PHARMACOGENOMICS

NOW A REALITY:

Being able to predict drug side effects before taking them.

The Pharmacogenomics Panel reveals how your DNA affects your response to various medications and allows for the identification of the right medication at the right dose at the right time. It determines which drugs have the best efficacy on your body as well as which cause negative side effects. This facilitates accurate prescriptions, minimises adverse drug reactions and eliminates trial and error treatment approaches.

One Size Does Not Fit All

The most effective treatments are made with personalised precision. Pharmaceuticals play a tremendous role in the treatment and management of various diseases. Indeed, from taking a paracetamol tablet to the anaesthesia when undergoing a procedure, the correct administration of pharmaceuticals is crucial.

Unfortunately, many drugs that are currently on the market are “one size fits all,” and do not function in the same way for everyone. As such, it can be difficult to predict who will benefit from a medication, who will not respond at all, and who will experience negative side effects (called adverse drug reactions).

As such, by decoding the information housed within your genes, the WL&H Genesis Pharmacogenomics Panel reveals how your DNA affects your body’s response to various medications. The test analyses gene variants that affect drug absorption, metabolism, and activity — thereby influencing how your body will respond to specific medications.

Combing Through Your Genes

Current Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology enables the comprehensive coverage of 200 genetic variants in 50 genes and provides recommendations for over 300 commercial drugs (with extensive coverage of psychiatric, cardiac and pain medications). This allows our medical professionals to deliver you the right medication at the right dose, at the right time.
