Mobile UploadsAdverse drug reactions (ADRs) cause an estimated 7,000 deaths per year. More than 2 million serious ADRs occur annually costing an estimated $177 billion each year–more than cardiovascular diseases.
Many people have a gene variant that affects the function of one or more drug metabolizing enzymes (DMEs)–the cytochrome P450 enzymes. This family of enzymes is responsible for metabolizing more than 80 percent of drugs in the market.
This altered enzyme function can change the rate of drug metabolism. People with these gene variants are more likely to experience drug toxicity or lack of efficacy. For your safety, knowing of your Gene status is imperative if you take any Prescription drug.
To Avoid ADRs, be proactive and get your Genes tested to identify how your P450 Gene is affected.
