Studies show that 99% of the population was born with polymorphisms, or genetic variants, that impact how they metabolize medications. What this ultimately shows is that genetics play a critical role in how a person will respond to a medicine. Pharmacogenetics testing can reduce the chances of adverse events occurring in patients taking multiple medications and increase the likelihood of positive patient outcomes.
Genetic Testing for Cancer Risk
5% to 10% of all cancers are said to be linked to genetic mutations that are passed down within a family from generation to generation. Individuals who are born with these mutations are at a higher risk of developing certain types of cancer. Molecular Diagnostic testing can identify the presence of these mutations within the genes. This information will help Physicians to design a specific treatment plan with a strict focus on disease prevention.
