Personalized medicine draws upon the fact that every patient is a unique individual. This individuality is written into our genes, and can influence the efficacy of medications, influence the development of serious drug side-effects, and increase the risk for drug-to-drug interactions. Pharmacogenetic tests powered by AssureRx’s GeneSightRx® technologymay help physicians prescribe appropriate therapies for their patients by accounting for their individual genetic differences.
GeneSightRx is a clinically focused technology developed by AssureRx Health that measures and analyzes important genomic variants affecting the metabolism and response to behavioral health medications in individual patients. These laboratory-developed genomic tests serve as a clinical treatment support tool for your practice, providing you with objective genetic-based patient information in advance of making a medication decision for your patient. Knowing a patient's genetic profile and having it available in a clear and easy to interpret report can help you understand which medications the patient would metabolize properly and help inform treatment choices unique to each patient.
AssureRx Health products powered by GeneSightRx technology include:
Pharmacogenomic test developed by AssureRx Health to help clinicians select medications commonly prescribed to treat neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia based on the genetic factors affecting how individual patients metabolize and respond to certain medications.
Pharmacogenomic test developed by AssureRx Health that helps clinicians determine how genetic variants affect individual patient’s ability to metabolize and respond to medications for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Clinicians may use this information, combined with their medical expertise, to support selection of an appropriate treatment plan for each patient.
Pharmacogenomic test developed by AssureRx Health to assess a patient’s unique genetic makeup to better understand how genetic variants influence the way they metabolize and respond to medications commonly prescribed to treat chronic pain.
