Pharmacogenetic testing

Look for appointment times

Pharmacogenetic testing aims to identify gene variants that are associated with the efficacy and side effects of medications. The results obtained from pharmacogenetic testing are used to improve the effectiveness and safety of treatment regimens, taking into consideration recommendations based on a patient’s genetic profile.

Taking into consideration the individual characteristics of a person, including their genetic profile, when prescribing medications is part of modern and skilful writing of prescriptions. The results of the test can be used to predict the effects of medications on a patient. Medications that are unlikely to be effective or that may cause disturbing side effects can be ruled out immediately. Pharmacogenetic testing helps doctors prescribe medications in a safer and more effective manner.

What genes are included in the panel?

A comprehensive pharmacogenetic panel assesses 27 genes and provides information on the metabolism of 200 medications, along with instructions on how, how often and how much a medication has to be taken. The panel includes genes whose variations affect the metabolism of medications prescribed on a daily basis. The panel also covers genes responsible for the metabolism of most psychiatric medications.

The testing involves taking a blood sample. The results come back within 30 working days.

The results are provided in a comprehensive report. The report is in English and medically specific. We recommend that you consult your doctor to interpret the results.

The pharmacogenetic profile of a person is unique and does not change over time, i.e. the results of a single test can be used throughout life to treat a variety of diseases and disorders.
