DNA Test of Pharmacogenetics - Personalized Medicine
Pharmacogenetics or Pharmacogenomics studies our genetic predisposition to the effectiveness of drugs. There are many scientific studies that show that medicines do not have the same effect on each person and that the reason for many of these differences is genetic.
On too many occasions we have seen how treatments are prescribed that end up changing after some time. In many cases, this is something that can be avoided by offering patients the medicine that is most likely to sit well.
Our pharmacogenetics test analyzes 700.000 genetic markers of your cells' DNA. Once your genetic map has been sequenced, we apply our algorithms based on the most consolidated pharmacological studies in the scientific community. The result is a report with a list of important drugs, of several specialties, of which we tell you what is your genetic predisposition towards them. A fundamental tool for our doctors.

The first step in individualized medicine, or precision medicine, is Pharmacogenetics, because it allows us to prescribe the most indicated medicines according to our genetic map.
Genetics is creating a new era in the health sciences. Everything will change radically in the coming years; The majority of generic drugs will cease to exist and each time we will have our medication more individualized. We have all seen how aspirin works for some people, headaches for others, paracetamol for others, and ibuprofen for others. This is because we are each different and a large part of our differences are in the DNA. Now there is the technology to understand these differences at the biochemical level and to predict how the different drugs are going to sit us down. This will lead us inexorably to personalized or precision medicine where each one will have his headache pill, the one that will best fit us with the least side effects.
We have not yet reached that point, but with our pharmacogenetic test, our doctor will be able to choose with much more precision between two or three different medications in the face of a certain disease or medical condition.
Our pharmacogenetic report is divided into 5 medical specialties: Cardiology, Neurology, Pain, Oncology and others.
These are the drugs that we analyze
|Oncology||Fluorouracil, capecitabine, pyrimidine analogues|
|Others||Interferon alfa - 2b|
