Pharmacogenomics (PGX)

Find out if a medication is right for you by having a pharmacogenomic test. We will check the genetic factors relating to interindividual variability of drug response.

Pharmacogenomics is an area of genetic testing that uses information about a person’s genetic makeup, or genome, to choose the drugs and drug doses best suited for each person.

Pharmacogenomics test results become part of a patient’s electronic health record and can be used for future medication prescriptions. It aids clinicians on how to determine the proper medication at the right dose to avoid adverse drug reactions and interactions.

Indications for Testing

  • Pharmacogenomics testing can be used for drug and dose selection in psychiatric facilities, pain clinics, oncology centers, and geriatrics
  • To assess whether an adverse drug reaction (ADR), non-standard dose requirement, or therapeutic failure could be explained by known drug-gene associations
  • The patient has not received relief from their current prescription medication
  • The patient takes multiple prescriptions
  • The patient wants to be proactive and determine his/her drug metabolism type before taking a new medication
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Panel
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) can impact any part of the urinary system, including the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra and can range from being uncomfortable to extremely painful.
Symptoms can include burning during urination, frequent urges to urinate, pain in the pelvis, blood in the urine, etc.
While UTI’s are more common in people assigned female at birth, it is possible for anyone to have one, regardless of sex or age.
If left untreated, a UTI can cause permanent damage to your kidneys and even sepsis, which is a life-threatening condition.
A UTI panel pinpoints the pathogen causing the infection, allowing your healthcare provider to select the proper treatment needed.
Respiratory Pathogen Panel (RPP)
Pathogens are microbes with viruses, bacteria, and other infectious substances that can cause illnesses. A Respiratory Pathogen Panel (RPP) looks for microbes in the respiratory tract, which includes the nose, throat, and lungs. Infections in the respiratory system can lead to illnesses ranging from mild to severe. They can be considered highly contagious since they are easily transmitted through coughing, sneezing, or touching a contaminated surface. With COVID-19 still roaming around, and due to their similar symptoms, it is quite common for patients to confuse a respiratory infection with COVID-19 and potentially leave the infection untreated when a negative COVID-19 test is received.

Medical providers use respiratory pathogen panel testing to help rule out various viral and bacterial infections. Some of these diseases include:

  • Common cold
  • Influenza
  • COVID-19
  • Bacterial pneumonia
  • Whooping cough
  • Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)
  • Rhinovirus
  • Enterovirus
  • Human metapneumovirus
  • Parainfluenza virus
  • Chlamydia pneumoniae
  • Mycoplasma pneumoniae
  • Adenovirus (leads to other illnesses, such as pneumonia, croup, and infections causing hoarse coughs)

RPP testing can save you time by helping your provider determine exactly what treatment is needed to treat your infection. This can be done with a simple nasopharyngeal swab.
If you are interested in getting an RPP done, please fill out our online patient form.
