Pharmacogenomic (PGx) screen

Why isn’t my treatment working?

There are many different medications available to Doctors and the choice can sometimes be overwhelming. Finding the most appropriate medication and dose can be difficult – one patient’s clinical response to a particular medication can be quite different to another patient treated with the same medication at the same dose. A healthcare provider can address your fears by minimising the risk of side-effects and start with a medication that has better potential for success. Knowing more about how your own genetic profile could influence your response to medication can guide treatment decisions for your Doctor. The Pharmacogenomic (PGx) screen test detects clinically important genetic variants that affect drug metabolism. These variants modify the rate at which certain drugs are activated or broken down.
