Why undergoing this examination?

Despite the latest advances in pharmacological treatment, not all patients with cardiovascular diseases respond adequately to medication. This lack of effectiveness of the pharmacological treatment of cardiovascular diseases may be due in large part to genetic causes, since the variation in the human genome is one of the most important factors responsible for modulating the individual response to medications.

What is this exam?

The genetic profile FG – Cardio Vascular studies the main metabolizing and target enzymes implicated in the effect and toxicity of the different pharmacological treatments of cardiovascular diseases. The analysis provides relevant information about the 14 most commonly used drugs, based on the study of the 36 genetic polymorphisms described in the scientific literature.

For whom is it indicated?

• Patients on pharmacological treatment who wish to customize medication based on their genetic profile
• Patients with drug side effects
• Patients in whom pharmacological treatments do not show the expected results

Technology

Real-time PCR and Long Range PCR
