Pharmacogenomics – For Doctors & Dietitians

Pharmacogenomics is the study of role of genes in drug response. Pharmacogenomics analyzes how the genetic makeup of an individual affects his/her response to drugs. This field combines pharmacology (the science of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to develop effective, safe medications and doses that will be tailored to a person’s genetic makeup.

This science deals with the influence of acquired and inherited genetic variation on drug response in patients by correlating gene expression or single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with pharmacokinetics (drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination) and pharmacodynamics (effects mediated through a drug’s biological targets).

With use of pharmacogenomic testing, it is hoped that pharmaceutical drug treatments can be deviated from “one-dose-fits-all” approach to personalized medication approach.

Pharmacogenomics can assist in reducing the experiential period of prescribing, allowing physicians to take into consideration the individual’s genetic makeup and its functionality. Thus, it may influence patient’s current or future treatments.

Pharmacogenomics can help the clinician understand patient’s response or lack of response to a particular treatment. It also can act as an assistive tool to achieve better treatment outcomes, greater efficacy, minimization of the occurrence of drug toxicities and adverse drug reactions (ADRs).

Pharmacogenomics Testing:

PSYCHIATRY SUPPORT

Is an emerging tool of pharmacogenomic testing for psychiatry medications, which does analysis of essential genes and help you to identify the best suitable drug for an individual.

Thus it ensures personalized treatment, which improves patient’s response and compliance towards the treatment.

FERTILITY SUPPORT

Is a pharmacogenomic testing panel which screens important genes associated with ovarian response.

It helps to identify genetic mutations and subclinical factors, based on which you can refine the treatment protocol and improve ovarian response.
