What is Pharmacogenetic Testing?
Pharmacogenetics is the study of how genetic variations affect the body's response to certain medications. This genetic variation can be the reason why certain people do not respond or have side effects to certain medications. Pharmacogenetic testing looks at specific genes to help predict the types of medicines and dosages that may be best for a particular patient.
Who Can Benefit from Pharmacogenetic Testing?
Tiny differences in your DNA can have a huge impact on your body and how it works, including how you responds to certain medications. Pharmacogenetic testing can help identify the best medication for people with common conditions.
