Based on the individual's genotype,
the drug metabolism among patients can be different.
Pharmacogenetic Test (PGx) examines specific genetic variants associated with the drug metabolism and can be used to predict the drugs' therapeutic effectiveness, and potential adverse reaction.
Here is what you can get from GC Genome's Pharmacogenetic Test
GC Genome's Pharmacogenetic test analyze 10 different genes to evaluate individuals' responses to 34 different drugs that are commonly used for hyperlipidemia, diabetes, digestive disease, hypertension, cardiovascular conditions and inflammatory diseases.
We recommend the test for following People:
People who are taking multiple drugs
People who need to take long term medications
People who need to select among expensive medication options
People taking medications that may cause serious adverse reactions
People who have experienced or are currently experiencing serious adverse reactions to general dosage
People who are showing resistance or not responding to drugs
**However, due to regional/racial differences and environmental factors, the actual drug response may not match the reference papers 100%. Also, the test subjects’ past clinical history and other genetic factors can affect their drug response. Hence consulting a medical doctor before final selection of pharmaceutical drug is a must.

This test can be performed upon request from a medical doctor.
