The Quest Diagnostics Pharmacogenomics Panel is based on pertinent literature sources that may provide clinical insights to help inform treating physicians about a patients genetic attributes to help optimize patient treatment considerations and outcomes.**

Pharmacogenetics/pharmacogenomics is the study of how inherited genetic differences impact the way drugs or medications affect a person. These genetic differences can impact the way a drug is absorbed or metabolized and thereby influence drug response. Pharmacogenomic tests may provide information about a persons genetic makeup to help doctors decide which medications and doses might work best for him or her. Pharmacogenomic testing can also help reduce the time and costs associated with a trial-and-error approach to treatment.1
