1.7 million+ Americans receive Cancer diagnosis each year
5-10% of all cancers have a hereditary aspect
Who should be tested?
Patients whose genetic condition could put them at risk for other cancers or conditions.
Patients with a personal history or a first degree relative with history of inherited cancers.
Ethnicity associated with higher mutation frequency (i.e.: Ashkenazi Jewish, Icelandic, Swedish, Hungarian).
Screening provides you and your patient with information regarding their reproductive risks and how their children may be impacted. By knowing each parent’s genetic risks, families can understand the chance that a child may or may not be affected by certain hereditary conditions that run in the family.
Fast and Afordable Carrier Screening using Next Generation Sequencing
What information does this test provide?
A negative test can reassure your patient that there is a reduced risk of having a child with a genetic disorder.
A positive test allows your patient the chance to pursue reproductive options that can reduce the chance of having an affected child.
1800Med Test Partner Labs use the latest technology in Next Generation Sequencing(NGS) to analyze a patients DNA, Providing comprehensive reports of genetic mutations and risk factors. The ordering Doctor, supported by our genetic counselors and able to formulate a screening protocol to address finding and ensure long term health.
Awareness of risk allows the patient and doctor to take a proactive approach and develop a specific monitoring program.
WHO SHOULD BE TESTED?
Patients with personal history of cancerPatients with family history of cancerPatients with family history of early onset cancer
DON’T RISK IT…SCREEN IT!!!
Pharmacogenetics is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. This relatively new field allows us to combine pharmacology and genomics to develop effective and safe medication dosages which are specific to an individual’s DNA makeup. This means minimizing side effects from the drugs! At present there are over 770,000 injuries or deaths due to drug reactions per year in the United States. Pharmacogentics gives us the promise of significantly lowering this number.
WHAT PHARMACOGENOMICS TESTING DOES
The purpose of pharmacogenomic testing is to find out if a medication is right for you. A small blood or saliva sample can help determine:
Whether a medication may be an effective treatment for you
What the best dose of a medication is for you
Whether you could have serious side effects from a medication
Why is pharmacogenetics important?
When initiating drug therapy to treat a particular condition, healthcare practitioners typically prescribe one of several appropriate drugs. Dosages and timing of drugs are usually based upon the anticipated rate of metabolism and clearance from the body in the average person. They prescribe a “standard” dose based on factors such as weight, sex, and age. Clinically, however, each person responds uniquely to treatment and healthcare practitioners must make adjustments. For example, the healthcare practitioner may adjust the drug dose or switch to a different therapy, depending on whether the person’s condition is responding to the medication and whether the individual is experiencing unpleasant or dangerous side effects. Sometimes a person may find that a treatment that has been working well suddenly causes symptoms when that person starts taking an additional drug. Pharmacogenetic testing for a specific gene is only performed once since a person’s genetic makeup does not change over time. Depending on the medication, a single gene may be ordered or multiple genes may be ordered. Testing may be ordered prior to starting specific drug therapies or if a person who has started taking a drug is experiencing side effects or having trouble establishing and/or maintaining a stable dose. Sometimes a person may not experience such issues until other medications that affect the metabolism or action of the drug in question are added or discontinued. The cost of pharmacogenomics testing varies depending on which test is ordered and your health insurance coverage.
