Why consider incorporating pharmacogenetic testing into your practice?
Drug treatment for pain and mental health conditions is rarely straightforward, due in large part to genetics. It is not atypical to require 3 or more trials to get to the right treatment, during which time patients may be exposed to potential adverse effects, as well as the harmful effects of the pain, depression, or anxiety itself.
A simple cheek swab test can deliver a lifetime of insights about how your patients' body processes over 130 medications commonly prescribed for pain and mental health conditions.
What do patients get when they order a Personalized Insights™ Test Kit?
The Cheek Swab Test Kit
The Personalized Insights™ Cheek Swab Test Kit can be ordered directly to a patient’s home, and provides all the tools they need to quickly and easily collect a sample to send to our Toronto lab for testing. The test can be done in less than 5 minutes in the comfort of their home or in your clinic/pharmacy, and a special postage-paid envelope is provided to return the sample to Inagene in the mail.Learn More
The Personalized Insights™ Report
Once the sample arrives at Inagene’s lab, our geneticists carefully extract DNA from the cheek swab sample to confirm which of the 116 genetic variants that we test for the individual carries. These results are converted into a detailed personalized report, describing their unique predicted responses to over 120 medications commonly used to treat pain and mental health conditions. The science may be complicated, but the report is simple and easy to understand.Learn More
What is Pharmacogenetics?
Pharmacogenetics is the combination of pharmacology and genetics, and is used to understand how an individual is likely to respond to medications based on their unique genetic profile.
For example, some people may be slow metabolizers of certain drugs, resulting in a standard dose remaining in their body for a longer time than it should, potentially leading to unexpected side effects. Other people may be rapid metabolizers, causing the drug to be processed and out of their system too quickly to have the desired effect.
Pharmacogenetics can help healthcare providers more accurately identify which drugs (and doses) are likely to work best for an individual BEFORE they are treated, to help them feel better as soon as possible, with minimal medication "trial and error".
