Pharmacogenomics (PGx)

The Genome Company

Please Note: We have redesigned the Pharmacogenomics (PGx) section of our report based on recent FDA guidance regarding PGx test reporting.

As a key feature of myGenome, we screen your individual genetic makeup to assess how enzymes that process certain medication may be affected.

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:

  • Genetic results informing drug sensitivities, and interpretations of how you may metabolize certain drugs
  • Future updates as the pharmacogenomic landscape evolves, through new insights and medications
