PROVIDE A UNIQUE PROFESSIONAL SERVICE
By offering myDNA in your pharmacy, you can now provide a more personalised service to your customers.
The myDNA Medication test is a pharmacogenomic test where DNA analysis identifies variations in a number of genes that influence medication response.
A comprehensive report is written by the myDNA clinical team and includes an interpretation of the patient’s genetic results, any prescribing considerations for current medications, as well as information on other medications covered by the myDNA test so that this can be referred to for the future.
Currently, myDNA Medication reports particularly concentrate on the genes encoding metabolising enzymes (i.e. CYP450 enzymes) which are found mainly in the liver as well as the gut wall. These genetic variations predict the level of enzyme activity which in turn results in increased or decreased plasma concentrations and drug exposure.
For many medications increased plasma concentrations, due to reduced enzyme activity, can lead to adverse effects. Reduced plasma concentrations, due to increased enzyme activity, can lead to poor therapeutic response.
Enzyme function can also be affected by factors other than genotype, including age, the effect of co-administered drugs (i.e. drug-drug interactions), and the presence of liver disease. These should be taken into account when considering the myDNA Medication Reports.
Reports must be delivered by a suitable healthcare professional. myDNA provides training for medical staff to assist in the understanding of these reports. If you would like to know more about this training, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our myDNA healthcare professional clinical support line is also available on 1300 436 373 9am-5pm (AEST) business days to provide information on the test, including details of which medications are currently covered and provide clinical guidance on test results.
The patients likely to benefit from myDNA testing include those who are:
Each person who takes a myDNA test will receive a highly customized medication report and ongoing access to their Explore myDNA – a secure online portal that provides information relevant to the person’s genetic profile.
