Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is a field of medicine that studies the association between genetic variations and drug metabolism.
PGx provides valuable insights into how individuals metabolize drugs, which can impact the effectiveness of medications and increase the risk of side effects. The adoption of PGx in clinical and diagnostic environments is gaining traction as knowledgebases and novel genetic insights continue to improve.
This white paper from Geneyx describes pharmacogenomics, gives examples of genes that impact drug metabolism, discusses the accuracy of PGx tests and the value of testing, gives examples of PGx applications in clinical practice, and discusses PGx in drug discovery and development.
