Pharmacogenetics: Drug Reactions Test

PGX - A simple saliva test with the goal of providing the right drug for the right patient in the right dose at the right time. The test identifies how a person's genetic profile can predict if a drug will be effective, ineffective or even harmful. It determines the right dose for the patient now, and how multiple medications interact with each other. . . . AVOID PAINFUL TRIAL-AND-ERROR!

Pharmacogenetics

Adverse drug reactions and toxic interactions among multiple drugs are the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S.A. They cause everything from allergic reactions such as vomiting, diarrhea, headaches and rashes to disability and death. They are a major cause of hospital admissions and readmissions of cardiac patients.

Adverse drug reactions cost the U.S. healthcare system $136 billion annually. That doesn’t include the high costs of lost productivity, absenteeism and job accidents for companies. And there’s no price tag on the pain, suffering, lost income and struggling of drug-injured workers and their families.

Yet most adverse drug reactions and interactions could have been prevented!

Lorem ipsum, or lipsum as it is sometimes known, is dummy text used in laying out print, graphic or web designs. The passage is attributed to an unknown typesetter in the 15th century who is thought to have scrambled parts of Cicero’s De Finibus Bonorum et Malorum for use in a type specimen book.

For Doctors

Protect yourself from malpractice charges and provide more personalized, precision medicine that achieves best patient outcomes. No more guessing at the right drug and dosage for a patient.

Without looking inside each individual patient, you can't know for certain if a specific, commonly prescribed drug will be effective, ineffective or even harmful ... or if it will cause a toxic interaction with other drugs that could even kill your patient! Contact BBS MedTech to learn how our system can facilitate fast, accurate and easy test-ordering and records.

For Patients

If you take 2 or more drugs and/or tend to have allergic reactions to drugs, speak with your doctor about ordering this test. What works for most people might not work for you due to your unique biology and other medications you are taking. Are you a cardiac patient? Did you know a majority of hospital admissions and readmissions are due to adverse drug interactions that could kill you? AVOID TRIAL-AND-ERROR!
Don't become a statistic!
