A Personalized PGx Test for Mental Health.

IDgenetix® uses a comprehensive genetic analysis to help you match patients with the right medication, and identify drug-drug interactions to help improve medication response and remission rates.

The IDgenetix® report is designed with two simple classifications that clinicians can use to guide medication choices.

“Use as Directed”

 Among the genes analyzed, no genetic variants or metabolic interactions were identified that would suggest a need for increased caution or dose adjustments for medications in this category.

“Use with Caution and/or Increased Monitoring”

One or more genetic variants or metabolic interactions have been identified that would indicate a need for increased caution, dose adjustment or selection of alternate medication.

How to Make the IDgenetix® Test Process Personal

After the initial consultation with your patient, the IDgenetix® test kit can be sent to your office or to the patient’s home for their convenience. The patient’s DNA sample is then sent to a PGx lab where the sample is processed and our bioinformatics analytics are applied.

This simply means that multiple data sets are combined and analyzed, including drug-gene interactions, drug-drug interactions, patient demographics, FDA labeling, clinical guidelines, and lifestyle factors. The results are personalized recommendations to help you and your patient create a treatment action plan.

There are a few other learnings in the IDgenetix® Test Report to help make this a personalized experience for your patient. The report also shows:

01. Current Medications

Medications the patient is currently taking are highlighted in black.

02. Drug-Drug Interactions:

The list of patient medications provided at the time of testing is used to display potential metabolic interactions with medications evaluated in the test panel.

03. Genetic Profile

People generally fall into 1 of 4 metabolizer types called “Phenotypes”. These are simply grouping of people who metabolize medicines in a similar way. The IDgenetix® Test Report includes the patient’s phenotype: poor metabolizer (PM), intermediate metabolizer (IM), extensive metabolizer or normal (EM), or ultrarapid metabolizer (UM).

04. BEERS Criteria

The IDgenetix® report also identifies drugs that are potentially inappropriate for use in older adults due to risk of anticholinergic effects or risk for falls.

How to Read the IDgenetix® Test Report

To make use of the report insights, the IDgenetix® PGx Test Report is broken out into 3 main sections:

The IDgenetix® Test Report shows medications that are either “Use as Directed” or “Use with Caution and/or Increased Monitoring”. The Test Report is separated by disease states such as Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, and Pain. Clinicians can quickly identify which conditions are most relevant to inform medications choices.

The PGx Test Report displays genes, genetic variants analyzed, and the patient’s genetic variant result.

The last page of the PGx Test Report is the summary and comment section. It explains the key term like “Use as Directed” or “Use as Caution”, the acronyms discussed, and genetic variations’ impact on medication choices.

How to Integrate IDgenetix® into Your Clinical Workflow

As a clinician, you know matching medications to individual patients through trial and error can be a lengthy process. 

Many people who are on multiple medications, may experience drug-drug interactions, or have genetic variations that can change the way drugs are metabolized. This can lead to adverse effects or medications being less efficacious. With all this complexity, finding an effective medication can take months or years. That is why we recommend PGx testing to help doctors prescribe medications efficiently and effectively.

Here are the tools you need to help improve your practice efficiencies and patient outcomes:
