Why Prescription Drugs Can Hurt? The Role of Your DNA - Online Class.

In stock
Product Details

Your DNA can provide insight into how you metabolise, transport and bind certain prescription drugs, and can provide doctor's and pharmacists with information that may potentially reduce your risk of adverse effects and improve drug response significantly improving disease treatment.

Currently, most doctors base their drug prescription on symptoms and factors such as the patient’s age, weight, sex and organ functionality. However, for a large subset of drugs, genetic variations have been identified and research is available that indicates how a person with these genetic variations, is likely to respond to these drugs.
The benefits of this personalised approach:
  • Decreases the length of treatment time
  • Minimises a trial and error approach in finding an effective drug therapy
  • Limits the effects of disease through early detection
  • Minimises side effects
  • Cost saving
The benefits for Physicians are:

  • Streamline clinical decision making, by knowing in advance which patients are likely to benefit from a given treatment
  • Lower unnecessary costs
  • Lowers risk of side effects
