The traditional approach of prescribing medication is a “One Size Fits All” approach.  With pharmacogenetic testing, treatment strategy is based on on the patient’s unique genetic profile.

 

Not everyone responds the same way to a medication, or they experience different side effects from drugs.  The way a person responds can be due to the genes they inherited.  A person’s unique genetic make-up and individual response may mean that a drug that is effective for one person may be less effective for another.  A drug that is safe for one person is less-safe for another, even at the same dosage.

 

Pharmacogenetics offers physicians the opportunity to individualize drug therapy for people based on their genetic make-up.  Testing people prior to initiating drug therapy to determine their likely response to different classes of drugs is a key emerging area of genetic testing.
