PHARMACOGENOMIC (PGx) PANEL

Pharmacogenomic testing, otherwise known as PGx, refers to a type of genetic test by cheek swab to predict a patient’s likelihood to experience an adverse event or not respond to a given drug. Genetic variation in metabolism may result in high concentrations of drugs and an increased risk of adverse effects in slow metabolizers, which is important when using, for example, antidepressants or pain medication. The demand for pharmacogenomic testing is only expected to increase as researchers discover the potential of personalized medicine and the possibility of new drug development. Currently, the FDA includes black box, pharmacogenomic warnings on the labels of more than 200 medications.*

A Pharmacogenomic (PGx) Panel is a one-time cheek swab test, that lets providers know whether a patient has specific genetic variants to alert the provider of what drugs to avoid and prescribe to the patient.  Just as there are known drug-drug interactions, there are also known drug-gene interactions.

This knowledge can influence dosing of the drug and often, influence the choice of medication. It can also alert physicians to avoid specific drugs altogether.
The GeneDose Report is then provided to the practitioner and patient in an extremely thorough report which will evaluate areas such as clotting risk, side effect potential, drug to drug interactions and expected efficacy.

For those wanting to reduce the time and money needed for trial and error medications, a pharmacogenomic test may be the perfect solution to finding the right prescription. Information about your genetic makeup may be the greatest weapon against a particular ailment or invasive procedure. If you have been frustrated with your lack of success with various prescription drugs, the answer may lie within your genes.

Pharmaceuticals have traditionally been developed using a one-size-fits-most approach with the assumption that medications work the same way regardless of the person taking them. This forces most people to engage in a trial and error process to find the best medicine. Pharmacogenomic testing is already recommended by the FDA to assist with prescribing medication for the treatment of HIV, colon cancer, and acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
It’s no secret that surgical procedures cost Americans billions of dollars each year. This includes both medically necessary and elective cosmetic procedures. Such a large investment in your health or beauty requires considerable care and preparation to achieve the desired results. Your body undergoes intense upset during surgery, and a one-time pharmacogenomic test can assist in determining how well your body clears toxins. This can influence the anesthesia chosen and the dose to administer, as well as the specific nutrients you need to prepare and recover. For example, glutathione might be recommended to take before a procedure to boost the immune system. Surgery also causes inflammation, a normal bodily response; however, inflammation control is absolutely necessary for a successful recovery. Safe Harbour Wellness also offers an Inflammatory Panel to test your body’s reaction to inflammation.
Scientists have found that specific areas of our DNA can predict whether certain medications will be effective or if they are likely to cause adverse drug reactions. *Table of Pharmacogenomic Biomarkers in Drug Labeling.

Perfect marriage of Innovative DNA Testing and Proprietary Interpretation Software.

Our Nutrigenomics tests, are much more than your typical laboratory’s DNA Genomic Test. In fact, our system is the perfect marriage between forward thinking Interpretation Software and Innovative Nutrigenomics Testing. In addition to being the most comprehensive DNA Nutrigenomics test available, the real magic lies within our proprietary SNP Interpretation software.

Our innovative software, takes the guesswork out of the physician’s results interpretation, as it links any identified SNPs to the recommended nutritional support that lends the greatest potential for the most optimal patient outcome. This software provides a detail and a summary, showing highly recommended nutritional support therapeutics, the nutritional or pharmacological support best left to the provider’s discretion, lifestyle recommendations, as well as any suggested additional laboratory testing one should consider.

This saves the provider valuable time that could be better spent on patient care, rather than looking up specific SNPs and the associated supplemental support. Additionally, the concise format of our report provides an easy to understand outline to better ensure alignment between patient and provider.
