Progene PGx

When it comes to medications, one drug is not suitable for all individuals. A drug that works well for others may not work for you. More importantly, even common prescription drugs can cause dangerous and costly negative side effects which are known as adverse drug reactions (ADR). New technologies and tests are now available to take the guesswork out of drug therapy. By taking a ProGene PGx test today, you can easily screen your DNA for genetic markers associated with Drug Respond and ADR Risk. The test results can help your doctor to identify the right medication and right dose for you according to your personal genetic profile.
