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).
Genetic Healing is one of the pioneer companies in India, working to makes lives better using genes based personalised nutrition. The main backbone of our high end services is the expert team we house. With years of experience in the field of Pharmacogenomics, our experts – Dr. Kedar Joshi is guiding the path to provide Precise Medication to enhance efficacy and reduce Side Effect Profile.
Our genetic test involves a simple saliva or blood test. For this, you can choose to either visit our center or share your address with us to undertake doorstep delivery of the sample collection kits. The sample collection process is very easy; you just need to follow the basic steps mentioned on the kit. Once the sample is collected it is taken back to our lab and processed further. The results take a few weeks after which a detailed genetic report is prepared by our team. The report explains your diet plan and lifestyle modifications, which are followed by counselling by our experts.
