or slowly than average in the population. Application of pharmacogenetics thereby could have substantial impact on the safety and efficacy of drugs prescribed in primary health care.

The main reasoning behind the Pharmacogenomics testing is to help better understand how a patients body will react to the medications they are being prescribed. Since no 2 people are the same genetically, no 2 medications should be prescribed in the same manner. Patients are often used as guinea pigs to figure out what will work best for them, but now we can help take the guess work out of the equation and improve the patients quality of life. The test is non-evasive and easy to perform with a simple swab of the mouth.
