At GEO Healthcare we have multiple offerings that cover a diverse range of specialties. However, there is one offering that we are particularly passionate about and that is our Pharmacogenomic test. Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. With a simple non invasive cheek swab we are able to help medical professionals and their patients come up with a drug regimen that will specifically work for them based on their genetic makeup. A blueprint that will show how each individual patient will metabolize the drugs they are prescribed. Having this test performed will help a doctor prescribe the right drug, at the right dose, the very first time. It is our mission to drastically reduce the number of adverse drug reactions that happen every single day.
Molecular testing looks for specific inherited changes (mutations) in a person’s genetic make-up. Genetic mutations may have multiple different effects on a patient’s health. Mutations that are harmful may increase a person’s chance, or risk, of developing a disease such as cancer. Inherited mutations are thought to play a role in 5-10% of all cancers. These particular conditions are considered hereditary and appropriate genetic testing may be used to determine an individual’s risk.
Some people inherit mutation(s) in the germline, allowing for the mutations to be passed on from their parents and to their children. There are two classes of cellular genes: oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. Often, multiple genetic mutations in a single individual are responsible for the development of hereditary cancers.
Pharmacogenomics is the study of genetic variations that influence an individual’s response to drugs. Pharmacogenomics is the combination of pharmacology and genomics. Pharmacology is the part of science that study how drugs work. Genomics is the study of a person’s genome including the interactions of those genes with each other and with the person’s environment. Each person responds uniquely to treatment, while one treatment approach may work well for one individual, the same approach may not be effective or may cause adverse drug effects in other patients. The implementation of pharmacogenomics helps physicians make informed treatment decisions. This will lead to better outcomes by decreasing adverse drug events and by increasing the effectiveness of drugs.
Genetic testing is revolutionizing how we approach standard care in the medical field. An individual can now obtain a personalized genetic blueprint that will educate the doctors in their community on how to specifically care for them. We aim to connect patients and their doctors with these genetic tests to improve and personalize their healthcare. Find out which genetic test would benefit you today.
While the genes we inherit from our family are the source of many of our best traits, they can also impact our health. Certain inherited conditions can increase our risk for cancer or other illness. You’ll learn through testing whether you have an inherited condition that places you at higher lifetime risk of cancer or other diseases. If testing reveals you’re a carrier, you can take charge of your health through proactive lifestyle changes and medical care.
At GEO Healthcare we provide the most cutting edge genetic tests available today. Each individual will face a multitude of health challenges throughout their life. We want to provide a tool to help you confront those challenges. The specific genetic blueprint that our tests provide gives a road map to your own personalized healthcare. Our genetic tests cover these specific areas: Adverse Drug Reactions, Allergy, Cancer, Gastrointestinal, Pregnancy, Respiratory Infections, and Inherited Conditions.
