Protect Your Patients by Verifying What Kinds of Drugs are Safe for Their System and Proper Doseage Through PGX.
Pharmacogenetics (PGX) is the study of genetic variation that predicts how an individual will react to specific drugs. How we respond to medication is in large part determined by our genetic makeup. PGX Testing is a critical tool in determining which drugs will be most effective in various patients from every background, age and ethnicity. This test provides physicians with the valuable information they need BEFORE prescribing any drugs to their patients and answers two critical questions:
1. What kinds of drugs are safe to prescribe to that specific patient.
2. The correct dosage to prescribe based on their metabolism.
