Pharmacogenomics (PGx)

The Genome Company

As a key feature of myGenome, we screen your individual genetic makeup to assess how effectively you metabolize or potentially react to 150+ drugs that treat a variety of conditions, such as: 

Asthma, Cardiac Arrhythmias, Clotting Disorders, Congestive Heart Failure, Depression/Anxiety, Diabetes, Epilepsy, Heartburn, Hepatitis C, HIV, Hypercholesterolemia, Hypertension, Hyperuricemia (Secondary to Chemotherapy), Immunosuppression, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Malaria, Nausea/Vomiting, Pain, Schizophrenia, Smoking Cessation, Tuberculosis

Your report can help your physician improve a current or future medication plan to potentially:

  • Reduce or avoid medication side effects
  • Reduce time and money wasted finding the most effective medication (see chart below)
  • Provide more accurate personalized prescription or dosage

With your report you get:

  • A list of medications that could be affected by your individual genetic makeup, and interpretations of how you may metabolize certain drugs
  • Future updates as the pharmacogenomic landscape evolves, through new insights and medications
