If you've ever felt no benefit, worse or better after taking medications as prescribed, your unique genetic design is the reason why.
Our genetic variations describe so much more than our physical attributes. 15+ years after the human genome project concluded it's initial phase, scientists continue discovering more reasons to respect our uniqueness, especially when it comes to medical treatment. Including why medications benefit some and not others. As the image above depicts, part of the answer lies within our genes and their response to medication(s).

One time screening.
Most medications are designed for and evaluated through clinical trials referencing adult physical stature, usage and dosing. PGx screening helps ensure children receive
Through the course of our lives, our genes basically remain the same, thus PGx screening has a lifetime utility.
