GeneSight® is a clinically focused technology developed by Assurex Health that measures and analyzes important genomic variants affecting the metabolism and response to behavioral health medications in individual patients. These laboratory-developed genomic tests serve as a clinical treatment support tool for your practice, providing you with objective genetic-based patient information in advance of making a medication decision for your patient. Knowing a patient’s genetic profile and having it available in a clear and easy to interpret report can help you understand which medications the patient could metabolize properly and help inform treatment choices unique to each patient.
Assurex Health products powered by GeneSight technology include:
- This test analyzes genes that may affect a patient’s response to antidepressant and antipsychotic medications. The test includes pharmacokinetic genes from the Cytochrome P450 family and pharmacodynamic genes related specifically to the serotonin system are genotyped.
- GeneSight MTHFR is a genetic test that can help clinicians determine if additional folic acid supplementation is necessary.
- This test analyzes genes that can affect a patient’s response to ADHD medications, including stimulant and non-stimulant medications. The test includes pharmacokinetic genes from the Cytochrome P450 family and pharmacodynamic genes related to the regulation of neurotransmitters.
- This test analyzes genes that can affect a patient’s response to opioid medications. The test includes pharmacokinetic genes from the Cytochrome P450 family and pharmacodynamic genes that mediate the analgesic effects of commonly prescribed opioid medications. In addition, the report can predict the influence of these genes on the parent drug and active metabolite levels of opioids obtained through urine drug testing.
