Increased understanding of the genetic basis of an individual’s response to drugs, including how and how quickly a drug is metabolized (pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics), has created rich opportunities for the establishment and expansion of PgX services.
Expertise such as this that is beyond traditional lab medicine is crucial to the future success
of your laboratory.
Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics have opened the door to a progressively personalized approach to drug prescription. By identifying drugs most likely to benefit a patient, assessing the likely dose response, potentially avoiding adverse reactions, and reducing unnecessary use of drugs, pharmacogenomics testing (PgX) has helped optimize treatment and reduce costs associated with complications or inappropriate utilization.
As research demonstrating the clinical utility and associated health economics benefits of PgX has grown—along with the soaring trend toward value-based healthcare—PgX services are now on the path to becoming the standard of care. This demand for PgX presents a tremendous opportunity for clinical laboratories, many of which have already over the last few years successfully launched PgX services, and enjoyed robust growth.
DarkDaily.com is pleased to offer a recently published free White Paper that contains indispensable insights and key observations gleaned from an expert panel of lab directors and consultants at leading laboratories, in order to provide clinical laboratory managers the latest information on industry trends, best practices and guidance for labs looking to tap into the latest, most relevant, and potentially successful PgX opportunities.
If you are a laboratory manager or executive, it is essential that you learn more about the growing opportunities associated with PgX services. “How Clinical Laboratories and Pathology Groups Can Succeed in Pharmacogenomics: What the Experts are Saying” will enlighten and inform you regarding ongoing discoveries and advancing PgX technologies, plus provide you with essential guidance regarding the key elements necessary for a successful PgX practice.
At DarkDaily.com, readers can access free publications on a variety of topics tailored specifically to the needs of laboratory administrators, lab managers, pathologists, and lab industry consultants.
