The Genecept Assay report helps clinicians make more focused treatment decisions tailored to a patient’s genetic background and can help to inform psychiatric treatments that:
- Are more likely to be effective
- Have lower risk for side effects and adverse events
- Are dosed appropriately.
The Genecept Assay genetic results report includes a listing all variations detected in the genes analysed on the test, plus therapeutic implications, potential interactions and overall clinical impact of each detected variation. There is also a drug interaction summary.
- 24 genes
- Genetic implications for 130 mental health medications
- 3 Report Summary Views for your Clinician
- Genomind® Professional PGx Rx MetaType™ Card
Each report looks at both Pharmacodynamic and Pharmacokinetic effects
Pharmacodynamic: this refers to the effect that a drug has on your body. For example, a drug might bind to a certain receptor in your brain, or you might make a certain protein that increases your risk of a drug induced rash. These are all pharmacodynamic parameters.
Pharmacokinetic: this refers to the effect that your body has on a drug. For example, your body can absorb and metabolise certain drugs at different speeds which can help personalise medication dosage. These speeds are different between people and are known as pharmacokinetic parameters.
