Pharmacogenomics – striving for safer, more effective drugs for you

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

At Mayo Clinic, pharmacogenomics – how your genes impact the way you process medications – is helping doctors to take the guess work out of selecting safer, more effective treatment for patients. Mayo researchers have been leaders in developing DNA tests and identifying drug-gene interactions that affect a patient’s response to many medications, such as […]

Embrace Pharmacogenomics in Your Practice

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Article by Rachel Guibert, Public Affairs Currently, a population with a given disease generally receives the same therapy for all patients. Pharmacogenomics will change this ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to drug treatments. Konstantinos Lazaridis, M.D., Eric Matey, Pharm.D., R.Ph., and Jeffrey Bishop, Pharm.D., M.S., B.C.P.P., are expecting a future practice reality in which clinicians will have every […]

Improve Outcomes with Clinical Application of Pharmacogenomics

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

  Your genes determine a lot about how you look. They also play a key role in how medications work in your body. We call that pharmacogenomics — the tailoring of drug treatments to an individual’s genetic makeup. Faithful readers of the Center for Individualized Medicine’s blog know that we have repeatedly come back to […]

Patient and Public Symposium Recap

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Why is family history important when discussing genomic medicine? What does right drug, right dose at the right time mean? Don’t doctors always do that? Why is my DNA important to understanding and treating my father’s diabetes and my brother’s depression? How can pharmacogenomics help with my mother’s cancer treatment? What the heck does any […]
