Customization of postoperative pain medication with Pharmacogenomics reduces pain levels

A recent randomized study suggests that Pharmacogenomics testing could be used effectively to customize postoperative pain medicine following total joint replacement. The results of this study, which included 107 patients, were published in The Journal of Arthroplasty. Pharmacogenomics testing was performed on the patients for about 16 genetic variants, which would affect the pharmacodynamics and …

Pharmacogenomics of methotrexate in patients with Rheumatoid arthritis – Current Knowledge and Challenges

Genetics play a huge role in determining disease activity and treatment response. In this era of precision medicine, genotyping has become extremely important to identify the safest, effective, and cost-effective treatment. Methotrexate(MTX), a conventional synthetic DMARD, is a potent anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative drug and the gold standard for the treatment of RA. However, around 30-40 …

Hyperthyroidism and Precision Medicine: Diagnostic Issues

Thyroid hormones play an integral role in our physiology – they regulate metabolism, cardiovascular and bone health, neurological functions, and body growth. Aberrations in thyroid hormone levels impact almost all major body systems. Thus, early diagnosis and management of thyroid disorders is extremely important. Precision medicine is vital to determine specific environmental and genetic factors …

Pharmacogenomic Evaluation of Chemotherapy Toxicity in Breast Cancer

The outcomes of breast cancer chemotherapeutic management, including response and incidence of adverse events, differ even in patients with similar subtypes, stages, and grades. This variation can be attributed to factors like patient’s age, diet, alcohol use, smoking, menopausal state, other medications, as well as genetic factors. This article discusses the toxicity and adverse events …

Patient Story – A 60-year-old with uncontrolled Hypercholesterolemia

A 60-year-old man was referred to us for uncontrolled hypercholesterolemiaHypercholesterolemia, or hyperlipidemia refers to high cholesterol levels in the blood. If this condition is not controlled, plaque can accumulate in the blood vessels. This can obstruct blood supply to various parts of the body; if your heart or brain doesn’t get enough blood supply, it …
