MyTheragene® pharmacogenomics test It helps the doctor to choose the most appropriate medicine and the dosage for the best response of each patient. In this way the highest possible efficiency of the treatment is achieved, significantly reducing the cost and the time of treatment and / or management of the disease/syndrome for the patient and the doctor. The test analyses the metabolic pathway of each patient for over 500 drugs related to simple and everyday diseases such as headaches, high blood pressure, etc. but also with difficult to manage diseases and disorders such as schizophrenia, depression, neurogenic disorders, etc.

Pharmacogenomics is a rapidly evolving division of clinical pharmacology that deals with the research and study of genetically determined alterations that affect:
• metabolism (pharmacokinetics)
• the action (pharmacodynamics) of drugs on humans.
Proteins and enzymes that regulate each individual’s response to drugs often show functional differences due to genetic background.
MyTheragene® is an innovative multi-gene test, with high sensitivity and specificity, which is based on pharmacogenomic science and analyses genes related to the metabolic pathway of drugs.
Many drugs already include pharmacogenomic information in the enclosed leaflets, highlighting the need to adapt prescriptions according to the individual’s genetic profile.
The test is performed on blood or saliva and the result time is 10 working days.
Why should I sign the consent form?
For the use of the patient’s genetic material for testing, ELOT EN ISO9001:2008 and ELOT EN ISO15189:2012 require the written consent of each patient.
Are there any special transportation conditions?
The sample should not be frozen. It should be stored at room temperature (25°C). During the summer period we recommend to have an ice pack in the Kit, which should not directly touch the sample. The saliva sample should simply be transported inside the special Kit, without any other special conditions.
