The intersection of genomic insight, pharmacologic expertise, and personalized medicine
The right drug, the first time.
It is a given in medicine that individuals vary in their responses to drug therapy. The unique differences in genetic makeup among individuals play an important role in the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic variabilities in drug response.
As a core element of precision medicine, pharmacogenomics (PGX), has the potential to identify drug therapy responders and non-responders and subsequently guide the creation of individualized treatment plan and dose optimization with the goal of maximizing the effectiveness of medications and minimizing toxicities in individual patients.
Currently, over 350 medications contain pharmacogenomic information in their Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved labels and package inserts.
It is estimated that at least 1 in 4 primary care patients are prescribed at least one medication with pharmacogenomic implications
Drugs are therapeutically effective in 20-60% of patients, and ~40-75% of patients show no response to initial treatments
According to the FDA, lack of efficacy is common, and serious adverse drug reactions (ADRs) remain a leading cause of morbidity and mortality
