Your Doctor's New Genetic Tools

When physicians are given the tools to evaluate a patient's genetic make-up, they will be able to make more accurate diagnoses, and prescribe more efficient drug therapies with fewer adverse side effects.

Differences between people extend beyond our outer physical features. How individuals respond to drugs for the treatment of cancer or other illnesses differs based on the activity and function of enzymes in the body. This information is available in each individual's genetic profile. Even today, genetics is being integrated into individuals' medical treatment plans.
