Biomarkers Used for Pharmacogenomics?
How are biomarkers used in pharmacogenomic testing? A biomarker is a genetic sequence in your DNA that is responsible for some function that your body performs. In the case of pharmacogenomic testing, the function of biomarker regions that are examined during testing are to metabolize or break down medicine in your body to help you with treatment. The FDA has compiled a general list of identified biomarkers that are successfully being tested in the U.S. and many at Innovative Pgx Laboratories.
