Pharmigene: Molecular Diagnostics
A simple genetic test can personalize medicine for you and reduce adverse drug reactions?
Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) describe injurious effects associated with therapeutic drugs at normal dose. Some adverse drug reactions are not very serious, but others cause death, prolong hospitalization, and permanent disability. Millions of people are affected by ADR in the world each year. Although most adverse drug events can be avoided with attentive patient care, some adverse events are difficult to detect or to prevent in a timely manner. More than 1 million Americans are hospitalized due to ADR each year.
Since the completion of the human genome sequences, personalized medicine based on individual's genomic profiles is now possible. For example, scientists have identified that patients with a specific genetic marker can have over thousand folds increase their chance of severe adverse reaction to specific drug. Using a companion genetic IVD test to offer a safer and more effective drug for patients has become a reality. Browse through our website and see if we can help you.
