Every individual has a different set of genetic variants which make them unique. Members of the same family may have both, similar and unique genetic predispositions. Similarly, every individual responds to medication differently. We have often experienced that one medication works very well in certain individuals whereas that same medicine may not be effective in others. And in some others, it may lead to certain side effects. Ever wondered why does this happen?
Pharmacogenomics is a study that uses your genetic information to predict your response to certain drugs/medicines. This can help the doctors prescribe safer & more effective medication. Genes influence your drug metabolism and sensitivity towards the drug. Hence, for any given drug, there are two types of people - those who respond to standard medication at a standard dose and those who don't. For those who do not respond, there will be a requirement of either an alternate medication or a change of dosage. A person will metabolize the medicine in the following ways for any drug.
