PRECISION MEDICINE

THROUGH PHARMACOGENETICS (PGX)

Personalized Medicine (also known as pharmacogenetic testing or pgx testing or pharmacogenomic testing) is a medical model using genome analysis to tailor the right therapeutic strategy for the right person at the right time, and determine the predisposition to disease at the population level and to deliver timely and stratified prevention

In the near future, Knowing your Drug panel results will be like knowing your blood type.

ISSUES WITH

ONE - FOR - ALL MEDICINE

4th
Adverse drug events are the 4th leading cause of death in America; and genetics are a leading cause of adverse drug events
Over 75% of patients have detectable variations in their DNA affecting how they metabolize many commonly prescribed medications
75%
100+
More than 100 drugs carry product label FDA guidance about pharmacogenetic testing
CYP2D6 is responsible for processing about one quarter of all cytochrome metabolized drugs
25%

PERCENTAGE OF PATIENT POPULATION FOR WHICH A PARTICULAR DRUG IS INEFFECTIVE (ON AVERAGE)


ADVANTAGES OF

PHARMACOGENETICS TESTING

  • Prescribe a drug regimen with a greater probability of a positive outcome
  • Determine a patient's unique drug metabolizing capacity
  • Help predict how a patient will respond to a specific drug
  • Customize treatment plans for patients
  • Suggest safer doses and/or alternatives
  • Minimize adverse side effects
  • Reduce treatment failures
  • Save patient time and money
  • Improve patient care
  • Prescribe with more confidence
  • Also includes health genetic predisposition

WHICH INDIVIDUALS MIGHT BENEFIT FROM

PHARMACOGENETICS TESTING?

  • Those taking multiple medications
  • Those whose current prescriptions are not working
  • Those on complex drug treatment plans
  • Those with previous adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to medications
  • Those prescribed any of the FDA-approved drugs where pharmacogenetics testing information is included in black box warning.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE TEST RESULTS

FROM PHARMACOGENETIC TESTING?

  • Extensive (normal) Metabolizer
  • Intermediate Metabolizer
  • Poor Metabolizer
  • Ultra-rapid Metabolizer
