Pharmacogenomics

Pharmacogenomics Testing

Provider - Why do I need this for my patients?

 

GenLab Solutions pharmacogenetic test is a first step into the new world of Personalized Medicine. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) created the Personalized Health Care Initiative to “improve the safety, quality and effectiveness of healthcare for every patient in the US. By using ‘genomics,’ or the identification of genes and how they relate to treatment, personalized health care will enable medicine to be tailored to each person’s needs.”

 

GenLab Solutions primary goal is to enable the physician and patient with information to better understand how their specific gene families interact and impact a specific drug response.

Our pharmacogenetic tests can provide the physician with additional information to mitigate the patient’s adverse response to drug therapies.

 

GenLab Solutions pharmacogenetic test can provide predictive indicators that can assist the physician to determine the risk of thrombosis or prothrombin deficiency and help determine the therapeutic value of commonly used drugs for cardiovascular conditions.

 

For psych the test can help physicians predict patient response to neuroactive drug therapy. These tests incorporate a broad suite of antidepressants, antipsychotics, and anxiolytics.

 

Pharmacogenetics is also valuable with helping physicians to understand their patients’ responses to a drug proactively and ideally eliminate the adverse reactions that often come with these types of drugs.

 

GenLab Solutions offers in-depth analysis of a patient’s cytochrome P450 superfamily (CYP450), which is responsible for drug metabolism and biotransformation. This will allow physicians to fine-tune drug dosage for greatest efficacy and safety without time-consuming and potentially dangerous trial-and-error. This can result in fewer patient visits, faster appropriate dosages, and higher levels of safety.

Who Can Benefit? 

 

Prescribing medications to a patient can be difficult. Everyone’s DNA is set up differently. Take the difficult guesswork out of prescribing medications and look for the following qualifying attributes:

  • Patients who are currently taking opioids to manage pain

  • Patients who are taking a cardiovascular medication to manage cardiovascular problems

  • Patients for whom genetic testing is recommended or medically necessary 

  • Patients with a list of side effects from their current medications

  • Patients that need to be put on a strong medication, and you are unsure how to start their dosing

  • Patients who are currently taking 2 or more chronic medications
