Drug Genes - Complete Pharmacogenomics (PGx) Package

Cost*: 24,000 THB

This package is valid until June 30, 2022

Why is pharmacogenomic testing important?

  •  To assess risks of drug hypersensitivity reactions
  • To adjust the dose and reduce adverse drug reactions from anticancer and immunosuppressant 
  • To evaluate the personalized drug response
  • To select the effective drug precisely 
  • To minimize adverse drug reactions

This test analyzes sequence of 15 genes related to drug hypersensitivity and drug metabolism
For example CYP2C19 gene is associated to Clopidogrel, HLA-A and HLA-B genes are associated with severe cutaneous adverse reactions to Abacavir, Allopurinol, Carbamazepine, Sulfamethoxazole Trimethoprim, Dapsone
 

This test can predict drugs-induced severe cutaneous adverse reactions as below
  1. Abacavir
  2. Allopurinol
  3. Carbamazepine
  4. Sulfamethoxazole Trimethoprim 
  5. Dapsone

The test is suitable for
  1. People who take drugs or are planning to start taking drugs
  2. People who have underlying disease and take many drugs e.g. children, elderly
  3. People who want to know the prediction of drug response for planning drug treatment in the future
  4. People who take immunosuppressive drugs: Azathioprine, Thioguanine, Mercaptopurine, Antiviral: Atazanavir or anticancer: Irinotecan
