DNA test: Pharmacogenetic Testing

The ADNTRO Premium DNA Kit(or a simple upgrade to our basic ADNTRO DNA Kit) gives you access to our Pharmacogenetic Report.

Pharmacogenetics is the biological discipline that studies what effect a person's genetic variability has on their response to certain medications. It looks at the efficiency or adverse effects that different medications have or might have on you specifically.

This discipline is of increasingly high importance.

Within this section we distinguish two groups:

  1. Assessing the possibility of making dosage adjustments of certain drugs that require genetic screening before being prescribed.
  2. The efficiency or toxicity of drugs that don't require genetic screening but are still important to understand.

 

Are you tired of the trial and error process for finding out which medicine suits you best?

Would you rather know
how your body could react to certain medications according to your genetics?

Or whether you should have a personalized dose adjustment for a particular drug?

Or if you have
predisposition towards intolerance to certain drugs?

At last you can solve all these doubts and more with this pharmacogenetic report of our ADNTRO Premium DNA kit.

Pharmacogenetic testing for drugs with genetic screening

Discover if your body needs a personalized dose adjustment to medicines . This applies to medicines with technical sheets advising the use of a genomic test. This is the case when the presence of biomarkers associated with therapeutic responses.

For example, medications like Azathioprine, Fluorouracil, Voriconazole or Tacrolimus.

Your DNA has all the information about how your body might respond to a large number of medications.

Pharmacogenetic testing drugs without genetic screening

Find out if you are more likely to suffer toxicity as a consequence of taking a specific drug, or if certain drugs could be more effective for you than for the mean of the population, for example.

Our analysis refers to drugs like:

Analgesics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs- Medicines to treat pain, inflammation, and fever, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen.

Opioid pain relievers: drugs for extremely severe pain, such as morphine.

Antiallergics and immunosuppressants: Medications that suppress the immune system, such as hydrocortisone.

Antibiotics: drugs used against bacterial pathogens, such as amoxicillin.

Antifungals: substances that prevent the growth of fungi, or even eliminate them, such as fluconazole.

Antivirals: drugs used against infections caused by viruses, such as trifluridine.

Contraceptives- Hormone-based drugs that interfere with the reproductive cycle in order to prevent pregnancy, such as etonogestrel.

Psychotherapeutics and antidepressants: drugs prescribed for their relief of symptoms like anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses, such as fluoxentine or clozapine.

Muscle relaxants- Medicines used to relax muscles, such as diazepam. 

Cardiovascular: drugs for the treatment of diseases that affect the cardiovascular system, such as atorvastatin.

Antiasthmatics: medicines for the treatment of asthma, such as salbutamol.
