Preemptive measures against adverse drug reactions
New approaches to clinical psychology
Many drugs that are currently available are “one size fits all,” but they don’t work the same way for everyone. It can be difficult to predict who will benefit from a medication, who will not respond at all, and who will experience negative side effects.
With the knowledge gained from the Human Genome Project, researchers are learning how inherited differences in genes affect the body’s response to medications. These genetic differences will be used to predict whether a medication will be effective for a particular person and to help prevent adverse drug reactions.
Boulder Integrated Health offers comprehensive pharmacogenomics test panels available to help gain insight into a client’s potential response to medications and optimize their treatment considerations and outcomes.
