Pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing is study of the effect of individual genetic make-up on the therapeutic effect of the medication. The individual response to the medication is determined by the various factor such as weight, age, diet, habits, and genetic factors, etc. The genetic make-up of the individual majorly decides the metabolism rate of the medication along with other factors. Depending on the variation in person to person gene make-up, metabolism of the medication varies significantly. One drug that works efficiently may not work for the other person due to variation in the time for metabolism. For example, prodrugs administered are required to be converted into the active form for the therapeutic effect whereas if the metabolism rate is too slow then amount of the prodrug converted to active form may be very less hampering the desired bioavailability of actual active drug which in turn may not work. Whereas, if the metabolism is too fast for the prodrug then too much of active drug can result in the hyperactivity.
Pharmacogenomic (PGx) Testing Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing use of the patient specific treatment expected to drive the growth of the pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing market. The increasing emphasis of healthcare professionals to minimize sever adverse reactions of medication which varies person to person tremendously further expected to drive the growth of the pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing market. The growing patient specific approach for the treatment of chronic diseases and study of factors which can impact treatment such as genetic factors which may influence the desired action of medication further expected to fuel the growth of pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing market. The genetic make-up is unique for each person and it doesn’t change hence pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing helps in choosing the patient specific treatment option driving the growth of the market. Pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing enables physicians to choose better suited treatment for the particular patient in turn helping to attain better therapeutic effect driving the growth of the pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing market. Whereas, low awareness among the general population and healthcare professionals may hamper the potential growth of the market.
