It is part of the field of precision medicine, which aims to treat you as the individual you are and as a result shorten your time to recovery and decrease your healthcare expenses.

YOUR GENES

PROTEINS

Scientists know that certain proteins affect how drugs work.

Pharmacogenomics looks at variations in genes for these proteins.

Such proteins include liver enzymes that chemically change drugs. Sometimes chemical changes can make the drugs more—or less—active in the body. Even small differences in the genes for these liver enzymes can have a big impact on a drug’s safety or effectiveness.
