Helping you get to the right medications at the right dose more quickly
Not everyone responds to medications in the same way. A medicine that works well for others may not work well for you, and could result in significant side effects. In the United States, adverse drug reactions cause a great number of hospitalizations, and are a leading cause of death in hospitalized patients. Pharmacogenomics may prevent dangerous drug reactions by pre-identifying patients at risk. A pharmacogenomics analysis will study your genetic profile to determine what medications are likely to help you—or hurt you—before you even take the medication. This can help get you to the right medication faster, avoiding possibly life-threatening side effects.
