Pharmacogenomics

Pharmacogenomics is how your genes impact your reaction to certain types of medication.  Some genes can impact how your body uses medicines in a good way by leading to better treatment response, a smaller required dosage and less cost for medication. Other genes can cause negative reactions to particular drugs.

HudsonAlpha has partnered with Kailos Genetics to offer a clinical pharmacogenomic test that you, and your physician, may use to make medication choices.
