The lifestyle that is right for you individually has a great influence on switching on the genetic variants that are analysed in the Pharmaco genetic test.
Genetic test – Medications
The Medications genetic test checks for variants of the most important genes for metabolic breakdown of medications. This genetic test allows you to protect yourself from undesirable side-effects of medications Your doctor will explain the details to you and advise which medications you should take and what is the ideal dose for you.
The Medications genetic test screens for the most important breakdown enzymes for medicines. It gives you an overview of the most important variants for medicines, the Cytochrome P450 enzymes 2C9, 2C19, some variants of 2D6, the NOS1AP (QT time) and the SLCO1B1 (breakdown of lipid-lowering agent).
The Medicines Therapy genetic test checks the enzyme Cytochrome P 450 2D6 in detail, and is especially recommended for patients taking Tamoxifen as part of their treatment for breast cancer.
The following degradation enzymes are checked in this gene test:
Extensive analysis of cytochrome P450 2D6. Screening of the enzymes cytochrome P450 2C9 and cytochrome P450 2C19, some variants of cytochrome P450 2D6 as well as NOS1AP (QT time) and SLCO1B1.
