The laboratories performing the tests are FDA registered, certified by CLIA, accredited by the American College of Pathologists, and are HIPA compliant. The laboratory form to initiate the test only takes minutes and we provided all supplies and shipping necessary.
The Reports – are sent directly to you. They highlight information to make more informed treatment decisions including whether it is important to consider alternative dosages or medication.
“Increasingly, the Paradigm is shifting to real-world pragmatic studies that focus on patient-level benefits”
Pharmacogentics (PGx), the role of genetic variation on response to a drug, is at the forefront of that paradigm shift.
ADVERSE REACTIONS HISTORICAL CONTEXT
6th century BC – Pythagoras first recorded what is arguably an example of the effect of genetic variation when he observed that some people ate fava beans and got quite ill, while others had no negative effects whatsoever.
Early 1900s – A. E. Garrod recognized that upon administering sulphonal, some, but not all, patients developed porphyria
1940s – William Boyd theorized that genetic difference were the reason why native Britons almost never developed hemolytic anemia after eating fava beans.
1957 – Motulsky suggested that differences in drug efficacy as well as ADRs were at least partially attributable to genetic difference
1959 – Frederich Vogel coined the word “Pharmacogeneitcs”
