Benefits Of Pharmacogenetic Testing
Understand Appropriate Drug Choice and Safe Medication Dosage
When a gene variant is associated with a particular drug response in a patient, there is the potential for making clinical decisions based on genetics by adjusting the dosage or choosing a different drug.
Reduce Adverse Drug Reactions and Potential Drug-to-Drug Interactions
Adverse drug reactions could be reduced by modifying drug selection or dosing in patients with poor ability to metabolize a drug because of genetic variation.
Optimize Patient Care
An overall improvement in the safety and efficacy of prescription medication will lead to better medication adherence, better patient outcomes, and thereby reduce overall medical costs.
