Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. Over the last 10 years, pharmacogenetics have become increasingly significant to clinical practice.

Pharmacogenetic testing can help to tailor treatment and inform personalized treatment plans with the highest likelihood of success.
