Pharmacogenomics combines pharmacology (the study of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) and involves how variations in a person’s DNA can affect their response to drugs. From the moment you take a drug, your body begins to process it, in an effort to eliminate it.
Most medications are metabolized to facilitate their removal. These chemical transformations can increase or decrease a drug’s pharmacological activity. When metabolism converts the drug to a more active form the drug is called a “pro-drug” and the more active form is called the “active metabolite”. Modifications can also alter how long the drug stays in your body (half-life).
There can be considerable variation in how people metabolize drugs. DNA is an important factor in determining the speed at which drugs are metabolized. If someone has a genetic polymorphism in an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of a drug, it can influence their drug exposure, clinical response, and risk for adverse effects.
MyGenomeRx is dedicated to delivering information on how an individual’s DNA may alter the way they respond to certain medications to provide a more personalized approach to their drug treatment plan.
MyGenomeRx reports should be used with guidance from your healthcare provider.
