Precision Medicine: Delivered by GenoPATH and Your Practice
The New Normal: Personalized Medicine
The successful milestone of mapping the human genome was achieved through the Human Genome Project in 2003 and marked the beginning of a new “normal” for how we think about diagnosing, understanding, and treating diseases in the human species.
This area of science is expanding to cover a wide variety of challenges and opportunities, but there is a specific subset of the broader personalized medicine category which is called Pharmacogenomics that could have immediate application in your practice.

What Patients Benefit Most From This Approach to Personalized Medicine?
There is a mature body of knowledge regarding a range of specific medications and how our genetic makeup can determine very specifically the likely response to those medications. When you consider the challenges associated with adverse drug events and related statistics, it becomes more apparent that taking advantage of the insight of pharmacogenomics could save your patients both suffering and expense associated with medications that are not suited for their genetic makeup.
Just some examples of patients who typically benefit from personalized medicine approach include those that are:
- 55 years or older with (2) or more chronic medication conditions;
- Of any age taking (5) or more medications;
- On a chronic beta blocker, SSRI or anti-arrythmic tehrapy;
- Taking Effient, Brilinta or Plavix;
- On chronic coagulant therapy;
- Taking certain statin drugs or candidates for such drugs;
- On chronic pain medications and/or anti-depressants.
The list above is not comprehensive but provides general profile of patients that could benefit from personalized medicine approach which incorporates both genetic testing and comprehensive medication reconciliation for drug-t0-drug interaction factors.
