The PGx program is an industry-first solution that will protect patients from being prescribed ineffective or harmful drugs.
Aging affects everyone, right down to our genetic core, but there’s plenty of evidence showing that each individual experiences the effects of age differently. As it turns out, some people are predisposed to a less disruptive (a kinder, gentler) aging process. New research hopes to uncover why that is.
Yesterday, a test developed by Co-diagnostics for the detection of SARS-CoV-2, received CE marking as the virus nears “pandemic” status. CE-IVD marking indicates that the IVD conforms with relevant EU directives regarding the health and safety of the product.
The State University of New York (SUNY) is running the program with $20 million funding from the Empire State Development’s […]
Pharmacogenetics (PGx) is the study of how an individual’s genetic makeup affects their drug response and metabolism. An understanding of PGx could help clinicians make prescribing decisions and has the potential to be implemented in routine care worldwide. PGx has understandably been gaining traction and support, with pharmacogenomic elements being implemented into many international Genomic studies.
With the falling cost of genome sequencing, it comes as no surprise that there is a growing interest in expanding the availability and accessibility of genomics via consumer testing. Now, Nebula Genomics has entered the market by launching a comprehensive at-home test that analyses the whole genome for just $299.
A collaborative US and Chinese study has found that the microbial communities present on our skin and in our mouths can predict your age, within a margin of several years. Additionally, they found a loss of key bacterial species in older participants, suggesting a potential anti-aging target.
