One in five Canadian adults suffers from chronic pain and mental illness is experienced by one in three. Mental and physical health are linked. Inagene Diagnostics Inc. introduced a simple cheek swab test that helps doctors predict how individuals will respond to a medication before it is administered. This best-in-class decision support tool helps clinicians, and their patients choose the right medication, avoiding the lengthy, and frustrating, process of trial and error.
According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, the second wave of the pandemic has intensified feelings of stress and anxiety, causing alarming levels of despair, suicidal thoughts, and hopelessness in the population. Unrelieved pain costs Canadians an estimated $43-60 billion per year in health care expenditures and lost productivity, according to the Canadian Pain Research Summit Report. Patients will undergo an odyssey of different treatments, leading to waste, prolonged suffering, and even opioid addiction. A person’s response to medications can be explained by their unique pharmacogenetic profile.
Inagene’s Personalized Insights™ test helps individuals find the right medication. Two out of three patients will fail their first medication trial. Inagene’s test provides guidance regarding the possible ineffectiveness or otherwise unforeseen, and potentially severe, side-effects of treatments, including cannabis. The quality of Inagene’s test is ensured by its own sole purpose, genetic testing, and research lab in downtown Toronto.
