Pharmacogenomics, the study of how an individual’s genetic makeup influences drug responses, has ushered in a new era of personalized medicine. One of the areas most impacted by pharmacogenomics is within the field of clinical trials. Traditionally, clinical trials followed a one-size-fits-all approach, treating all patients as a homogeneous group. However, with the integration of pharmacogenomics, clinical trials have become more targeted and tailored, enabling researchers to identify subgroups of patients who are more likely to respond positively to specific treatments, and eliminating those at risk of adverse drug reaction.

Precision Medicine has become a widely used term in recent decades, and one of the most significant advancements supporting its use is the field of pharmacogenomics (PGx). At its core, PGx involves the study of how an individual’s genetic makeup influences their response to medications. This makeup is profiled by looking at the genes that encode the proteins involved in the absorption and metabolism of drugs. Based on these different genetic profiles we can better understand how an individual will respond to a particular therapeutic protocol. By tailoring drug therapies based on a person’s genetic profile, PGx is transforming the landscape of medicine, leading to more personalized, more effective, and safer treatments. In this blog, we will explore how PGx is revolutionizing healthcare and improving patient outcomes.
