The study of the relationship between genes and response to drugs has been the subject of intensive research over the past two decades. Robust evidence now exists to support testing under clinical conditions.
Pharmacogenomics testing is the most recent addition to the dnalife® portfolio. We analyse genotypes associated with drug responsiveness for cardiovascular disease, psychiatry and pain management, amongst others. Reports provide practitioners with detailed guidelines on gene-drug interactions; highlighting potential side effects, increased toxicity, and lack of efficacy.
mypainRx focuses specifically on possible side effects and toxicities associated with pain medication, analysing 49 genetic variations and reporting on over 30 drugs. The user friendly report categorizes drugs into risk areas and aides the practitioner determining both optimal drug and optimal dosage for any given patient.
