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 […]

Next Generation Sequencing Targeted RAS/RAF Gene Panel

By Center for Individualized Medicine samuelsmith5209

    Mayo Clinic has now developed, through utilizing next generation sequencing, a multi-gene panel to evaluate for somatic mutations within the BRAF, HRAS, NRAS, and KRAS genes associated with cancer. This test can be ordered to identify tumors that may respond to targeted therapies by assessing multiple gene targets simultaneously, mutations that may help determine prognosis for […]
