phar·ma·co·ge·no·mics | fär-mə-kō-jē-ˈnō-miks
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is a subset of precision medicine and the study of how you respond to drugs, based on your unique DNA.
How Can Pharmacogenomics (PGx) Help You Make Smarter Healthcare Decision?
In some cases, your DNA can affect whether you have a bad reaction to a drug or whether a drug helps you or has no effect.
Pharmacogenomics can improve your health by helping you know ahead of time whether a drug is likely to benefit you and be safe for you to take.
Knowing this information can help your doctor find medicine that will work best for you.
