Pharmacogenetics (PGX) Testing

Pharmacogenetics testing involves the analysis of specific genes that play a pivotal role in drug metabolism.

These genes code for enzymes and proteins responsible for processing drugs within the body. Variations in these genes can affect how quickly or slowly a drug is metabolized, leading to differences in its effectiveness and potential side effects.
