Pharmacogenetics is the study of evaluating the impact of inherited genetics on the metabolic pathways of drug therapy. Simply put: this medical breakthrough first examines each patient’s unique genetic code in an effort to anticipate how effective (or ineffective) certain therapies might be. By using this information about your specific genes, we can adapt our approach to your individual care, narrowing the scope of drugs to those that are most likely to provide the best therapeutic benefit.
At Lile Wellness Partners, our interest in pharmacogenetics stems from our focus on personalized patient care. The first step in this process is pharmacogenetic testing (PGT). PGT will provide valuable insight to your unique gene sequencing and identify specific variations in genes involved in drug metabolism. We believe the wider use of PGT is an outstanding opportunity to improve safety and efficacy of prescribed medications.
