Your body’s reaction
Most drugs are metabolized in the body by enzymes. Your body’s reaction to a drug may be more (or less) active through the process of metabolism. The different enzyme action in your body may result in your system metabolizing the drug either in different speed, or not metabolizing at all to produce its desired effect.
A protein in your body is also able to bind the drug to produce its intended effects. Due to variability in proteins in your immune system, you may experience hypersensitivity reaction to a drug.
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) testing by OneOme’s RightMed® analyzes 27 genes that produce the enzymes that metabolize a drug. To take the test, a simple cheek swap is taken from you. Your sample is processed against hundreds of medications for a variety of medical conditions in order to understand common drug effects. The test result covers over 300 medications commonly prescribed by doctors to treat acute and chronic medical conditions. The test findings provide useful data to pre-determine proper therapies and dosages to achieve the desired therapeutic results for your health conditions. The valuable information offers insights to doctors so they can suggest an effective treatment to reduce or eliminate adverse side effects of certain drugs for your system. You will be able to minimize your chance to suffer drug interactions, as well as to save time and money in pursuit of the ‘right’ drug for your illness.
The RightMed test has the potential to:
• Reduce or eliminate side effects
• Prevent unintended interactions between drugs
• Eliminate time & money wasted from trial and error to find the right drug
• Provide years of more accurate, personalized prescriptions
Oasis of Hope is the first in Asia to bring in the Pharmacogenomics test by OneOme RightMed® to people living in the Region.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
How the RightMed Test works When you take a medication, your body’s response is determined by many factors including your gender, weight age, diet, other medication, any medical conditions, and exposure to environmental agents such as cigarette smoke. Your genetic makeup also can have a major influence. In fact, genetic factors can account for up to 95% of how you responded to medications.
The RightMed test looks at your unique genetic factors to help your doctors identify which medications and dosages may work best for you – and which may not. The test covers hundreds of medications that are used to treat many medical conditions, meaning the information can be used or years to come when your doctors are making prescription decisions.
To take the RightMed test, you perform a simple cheek swab at home or in your doctor’s office. After your sample is processed, a test report containing your results can be used by your doctors to help with medication decisions.
What does the RightMed test cover?
