What Is Pharmacogenomics?
Pharmacogenomics is the study of how your genetic fingerprint affects the way your body responds to prescribed medication.
Pharmacogenomics testing through Coastal Lab Partners enables your physician to identify medication and dosage based on your unique genetic fingerprint.
What Are The Available Options?
Tests are offered in four clinical categories, as well as one comprehensive panel to identify how your body absorbs and metabolizes specific medications.
- Pain Management
Ask your physician which panel is right for you, based on medications you are currently taking, or prescriptions you may need.
How Is The Test Performed?
Your physician will obtain a cheek swab with a very simple and harmless procedure, and the sample is sent to our licensed laboratory for testing. Results are returned to your doctor's office, where you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit to review the findings. These results will help enable your doctor to identify the safest, most effective course of medication therapy based on your unique genetic fingerprint.
Why Is It Important To Me?
Because you are unique! Your Lab Partners' tests help identify how your body metabolizes medications, allowing your physician to personalize your prescriptions and tailor the dosage to meet your body's individual needs.
Knowing how your body will react to prescribed medication can help prevent harmful side effects and adverse drug reactions.
