In a Modern Laboratory Scientist Conducts Experiments by Synthesising Compounds with use of Dropper and Plant in a Test Tube.

At Access Health Services we offer personalized treatment by using genetics. A single test designed to inform treatment decisions. Everyone responds to medications differently. Pharmacogenetic testing is a non-invasive genetic test utilizing an oral swab to identify how a patient’s genetic profile may impact his or her response to certain medications. Two patients, with the same diagnosis and prescribed the same medication and dose, may exhibit significantly different clinical responses. The information from the test may provide health care providers a faster and more effective path to optimal medication management.

Why it Is Important to Do Pharmacogenetic Testing

  • Genetic variants can lead to unexpected or exaggerated responses to medications, including severe complications and adverse drug reactions
  • Personalized Treatment
  • Develop treatment strategies based on a patient’s specific DNA variants

Who Can Benefits

  • Patients demonstrating sensitivity or lack of symptom relief
  • Patients with chronic conditions and multiple prescriptions
  • Patients with a history of poor compliance due to side effects
  • Patients with pharmacotherapy failure

What Is Included in the Report

  • Drug to Drug: Drug interactions can result in adverse side effects, reduce the effectiveness or increase drug activity
  • Drug to Food: Food consumption can affect the activity of some drugs, altering the efficacy
  • Drug to Lab: Some laboratory test results can be misleading. Certain medications can falsely elevate a lab test, resulting in a false positive
  • Drug to Alcohol: Alcohol does interact with some medications and can lead to increased risk of illness, injury, or death
