Pharmacogenomics 101: What Is PGx?
Pharmacogenomics Helps Customize Medications
By leveraging the power of genetics, pharmacogenomics can help create personalized, tailored medications that are tailored to a patient’s genetic makeup. This can help ensure that each person receives the most effective treatment for their condition.
Reduce Side Effects
Pharmacogenomics can help reduce the risk of adverse drug reactions by helping us better understand a patient’s genetic makeup. This means that patients can receive the benefits of medication without the risk of dangerous side effects.
Improve Drug Efficacy
Of particular interest to many, pharmacogenomics can help increase the effectiveness of drug therapies by understanding how a patient’s genetic makeup can impact drug absorption and metabolism. This is incredibly important, because it can help increase the effectiveness of medications, making treatment more successful.
Pharmacogenomics Is Advancing Rapidly
Pharmacogenomics is an ever-evolving field, and researchers are constantly making new discoveries that can help improve patient care. At Next Genomix Laboratories, we are committed to staying up to date on the latest advances in pharmacogenomics so that patients can receive the best possible medications.
At Next Genomix Laboratories, we are dedicated to staying on top of the latest advances in pharmacogenomics so that we can provide the best possible care to our patients.
