Drug Gene Testing Services, Austin TX
Pharmacogenetics gives physicians and other health care providers important information about a patient’s genetic makeup so that they can accurately predict how they will respond to a prescription medication, without having to engage in trial and error. Each patient is unique and can have an entirely different response to the exact same drug.
Pharmacogenomics is the study of how a person’s genetic makeup affects their response to drugs. This combines pharmacology (the science of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to develop safe and effective medications and doses that can be tailored to a person’s genetic makeup.
The many important benefits from pharmacogenetics include the following:
- Decreases number and severity of adverse drug events in your patients
- Decreases the need for medication and dosage experimentation
- Contributes to overall drug cost savings and savings from reduction in adverse drug events
- A patient only needs to be tested once for a given medication.
