Our medication monitoring program is quality driven and comprehensive. We offer testing of urine and oral fluid to verify a patient’s adherence to prescription medication or their noncompliance for a therapeutic regimen. Our test menu includes all major drug classes.
Pharmacogenetics(PGx) is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. This relatively new field combines pharmacology (the science of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to develop effective, safe medications and doses that will be tailored to a person’s genetic makeup.
Most cancers arise as a result of acquired gene mutations that happen over the course of a person’s lifetime. These genetic alterations may have an external cause, such as exposure to sunlight or tobacco. But gene mutations can also be random events that sometimes happen within a cell, without a clear cause.
