The most probably drug responses based on your genetic information.
What is Pharmacological Response?
The magnitude of the body’s response to a particular drug depends on two factors: Concentration of the drug at its site of action. Sensitivity of the target site to the drug. The sensitivity of the target cells is governed by genetic factors and adaptive changes by the body. In this report we show the most probably drug responses based on your genetic information.
There are four possible categories for each marker (different testing companies may call these by different names):
- Poor metabolizer. People who are poor metabolizers of a drug may overdose while taking less than the recommended dose. People who cannot metabolize a drug will require a much lower dose than is recommended by the manufacturer.
- Intermediate metabolizer. Those who metabolize it slower.
- Extensive metabolizer. Extensive metabolizers (that is, people who are extensive metabolizers of a given type) are the most common, and are the type of people for which drugs are designed.
- Ultra-extensive metabolizer. Those who metabolize it quickly may require a higher dose.
