Testing with Genomind® Professional PGxTM can help patients feel better.
Up to half of all patients respond poorly to the first psychiatric medicine they try. That’s because everyone’s body is different, and how your body responds to a given medication is influenced by your genetic makeup, or DNA. Genomind Professional PGx looks at key genes in your body that affect how it responds to medication. In a recent study, clinicians reported that 87% of their patients showed improvement with treatment guided by Genomind Professional PGx . They also reported improvement in 91% of patients who had failed at least two medications in the past.
How does the test work?
What does the test tell us?
The test analyzes key genes, selected based on hundreds of studies showing that variations in these genes can inform treatment decisions. It is used to guide treatment for a range of psychiatric conditions including depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), autism, schizophrenia, chronic pain and substance abuse. The clinician can use the report to help select the most appropriate class of medication(s) to use, as well as to help with dosing. The information in the report can help the clinician to choose medications that are more likely to be effective, have lower risk for side effects and adverse events, and are dosed appropriately.
How can I receive this test?
Genomind Professional PGx is available for use by any licensed and prescribing clinician. Patients should discuss with their clinician whether the Genomind Professional PGx test is right for them. Please have your clinician contact Genomind directly to order test kits and/or to receive more information about testing.
