PGX


What is Pharmacogenetics (PGX)?

Pharmacogenetics is the study of inherited genetic differences in drug metabolic pathways which can affect individual responses to prescribed drugs.

Why Pharmacogenetics?

Fewer Prescriptions

Until recently, drugs have been developed with the idea that each drug works pretty much the same in everybody.

Fewer Visits

It can be difficult to predict who will benefit from a medication, who will not respond at all, and who will experience negative side effects.

Fewer Reactions

The use of (PGX) testing in clinical practice will improve drug safety and decrease the rate of adverse drug reactions.

Results

The results produced from pharmacogenetic testing will provide your physician with information that can be used to make actionable prescribing decisions.

Additional Benefits

Improving Efficiency

Reducing healthcare costs while simultaneously improving clinical outcomes.

Saving Time

Mitigation of costly trial and error periods when trying to select a new medication.

Reducing Costs

Mitigation of costs associated with treating adverse drug events and reactions.
