What is Pharmacogenomics?
Pharmacogenomics (also known as pharmacogenetics) is a component of individualized medicine that focuses on how genetic factors influence individual responses to different medications that may affect drug efficacy, drug side effects, and adverse events related to drug therapy.
This area of study can play an important role in identifying responders and nonresponders to medications and thus avoid adverse events and optimize drug dose.
As pharmacogenomic testing has proven to be a clinically valuable and cost-effective tool in clinical management strategies, it has become more widely adopted by a broad spectrum of physicians.
We offer a variety of pharmacogenomic tests and our laboratories actively contribute to the study of pharmacogenomics and the advancement of pharmacogenomic testing and related technologies, with the goal of enhancing clinical patient care.
