Medcheck

Medcheck gives insights into responsiveness to different medications and the likelihood of side effects and treatment failure. Medcheck gives insight into how a patient metabolizes, transports and binds specific drugs, which in turn allows physicians to prescribe those medications that are most likely to prove effective whilst minimising side effects.

Clinical value:

Prescribing medications according to an individual’s genetic profile will improve drug efficacy, reduce drug associated toxicity, and enhance patient outcomes, as well as reduce money spent on ineffective medications or time spent in hospital.

The report provides:

Detailed guidelines on gene-drug interactions, while highlighting potential side effects, increased toxicity, and lack of efficacy.

Assessment of:

62 gene variants within 21 genes that determine metabolizing status of enzymes responsible for metabolism of medications. The report will provide accurate and actionable  recommendations for approximately 200 medications including cardiovascular, psychiatric and pain medications.

  • Patients most likely to benefit from Medcheck® testing include those:
  • Planning to start on a new medication
  • Not responding to specific medications
  • Experiencing side effects to specific medications
  • Requiring doses outside of the recommended range
